The Hells Gate Hard Enduro is considered one of, if not the most, difficult enduros in the world. The route is anything but predictable, the terrain is absolutely brutal, and it can make grown men give up in utter defeat. Graham Jarvis is no ordinary man. Watch him utterly destroy the course in the video below.

Considered the King of Enduro, Jarvis tackles Hells Gate aboard his Husqvarna TE300 with reckless abandon, charging through sections of the course others simply can’t figure out. Watch as he slaps a GoPro on his helmet and takes us for a run so we can see what he sees.

He makes it look so easy, but it’s not until he comes up on other riders simply stopped or crawling along that his sheer skill is on full display. It should come as no surprise Jarvis would end up winning the race — his fourth consecutive victory — making him the most successful racer in the event’s history. Second place went to Jonny Walker, and the two men were the only ones to make it to the finish, as anyone more than 30 minutes behind the leader is automatically dropped from the race. Jarvis’ margin of victory over walker? Twenty-two minutes.

Enough with the build-up. Just check out the video.
