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.

Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin / Sand Booger Review:

What a great two day event.  The club had record turn out for both events with over 300 riders each day.  Couldn't ask for better weather or better trails, well maybe a couple extra OB's:)  If you didn't come you missed out and just about a perfect season opener. 

Huge thanks to the club and all their landowners for putting on two great days of fun.

Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin / Sand Booger are a go:

Weather is going to be great, I'm sure the club did another awesome job with the trail, and most all of us are geeked for the enduro season to kick off.  Hope to see everyone there this weekend.

Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Goblin / Sand Booger Update:

--Course looks awesome, we did mileage last weekend and have 5 sections: 13mi, 6.5mi, 3.5mi, 11mi, 9 mi.
--Some of it is fast and flowing and a blast to ride but the there is a few tight spots that will remind you what an enduro is all about.
--As of right now the weather forecast for race weekend looks amazing.
--Just a reminder that pre-registration closes on Monday. Save your self time and money and sign up ahead of time!

Will be doing mileage on the family enduro this weekend and will update on that later.

--This year we will have five test sections ran in restart format with gas at the pits.
--We will be doing mileage this weekend to see how everything comes together, I do know that section # 1 will be over 12 miles long! So I hope you stayed in shape this winter....
--Please remember that pre-entry is online only and to help speed up sign up make sure to have all your district and AMA stuff current.

ACES Enduro in Chillicothe, OH Info:

The Appalachian Championship Enduro Series will kick off the first round of competition this Sunday, March 13, in Londonderry, Ohio. The Art Mitchell Memorial Enduro is hosted by the Chillicothe Enduro Riders Association.

"The trail will consist of approximately 65 ground miles," said Joe Uhrig, President of CERA. "We've been working hard for the last few months to cut trail. The wet weather has made it difficult, but we are hoping for good weather leading up to the race. A lot of our trail drains very well with the clay and rock that is present. 

"There will be our normal amount of tight, technical single-track and some sections with more open flowing trail as well. Bring your brain, and mount some fresh knobbies. This is a real timekeeping enduro," Uhrig said.

"We are excited to kick off the 2016 enduro season with a classic time-keeper event like the Art Mitchell Memorial Enduro," said Kory Young, president of ACES. "The CERA guys do a great job of laying out a ton of trail, and I'm positive that every rider will get their money's worth on this classic enduro run. I'm looking forward to getting the Husky out on their trails!"

General FYI about scoring and protest period:

This season I've received more than the usual amount of communications about a riders score being wrong long after the event is over.  While most cases the scores did have issues it is long past the protest period that is held at the event.  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, not bail to get home early and then call, txt, email two days later that you score was wrong and it should be fixed.  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 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.

District 17 Rider Survey:

Thanks to the riders that have been filling this out.  Nice to get feedback and see where things can improve.  For those that haven't filled it out it's still open and always good to get more feedback. 

As I stated earlier I'm looking for ways to improve the series.  I hope to share this info with clubs to create a better series and get the rider turnouts back up.  I went ahead and created a quick survey hoping this was an easier way for people to provide thoughts.  It shouldn't take long so please run through it.
