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.

Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin Enduro update:
Received this from the club today:
Update for the 2020 Grand Kankakee Trail Riders events for April 18-19. The club has been busy in the woods and the trails are coming together. Plans as of today are to run the event. We are not going to have a pre-entry just in case we do have to cancel and we do not want to tie up entry fees.
As things are changing very fast on what is allowed and what is not keep checking in for the latest info.
Thank you from the GKTR club and be safe out there.
Schedules are updated.
Sorry been slacking on the getting the schedules page updated. Meant to do it this week and just got behind on things. Schedules are on this page just have to scroll down a little. Will try to get them up next week.
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin Enduro update:
Spoke a little to the club tonight and they are working on getting pre-entry going for the Sand Goblin. LiveLaps will be used again this year with the puck style transponders.
They are also working on an updated flyer. As soon as I get that I'll get it posted.
AMA and District Memberships:
Well you should have them already but if not please get them ahead of the first race. The club has enough work to do just getting the trail ready. They don't need the extra paperwork of AMA and District forms to send in.
Megatraxs Off-road Night Info:
On 2/15 Megatraxs will be having an "off-road" night. They plan to build an EX style course along with having a "trail ride" type setup. I think this will be from 6-9pm. More info will be posted on their website soon. Be a good time to get some seat time before the races start in March.
Iowan Hard Enduro Information:
That's right there is a Hard Enduro coming to IA. The date is set for April 4th and 5th. Pre-Entry opens up 2/8/20 at 7pm.

IERA Membership update:
IERA has implemented an online registration process for the 2020 season. This includes hare scrambles, enduros, and the new GP series. In 2020 we will also use a new scoring system, Moto Tally, to score all IERA hosted hare scrambles. For both hare scrambles and enduros we'll use the Moto Tally system to track and display points through the same IERA website.
District 17 Banquet and Membership Update:
Banquet is Feb 1st in Ottawa, IL. Membership page is up, get signed up now!
District 16 Series Update:
I attended the D16 sanction meeting two weekends ago and the meeting went well from everyone's perspective. While a stand alone Enduro series still will not happen for 2020 they do have a few Sprint Enduros scheduled within their new Off Road Series. There is also a chance of a Sprint Style event that will have a 20-25 mile loop where riders would rider 2-3 laps and would use the Sprint Style scoring (would be similar to the Leaf River event for those that have raced that in the past).
They also reviewed the out of state events rule and revised the rule to where the Board can vote on out of state events. For the 2020 season the Forest City Riders will be on the schedule with a Sprint Enduro and Hare Scramble.
District 16 Enduro Series Zeroed it's last check this year:
I received noticed that D16 has canceled the enduro series for 2020. They will have an Off Road Series that combines Hare Scramble, GP, and Enduro into one series. The kicker is all the races have to be within D16 boundaries. Since there are currently no enduros within D16 boundaries at this time the Off Road Series will only consist of HS and GP for 2020.
Also for the D16 Hare Scramble riders that have enjoyed the Forest City Rider Hare Scramble in Byron, IL we are no longer allowed to be a part of the series. Since our race is outside the D16 boundaries we can't be a part of the series for 2020 with their new rule even though the club has supported D16 for over 25 years. We hope that D16 riders will still come and enjoy our events even if we are not on D16 schedule next year.
General FYI about scoring and protest period:
This season many of the clubs and directors from the Midwest Enduro
series have received more than the usual amount of communications
about a riders score being wrong long after the event and protest period is
over. 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, your class is correct, etc. not bail to get home early and then
call, txt, email that night or two days later that you score was wrong and it should be fixed;
classes can be fixed but that should be done before you leave the event.
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 clubs and 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.
