Moose Enduro Update:
The course is looking great! Woods and Plains to start the day. The C riders are
done after 4 sections of all woods and Plains.
A and B riders get to ride the infamous moon rocks for section 5, and the A
riders finish their day with a very technical section we call "Kenny's AA".
Entire course will be run at 30 mph (hey, it makes the math easier!).
Sections are approximately:
Section 1 ~ 10 miles
Section 2 ~ 6 miles
Section 3 ~ 13 miles
Section 4 ~ 9 miles
Section 5 ~ 9 miles
Section 6 ~ 6 miles
There will be two gas available, one after section 2 (remote), and one after
section 4 (at staging). A few transfer sections will add some mileage.
Looking forward to a great enduro!
LIFE STORY AND
SERVICE DETAILS FOR NORM BERGQUIST:
Norman Bergquist, age 73, of Elburn, passed away peacefully, after a long
battle with cancer, Monday, June 6, 2016. His body may have been weak, but his
spirit was strong and has now slipped the chains of his disease and lives free
and whole in Heaven.
He was born December 3, 1942, in Aurora, IL, the son of Hilmer and Irene
Norman grew up on the family farm in Elburn and attended local schools. He
graduated from Kaneland High School with the class of 1961, but not before
playing both football, track and garnering the nickname “Cowboy”.
Norm had his heart stolen faster than he could ride when he met Diane Moulding.
An Elburn boy, Norm stole a beauty from Batavia, and never looked back. Although
they waited until after high school to date, in Norm’s eyes, the deal was
already done. They were united in marriage on November 6, 1965 at the Batavia
They began their new life together back on the family farm and that is where
they stayed to raise three children and make a million memories to treasure.
Norman travelled across the country showing cattle, but made a name for himself
racing motorcycles from Ascot Park, CA to Daytona, FL to more local races in
Cicero and Sycamore. In later years, he was chief of the pit crew for his boys
as they “raced” in his footsteps. Norm delivered feed for DeKalb Feed for ten
years. In 1979, Norm began a 30 year career as a machine operator for Thryselius
Machining Inc., located in Elburn. He put down his tools on May 20, 2009, but
worked just as hard in and around his home. There was no “quit” in this man.
Norm was a proud Eagle Scout and was active in 4-H. He was a life member of the
AMA, the American Motorcycle Association and lived his faith for over 40 years
at the Elburn Community Congregational Church.
Norm never went into anything small. From showing cattle, working on the farm,
racing motorcycles to loving family and friends, Norm gave his all.
He is survived by his loving wife of over 50 years, Diane; three children: Larry
(Jeannie) Bergquist, Renee (Gary) Gardner and David Bergquist; Six
grandchildren: Lauren and Ava Bergquist, Carl and Amanda Gardner; Camarae and
David Bergquist; many nieces and nephews and a countryside full of friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Hilmer and Irene and three siblings:
Carl Bergquist, Al Bergquist and Alice Nickels.
A memorial service to celebrate his life will be Thursday, July 21 at 11 a.m.,
at the Elburn Community Congregational Church. Private family interment will
follow at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established in Norm’s name to benefit
his favorite charities. Checks may be made to the “Norman Bergquist Memorial”
and mailed in care of P.O. Box 66, Elburn, 60119. Tributes may also be forwarded
to the same address or on the web at www.conleycare.com.
Fellow Enduro Rider
Zero'd his last check today:
Always tough to notify
the enduro family that a long time member passed today. Norm Berquist lost
his battle to cancer today. Norm was an old school rider that loved the
tough stuff and brought up his son's David and Larry in the motorcycle family.
I had the great fortune of learning all kinds of cool little tips and tricks
from Norm as he ran gas for Larry all over the Midwest. Norm was the type
that would help anyone and everyone and many times helped the clubs when they
needed an extra check crew member. Norm will be missed by the enduro
community and our thoughts go out to his family.
As I get more details
about the arrangements I'll post them up.
Valley Trail Riders
Bark Buster and Weed Whacker Cancelled:
From D14 Chairman Bill
Unfortunate news from
Valley Trail Riders... After an awesome 6 year run of putting on the popular
Bark Buster Enduro, the club has decided to cancel this year's event. The club's
Weed Whacker Family Enduro is also off the schedule for 2016.
Due to some changes within the club, and manpower that is already spread thin,
the club will be focusing efforts on hosting quality events for the HS series
If you have an interest in giving back to the sport, please consider joining a
club or volunteering to work an event. It's the ONLY way we're able to run the
Muddobbers M/C Family
From the Club:
Wanted to let everyone
know how our June 25th Family Enduro is coming along.
This year for the first time we will run two completely different loops, the
first loop will 15 miles long, and it will be run at 12 mph and will end at
Bridge. The second Loop will go to the south and will be 17 to 18 miles long,
this loop will be run at 18mph.
For the riders from our Enduro last year, we have built 11 bridges over the
creeks that we a mess and a bottleneck will be not be a problem this year.

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.
