Do you want to win a brand new bike, setup like the Trek Remedy ridden by Enduro National Champ Chris Panozzo? Shimano Australia and AMB want to help you get on a new bike setup with a Shimano XT Di2 M8050, Fox suspension and Bontrager parts. And we want to send you to Finale Ligure for the final round of the Enduro World Series (EWS) to ride with Chris and shoot a video. The Shimano Video Competition is the most exciting competition AMB has ever put on for you - our readers!
