Recovery time is over. The Royal Distributing Canadian Enduro Championships were a big success, no small part due to the dedication of volunteers and the passion of the riders at the events. Trudy Elder provided some amazing shots for Inside MotoX & Offroad's website. The name might seem familiar as her husband, Brad, suffered a terrible crash.
