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.
New Products of the Month:
Got a little behind this month between scoring the RevLimiter in TX, racing and helping score the Sand Goblin, and then racing Round 2 of the National Enduro. But hey it's still April right so I still got April's products of the month posted. Click on the Products of the Month icon for April Products.
Michigan Sprint Enduro Season Opener:
The MSE crew has their season opener this weekend in Battle Creek MI. Check out their website and Facebook page for info and videos of the layout. Looks like it will be another great weekend.
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Booger / Goblin Results:
The club would like to thank all the riders that came out this weekend. For the Sand Booger there was close to 400 riders, the Sand Goblin right around 300.
Sand Goblin Test 5 Note: Some riders missed the trail and ended up riding part of the trail again and they went through the OB twice. The OB was an OB, it does show a timestamp on LiveLaps but the time was not counted. At the top of the page the OB's are in Red with a line through them and the scores are in red with a red circle next to them. This means the OB or Check was "Thrown out" and not counted towards your score. If you think you have extra time at the end check it's because you rode part of the trail twice so it caused you to be later then if you hadn't rode the trail twice.
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin Update:
Note even though pre-entry is closed you can still sign up the day of the event. Get there early as I'm sure there will be a line at signup.
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin Update:

AMA and District Sign ups Reminder:
Get them now so the clubs don't have to deal with the added paperwork. The clubs have enough to worry about and shouldn't have to worry about getting you signed up at the event.
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin Reminder:
The club will be using LiveLaps and the "puck" style transponders. Please remember to bring your puck to sign up so it can be programmed. There will be some available at signup for purchase but we are hoping everyone can bring their own.
Also if you didn't pre-enter there is still time, signup closes Wednesday night. If you don't pre-enter please make sure to have a LiveLaps account to make signup go quicker. Don't be that rider holding up the line!
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Booger Update:
Received this update from the club on how they are going to run the day for X riders:
The 2021 Sand Booger Family enduro series is going to run a little different this year. To start with the X riders will be starting at 10am with the first 30 numbers set aside for the X riders. This is being done to let the X riders ride without getting in the way of the point paying classes. This will also give them an early ride and should be done by noon (12:00) You will get a score card that will be posted after the event to compare your scores with other riders. The first rider will be starting at 10:01 for the first loop then 10:31 for the second loop and 11:00 for the third loop.
There will be an A+ class that will also start at 10am for the 2-3 year olds. The course will be a short course out in the open that will get them excited to ride. We would like to have the parents to oversee there kids please. This class will will run for ½ hour.
The point paying classes will start at 11:30 running 3 loops as well.
The signup line will open at 7am and we would like it if the line would stay spread out to allow others in line some space.
The local 4H will have food available during the day.
Missouri Mudders Leadbelt Sprint Enduro Info:
This year the club will be putting on a Sprint Enduro. D17 Enduro Director passed along this information from the club:
We plan to have two hour
windows for riders to get their tests done. BJE C can score both loops
simultaneously and we will have riders leaving every 20 seconds. The rider must
start their last test before the test closes.
Moto Family in need of Prayers and Support:
Most of the Moto Family knows the Nees Family, Chris and TJ, have raced D17 HS and Enduros for years along with other events all over the Midwest. They travel as a family, Kris, Ginny, TJ, Teagan, Taryn and are always camping out and helping at the races as much as they can. Their daughter Teagan, has been diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. Teagan has started chemotherapy and has to travel to Peoria for each treatment.
If you can help support the Nees family please follow the link below. All proceeds wiill go to the Nees family. I know some of the races will also have donation jars available and if I hear of any other ways to help support the family I'll post them up.
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.
