Last year, WTB partnered with the Semper Fi fund to create a mountain bike skills clinic for wounded veterans. This year, they’ve decided to make the event an annual tradition.

To amp up the stoke, they partnered with the TDS Enduro. This incredible two day race series is held on a private ranch that’s crisscrossed with trails that suit every skill level.

With coaches like Jason Moeschler and Mark Weir on hand, everyone's skills progressed quickly.

The soldiers spent the first two days of the event heckling racers (or throwing on a race plate), then jumped into three days of riding with legends Mark Weir and Jason Moeschler.

The whole purpose of the event was to promote recovery through sport. And from the looks on everyone’s faces at the end of the week, that goal was met. If you’re interested in donating to the Semper Fi Fund, visit Semper Fi Fund.

    Being an Air Force vet that did his service in relative safety for 4 years just makes me proud of these guys who gave up a lot. Teared up a few times. Thanks to Semper Fi and WTB.
