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.

 

Clubs:

 

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.

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.

Knuckle Buster Enduro Update:

We missed all the severe weather from the June 22nd storms, but did get around ½ inch of rain, which was really needed to help cut the dust down. Event day looks sunny, with a low of 56° and a high of 80°.
 
For the last 5 weeks the KBE crew has been working tirelessly to put on a great event. There will be 61 ground miles, split evenly between trail and roads.

The trail crew has worked hard to move trail from areas that were wet last year, as well as some rutted out trail from last year. We have either re-routed or removed many of the larger logs from the trail. Countless hours have been put in removing face-slappers and pine limbs. With this year’s growth pattern we have a hard time keeping up.

The guys burning the trail are all grins. Trail is clearly marked, and a blast to ride. I have sampled it a couple times myself.

We at KBE are doing a couple things differently this year. We will have 2 restarts included in the event this year. There will be 1 restart for everyone for our longest section, which is 6.8 miles, as well as a restart for the A/B section. There will be a FREE territory road section before the first restart.  

Gas will be about 35 miles out, and a trailer will be provided. There will also be a gas available for the A/B riders back at the staging area. Finish for the C and Woman’s and 60+ class riders will the staging area.

I have heard the trophies are really cool this year. 

The “pit favorite” of pulled-pork sandwiches (and hot dogs) will be available for a donation after the event.

We look forward to seeing everyone on the 28th for the best ride in southern Michigan!

General FYI:

I got notice that the server this website sits on is being decommissioned.  So I have to move everything to a new server.  Of course it has been short notice so I hope to get everything moved over tonight and hope it all goes smooth.  There's a big possibility that things won't go smooth and the site will be down for a little bit.  So if you come here in the next couple of days and nothing is here things didn't go smooth but know it will be back up as soon as I can.

Hardcore Jesus Freaks Grapevine Family Enduro Postponed:

The Grapevine Enduro in Lawton on June 27, 2015 is postponed.

The new date is August 29, 2015

...

To much water and soft ground will have to much impact on the land. It will also be no fun for many riders especially those on smaller tires.
Battle Creek national hare scramble also postponed. Their new date is August 30, 2015. We have coordinated together so as to keep travel time low and allow riders to attend both. Sorry for the inconvenience.

SandStormers Loose Moose and Mini Moose Enduro Review / Results:

I've ridden many of the Sandstormers events in the past 18 years and both the Mini and Loose Moose were one the most fun events they have put on.  If you missed it you missed two great enduros.

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 point’s chaser and want the correct score / points.

Facebook FYI:

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.
