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.
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 Goblin Pre-Entry update:
We have pre-entry ready to go. It will start Wednesday the 27th at 7:00pm Central and end April 9th at 10:00pm. You will need a LiveLaps participant account which is free. If you don't have one follow the link below to signup.
AMA and District Signups:
Please do the clubs a huge favor and renew your AMA and District Cards and get them in your hand before the first event. The clubs have enough things to work on and worry about so they don't need anymore paperwork to deal with after the event. Almost everything can be done online now so it's super easy. Don't be that rider holding up the line because you didn't take a few minutes now to get things done.
Grand Kankakee Trail Riders Sand Booger / Sand Goblin update:
Iíve been working with the club to get pre-entry going. They are working on a few details before we can start it. But we hope to have things going by the end of the week / first of next week if everything works out.
Flyers are ready:
District 14 Schedule Updates:
Good news the UP Sandstormers have decided to put on the Mini Moose Enduro on July 13th.
Bad news the Twin Bay Motorcycle club event on September 29th will not be on the D14 enduro schedule But it will stay on the MI Sprint Enduro series.
MI Sprint Enduros ISDE Qualifier Pre-Entry is open:
Sign up for Round 1 of the MI Sprint Enduro series which is also Round 2 of the AMA East Coast Qualifier series is now open.
All schedules are updated
Like to thank the crew from the Boarder Battle series for supporting the website. If you haven't checked out their series they have expanded this year to a 5 race series. They offer some great events and most aren't scheduled on enduros so it's easy to add to your schedule. Check out their website for all the details.
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.
We are looking for riders to help with LiveLaps and scoring at the D17 events. The goal is to have a handful or riders that can help when needed; not at every event but maybe a rotation of events. This way people can help if others can't make it and relieve people at signup and scoring so that I'm not the only one doing it. Or if I can't make an event LiveLaps can still be used. If you are interested in helping please let me know.
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 pointís chaser and want
the correct score / points.
