Rabaconda Rider Jamie McCanney [Q&A]
Enduro seems to run in the McCanney veins. Jamie McCanney started his dirt bike career pretty much like his brother Danny - with a small-wheeled motocross bike. Fast-forward a few years and it was no surprise to see the Manx rider become the EWC Youth Cup Champion in 2013.
