Although Curtis Keene was a successful downhill mountain bike racer for over a decade, with many contest podiums from Sea Otter to Crankworx to USA Cycling Mountain Bike Nationals, he found his true calling in the up-and-coming sport of Enduro mountain biking. Enduro, which is relatively new in North America but has been popular in Europe for years, involves daylong or multi-day mountain bike races where riders peddle uphill but are only timed on the multiple descents. In his first year of racing Enduro, in 2012, Curtis won the overall title on the North American Enduro Series. The California native goes by “American Dream” in the mountain bike world, due to his Hollywood good looks and the fact that he’s consistently been one of the top Americans in a sport dominated by Europeans. “Nicknames choose you, you don’t choose them,” Curtis says. “Wherever I go, I can’t escape that nickname.”
