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.

CHANGES TO THE 2020 MICHIGAN SPRINT ENDURO SERIES......

No Youth Program- unfortunately the numbers we have average over 2 years for the youth program has been too low to continue. Riders on Super Minis will be allowed to race the Schoolboy Class in the afternoon.

With No Youth Program the Big Bikeís will start at 10am instead of 11am. This will help finish the program sooner and get riders home sooner on Sunday Evenings.

40+C class has been added- the 30+C class was huge this year and by adding a 40+C will help break that up a bit.

60+ class has been added- there has been requests for it and the numbers show it should be a legitimate size class.

Vintage Class has been added- Requests for a vintage class have been made and we have put together 1 and only 1 vintage class. You will be required to have 2 of the following 3 on your bike; air cooled motor, drum brakes, and Dual shocks.

Worker Points will no longer be an average of finishes. Worker points will now be an equivalent of your highest finish for the season.

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. 

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 pointís chaser and want the correct score / points.
