Graham Jarvis
« on: July 10, 2017, 01:16:50 am »

Jarvis to me is the all time best Extreme Enduro rider on the planet. At 42yrs old he is a master of his trade. He is definitely the most consistent rider. Its a pity there is no Official Extreme Enduro world championship so he could be crowned a "World Champion' . Not sure how much longer he can continue his winning ways as there are lots of young guns coming up through the ranks but for now he is handing out riding lessons.

Absolutely agree - He's so bloody consistent and the epitome of his nickname "The silent assasin". He will always be known to be THE Extreme Enduro champion, even if it's unofficial.

BUT I fear his reign is starting to come to an end and we might see the fall within the next year.

He is so legit I agreed to let him take a pic with me :lol8:

He is a very down to earth guy also. Never shoots his mouth off - a trait I admire in people. I used to own the bike he rode on the 2012 "Roof - the year Wade won, and Altus De wet came second (I think it was Altus in 2nd?). I sold the bike in January, and can still kick myself. At least it lives with an enthusiast and a fellow WD now.

Amazing, considering he is a good 20 years older than many of the other top riders.

Geriatric, but still kicking young ass! Probably would have won the first hard enduro of the year on the weekend - Alestrem -  if he hadn't smashed his clutch perch. Left the pits 10mins back after a quick repair, and still made it to 2nd! The old goat is redefining what is possible for a creaking body destined for the dustbin. Go Graham!!

He has been changing between 2T and 4T bikes on a regular basis between events throughout his career - all depends on the race and conditions.
