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.

More MGR Bitter Start Review:
Well Rain and Sleet with 30 degree weather takes some great trail and makes it into an enduro. Luckily that stopped as we started but the trail was slick and froze in a couple spots. Huge thanks to the MGR crew for having an enduro again in Morrison and to all 115 riders that came out and had some fun:)
1st: Chase Robison 20pts
2nd: Darren Carlson 23pts
3rd: Bren Raschke 24pts
4th: Shane Klimek 26pts
5th: Aaron Fahrer 27pts

Reminder District 17 Clubs & Riders FYI:
There were two rule change proposals for the 2015 season and both of them passed for 2015.
1: Combine 200B and 250B into one class. There just isn't enough participation in either class to justify them anymore. This will also mirror the A class that is combined 200A and 250A
2: Split the Super Senior class into A and B. There has been an increase in rider count in this class and it justify's the split.
Rich Lafferty Riding School April 2015 Update:
We still have 3 open spots for Rich Lafferty's school at the Muddobbers in Matthews Indiana. They are 325 for both days or if you just want a 1 day it is $162.50. I will be providing Hamburgers and Hotdogs on Sat for lunch break. I just spoke with Rich in S.Carolina and he is pumped and is planning a great experience for us all. Hope to see 3 more names on the list. You can pay for the class online at Rich Lafferty racing.com.
Thanks Shawne Collins.

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.
