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.

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.
- A/B riders start on test 1 @ 9AM (check closes 11 AM)
- C/Super short start on test 2 @ 9 AM (check closes 11 AM)
- we take a break at 11 AM and start the race again at 11:30 AM; this is where the riders swap tests
- this gives the trail resources team time to make course changes
- A/B riders start test 2 @ 11:30 AM (test closes 1:30 PM)
- C/Super short start test 1 @11:30 AM (test closes 1:30 PM)

We will be using sequential numbers on 2 different background shades (Long & Short course) to keep the riders herded to the correct test.

Assuming approximate test section length to be 6 miles:
- A/B riders ride each test 4 times = 48 miles
- C classes ride each test 3 times = 36 miles
- Supershort will ride each test 2 times = 24 miles

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.
