MANIZALES, Colombia (April 1, 2018) France's Karim Amour arrived in Colombia prepared to do battle in unfamiliar territory against rivals boosted by hometurf confidence. Amour brought his own swagger to bear on a Men's Masters 40+ field with more than 50 competitors taking aim at the top spot.
"The first thing I said to myself was, hey Karim, today this is a war," Amour said. "I needed to be headstrong, balanced, and to stay on the bike."
This is Amour's second victory in an Enduro World Series event and rather than simmer in his success, he's already thinking ahead to Round 3 on his own hometurf in Montagnes du Caroux, France.
"I hope I can score a good result in front of a hometown audience; it's very important to represent myself well in a national race."
