Over the weekend, WTB enduro athlete Jesse Melamed took the win at the Andes Pacifico 5-day race in the Chilean Andes! In a tight race, Jesse finished 3rd on the day to remain in the lead and win the event overall! The race gives Jesse a lot of confidence going into the season, as he ended last year's season early in Finale with a shoulder injury before he could compete in the final 8th round of the season. Jesse felt strong, and confident in both he and his bike to rally through 5 days of high-speed, rugged terrain!
He may not be lounging on it when it's time to shine, but Jesse finds comfort in a WTB Silverado Team saddle for the climbs between every stage.
Congrats on the win, Jesse! May it be an early intro to a season of great rides and even better wins!
