Latest episode in the cool US Hard Enduro docu-series “Heroes” from the Shotgun Hard Scramble, the second Keystone Challenge double-header race in three days hits Sugarloaf, PA for one of the toughest in the calendar.

The ’23 Shotgun Hard Scramble was round five of the USHE Championship and round four of the AMA East Hard Enduro Series and is a relatively new hard enduro race but already established as one of the toughest races of the season.

The High Mountain Dirt Riders course builder Mike Soudas ramped up in difficulty but it didn’t stop Trystan Hart clocking yet another victory, this time ahead of Ryder Leblond who battled with Cody Webb for the second spot.

Jonny Walker was fourth and leading a list of European riders jumping across the pond including Alfredo and Sandra Gomez who won the Pro Women's class ahead of Rachel Gutish and Hallie Marks.

This was the second race of the Keystone Challenge weekend, which followed the day after Tough Like RORR. The Keystone Challenge combines two USHE Premier rounds in three days, creating one of the most challenging weekends of the year. The athletes were plenty tired after RORR, but they had to save their bodies and equipment for this 5 hour, two-lap race.

The next and final round of the 2023 USHE Premier Championship will be the Silver Kings Hard Enduro in Kellogg, Idaho.
