CHARLES JONES

Discipline: Enduro

Competition Level: Senior  

Bikes: Race Bike - Giant Reign 1, Training Bikes - Giant XTC Advanced, Giant TCR Advanced, Federal BMX, Octane Spark jump bike.

Bike Setup: Monarch shock set up with air volume spacers to increase the spring rate. Similarly, with the Pike fork the air tokens reduce the air volume which improves the performance from the stock setup. I use 760mm Renthal bars and Renthal stem and ride clipped in with Shimano XT SPD Pedals. I run my tyres tubeless and make my tyre choice for each course.

About Charles

Charles started off riding BMX and freeride MTB before taking up Enduro Racing, after a 10 year break, in 2014.

A solid first season as a privateer caught our interest and we have been happy to support Charles since 2015. Loving the Giant Reign 1 Charles was regularly on the senior podium in 2015 and stepped it up in 2016 with Senor wins in both the British Enduro Series and Welsh Gravity Enduro races. A solid 73rd in round 3 of the Enduro World Series is a real indication of his talent in just his 3rd year of enduro racing.

1st place on the Welsh Gravity Endure for Team Tredz rider Charles Jones

On the Top Step Again | 8th March 2016

After the first round at Afan last week where I managed to take the win I felt confident with round 2 of Welsh Gravity enduro (first round of Mini Enduro). Bike Park Wales has always been a race where I am not sure if I enjoy, being so fast and mainly gravel it’s just something that I am not comfortable with I much prefer the mud and roots!
