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.

Fellow Enduro Rider Zero'd his last check:
Unfortunately we lost a Midwest Enduro legend yesterday morning to cancer; Duane "Dewey" Eller. Duane was a huge part of District 16 enduros and the Madison Motorcycle Club for as long as a I can remember. Dewey was not only one of the top riders for years but he was a one of the nicest guys at the races and had the best stories. If you ever had the pleasure of attending the old Black River Falls, WI enduro riders meeting given by Dewey you know what a character he was. Dewey was also a never quit old school rider that we don't see a ton of anymore. As a kid I watched him with a broke bike at the gas stops but would always figure out a way to fix it, then keep racing and usually win. Seeing him do that along with the other "old school" riders stuck with me and definitely made me a better rider. Sure going to miss Dewey's smiles and stories!!
If I get visitation / funeral information I'll post it up.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

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.
As most know the USA won the overall this year, the Jr team was second, the Womens team won their division and the USA won the club team overall. But in case anyone didn't know we had 4 riders from the Midwest scene that went to the ISDE this year. The 4 that went are listed below with their finishes. Very cool to see the Midwest represented so well. Huge congrats to all of them!!
Anthony Krivi: Injured and had to retire on day 3. He was riding great and sucks to hear he was hurt as I know he put a ton of effort into this event.
Nathan Ferderer: Gold
Tanner Whipple: Gold
Tyler Vore: Gold

Fellow Enduro Rider Zero'd his last check:
Received some very sad news this morning about Steve Vollmar. Steve passed yesterday from injuries sustained at an event. Steve and his family were long time enduro and off road riders and Steve was one of the most friendliest and happiest person I've met (his whole family is the same way). Glad to have gotten to know Steve and his son Race over the years and will miss seeing and talking to him at events. Prayers to his family and RIP Steve.
If I get funeral information or any donation information I'll post it up for eveyone.
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.
Collier RV Site Sponsor:
Like to welcome Collier RV as a site sponsor. They rent out RV's, both tow behind and drivable so the next time you want to camp at the races, dual sport, or trail ride give them a call. Also let them know you appreciate them supporting the site.
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.
