Welcome to MidwestEnduros.com, created and updated by Ryan Moss. My hopes are to post news about upcoming enduro events, results from each race, and points standings from each series. The series that I try to cover are: AMA District 14, 16, 17, 23 and IERA events. I will try to provide a simple and efficient way of getting the information out to the Midwest Enduro Riders.
I want to help promote your event and to provide information to the riders. So get your information to me and I will get it posted up for you. I can post before / after race information, route sheets, results, etc. Preferred methods are Microsoft Excel, Word, or PDF Files.
New Enduro Riders:
Please check out the About Enduros tab to get information about the sport of enduros. Lots of your questions can be answered there.
Hill and Gully Summer Bummer Flyer:
Note the Saturday event will also pay District 17 Hare Scramble points.
Turkey Scratch Enduro Riders Skunk River Enduro Update:
The event has been canceled as well as the HS on Sunday. They recieved a bunch of rain and the club felt it was best to cancel for this weekend. If they reschedule I will post it up here.
Endurocross tomorrow night in Mendota, IL:
The team at Megacross is putting on an endurocross tomorrow night. Check out there page for more information.
Update from the Muddobbers MC on thier family enduro and Dual Sport this weekend:
Looks like the events are going to happen this weekend. The weather is cooperating so far and club members are working all week to get the trails in shape. They are hard at work making sure the kids can have a fun ride. Sign up is 6-8 Friday evening and starts at 8 Saturday morning.
Some changes to the Family Enduro Layout: 1st loop will be 22 miles at 18 mph; 2nd loop will be 15 miles at 12 mph. Things are drying up pretty good, so looking forward to a great event on Saturday.
The dual sport mileage is around 60 miles for the 1st loop and 25 for the 2nd loop. The Dual sport will use some of the trail that will be run for the National Enduro in the fall too.
Update from the Muddobbers MC:
We have had a lot of heavy rain and there is a chance we might have to cancel both the Family Enduro and the Dual Sport this weekend. A decision will be made mid-week. Stay tuned.
Turkey Scratch Enduro Riders Skunk River Enduro Update:
**UPDATE** Good news- Due to Ma Nature there will be an extensive herd of mosquitos in the woods. This has also helped with their habitat. Not SO Good- We are Unable to connect the bottoms. Plenty of swamp between the high spots. GOOD NEWS we have 24.1 ground miles per loop for the Enduro! MORE GOOD NEWS only 2/10th mile of road!!! Due to the expected heat we are being liberal on the resets! You should have time to grab a drink and such. HARE SCRAMBLES- Should have between 13 & 14 miles of trail for the big bikes. SEE YA'LL SATURDAY & SUNDAY!!!
Muddobbers MC Covered Bridge Pre-Entry reminder:
Wanted to put out a reminder that pre-entry opens on 7/29/15 @ 7:00pm central. I highly recommend that everyone pre-enter to make sure they get an entry.
Update from the Family Enduro Series:
Rain, Rain, PLEASE go away!!! Well, at least in southern Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. We have had to postpone two events. The Grapevine in Lawton will be on August 29th (there is a National hare scramble in Battle Creek the next day).
Treaty City MC has decided to reschedule their FES event to October 4th (Sunday). They are working with Rich Lafferty to have a riding school at their clubgrounds on Saturday, October 3rd. It is a great opportunity to learn some new skills and put them into practice at a family enduro the next day. The details are still being worked out. Stay tuned for information on the cost, format and start time for the Rich Lafferty Riding School.
Speaking of riding schools, Mandi Mastin will be having one at the Lansing MC clubgrounds on Friday, August 21st (the day before the Pine Cone). This program will start at 2:00 and will include tips on turning, balance, log crossing, and many more skills. Mandi did a similar program a few years ago for the ladies who rode the family enduro series. She is willing to include "the boyz" who are 10-15 years old - bike must be 85cc at a minimum. We are limiting the group to the first 15 people who. If you have any questions or would like to register for this riding school, please contact Mandi directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Muddobbers MC Family Enduro and Dual Sport flyers posted:
If you want a great weekend of singletrack riding then check out the Muddobber's events. The family enduro is a great event and the dual sport is bascially all thier enduro trail linked together, not a two track type dual sport.
Lansing MC event flyers posted:
The Pine Cone Family enduro is the original family enduro and always a good one. The Jack Pine is a national this year and should be a fun one.
Knuckle Buster Enduro Results:
Great weather made for a very fun day. First time I've ridden this event and it was worth the drive. Not going to lie I can live without timekeepers anymore. I just don't find "playing the game" fun anymore but I know many enjoyed it. Either way it was a fun event and one that everyone should attend at least once.
If you rode the event and want to provide feedback click the survery link below.
Treaty City MC family enduro postponed:

General FYI about scoring and protest period:
This season I've received more than the usual amount of communications
about a riders score being wrong long after the event is over. While most
cases the scores did have issues it is long past the protest period that is held
at the event. Per the AMA rules once the protest period is over the
results are final. What this means is it's the riders responsibility to
stay and make sure your score is correct, not bail to get home early and then
call, txt, email two days later that you score was wrong and it should be fixed.
Yes I know everyone has a long drive and sometimes you just have to leave so if
that is the case have a buddy check for you. While it's no fun for you to
have a messed up score it's no fun for a rider to think he got X place at the
event then when points are posted he got X. And truth be told it's no fun
for the Directors of each series to be in the middle of that. So please
stay or have your score checked, especially if you are a pointís chaser and
want the correct score / points.
In case people didn't know I've
created a MidwestEnduros.com Facebook page. It will not replace the
website but I can update that a little faster, especially at the races. If
your a Facebook person check it out and give a like. The link is to the
left at the bottom.
District 17 Rider Survey:
Thanks to the riders that have been filling this out. Nice to get feedback and see where things can improve. For those that haven't filled it out it's still open and always good to get more feedback.
As I stated earlier I'm looking for ways to improve the series. I hope to share this info with clubs to create a better series and get the rider turnouts back up. I went ahead and created a quick survey hoping this was an easier way for people to provide thoughts. It shouldn't take long so please run through it.
