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.
Lansing MC Jack Pine Enduro Update:
I just heard from LMC. Jack Pine will be 70 miles with 6 sections. There will be two gas stops at the same location. The C riders will ride 4 sections getting a break after each gas stop. They should have their scorecards turned in before the A and B riders.
The Pine Cone will be 40 miles - 18 miles to gas at 12 mph and the route back to the club grounds will be at 18 mph.
Should be a great weekend to ride your motorcycle!
Forest City Riders Sprint Enduro Update:
There are two loops laid out, one is the Cross Test which will be the moto track, the practice turn track, and open woods. The other will be the Woods Test which will be typical woods loop. Each should be around 4 miles long if the weather holds.
All riders will have to complete 4 laps of each test. Everyone will start on the Woods Test on your "minute" to get things started. Depending on rider turn out we will have 2 o4 ...riders leave every 30 seconds. After that test is complete you can go to either test; you do not have to do them in any order. You will have from 10-3 to complete all your laps.
The scoring will be done with LiveLaps transponders and the club is paying for them, no extra fee to the riders. If you have a LiveLaps scoring chip we can update it for you so we can keep ours for the fall enduro. We will try to have live scoring but coverage at the track isn't the best so we can't promise that.
This is a no timekeeping event. So tell your hare scramble, moto buddies, etc. to come out and try something new.
Missouri Mudders Leadbelt National Enduro Flyer and Pre-Entry:
Pre-Entry opens tomorrow night at 7:00pm central. I recommend pre-entering for this enduro since it's a Midwest favorite and has the possibility of filling up.

Fellow Enduro Rider Zero'd his last check:
7 Time National Enduro Champion and AMA Hall of Famer Bill Baird from Sterling, IL passed away early Wednesday, July 12, as a result of injuries he sustained from a previous fall. He was 88.
Mr. Baird was the
leading AMA National Enduro Rider from the mid-1950s to the late 1960s and won
seven consecutive national enduro championships during that time. He was
inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999.
In addition to being a top competitor, Mr. Baird was also a key figure in the AMA, serving on the Board of Trustees for 21 years and being one of the driving forces behind the formation of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum through his activities for the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation.
Mr. Baird also was an avid motorcycle collector. Several of his machines have been displayed at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum.
Visitation is scheduled for July 21, with the funeral July 22. McDonald Funeral Home in Sterling, Ill., is handling arrangements.
