Suffering comes in many forms, and Taylor Lideen is an expert when it comes to spending countless hours in the saddle as a long-distance endurance XC athlete. After a powerful and ultra-successful stint on the enduro scene, Lideen stepped in to the professional National Ultra Endurance series in 2016 and won the season opening race as a rookie. With a spot on the NUE podium at the end of 2016, he remembered where he lay his roots and has focused on endurance XC ever since. For the 2018 season, Lideen can be found traveling all around the country with his wife Mary and their two Dutch Shepherds. He will venture in to unknown territories as he gives gravel racing a shot and will also make an appearance at shorter style XC events, such as the Epic Rides Off-Road Series.
