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.

District 17 Points are Updated:

Points

If there are any questions or issues with the points please contact Ben Bradford ASAP. 

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.

ISDE Recap:

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.

Cahokia Creek Dirt Riders Big Red Enduro Review:

This had to be one of the best Big Red's in a long time.  Most creeks were dry and the trail was so much fun.  If you missed it you missed some of the best single track of the year. 

Since it was old school score cards I don't have full results just the top three:

1st: Matt McDonald

2nd: Kyleer Vance

3rd: Jared Hall

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.  

REMINDER about scoring and protest period:

Again this season 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, which the protest period is 30 minutes after the results are posted, 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.

Also Note that the Natioanl Enduros have a 24 hour protest period, this is a national rule only.  Just because a local event uses LiveLaps or other electronic scoring doesn't mean this national rule applies.  Local event's still use the AMA 30minute protest period. 

General Info:

District 17 Riders:

Like to welcome Ben Bradford as the the new Enduro Director for 2019.  I have stepped down and will be helping Ben to transfer into the position. 

I will still be running MidwestEnduros.com and helping with LiveLaps scoring at the events.

I did miss the Sanction meeting yesterday but a few rules were passed.  One was about losing your scoring device and the penalty that was received.  It was changed from how it was proposed so I need to get the correct verbiage before posting.  But from what I'm hearing it made it more manual work for the scoring people now. 

The one that did pass with no working changes was: Riders must remain on or within 25 feet of the marked course.
