    "The American Dream" has serious backing in his bid for the Enduro World Series title</p><p>
    </p><p>
    Curtis Keene may be North America’s best hope for a top result at the Enduro World Series. Keene had focused on racing downhill for years but when he tried his hand at some Enduro racing in 2012, it was evident that he had great potential. By the end of 2012 he had won the North America Enduro Series overall title, then proved his international credentials by placing third at the final round of the SuperEnduro series in Finale Ligure, Italy.</p><p>

    During the off-season Curtis has made some big changes in order to really make a solid attempt at the Enduro World Series title. He has adjusted his training, dropped some muscle mass, switched to big wheels, and now gets a coveted Red Bull helmet deal.</p><p>
    </p><p>
    For 2013 Keene will be racing with a Red Bull helmet on his head; a huge deal indeed. In addition to Red Bull, Keene retains his long-term sponsors, Specialized (frames, wheels, tires, open face helmets), Troy Lee Designs (kit and full-face helmet), SRAM (brake and drivetrain), RockShox (Suspension and seatposts), Truvativ (bar and stem) and Red Bull. This is quite the support package and should help give him a solid footing to reach for his goals.</p><p>

    Bike sat down with Curtis in Sedona last week to find out more about his preparations, his thoughts on wheel sizes, and his shiny, new helmet.</p><p>
