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.

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 Enduro Points / Jacket / Photo List Updated:
If you are a class winner I need a picture of you. I've updated the points list to show who I have and don't have a picture for. The pictures need to be as high resolution as possible. I will start searching for some of people and I have ones of last year if you are a repeat winner but I always like to get one from the riders of ones they want on thier plaque. You can work with Capture Me Photography (link on the left side), many times they have great photos of riders.
These are the final points and the award winners. Please double check your sizes and if something needs to be updated please let me know ASAP.
Note: If you see a (TO) next to a result that is your throw out race.

2015 District 17 Schedule:
This will be the schedule for 2015:
District 17 Clubs & Riders FYI:
There were two rule change proposals for the 2015 season and both of them passed for 2015.
1: Combine 200B and 250B into one class. There just isn't enough participation in either class to justify them anymore. This will also mirror the A class that is combined 200A and 250A
2: Split the Super Senior class into A and B. There has been an increase in rider count in this class and it justify's the split.
District 14 Enduro Riders:
Here is a link to the 2014 award winners: Winners

Rich Lafferty Riding School April 2015 Update:
Got this from Shawn Collins:
Class dates will be April 11th and 12th. And 9 spots of the 15 avaliable are already spoken for.
I am proud to offer this opportunity for riders in the midwest. I received permission to hold a Rich Lafferty Riding School in April 2015 at the Muddobbers Club at the Red Bridge In Matthews Indiana. .. The class is $325 for 2 days and will be taught by Rich himself. We only have 7 spots left out of 15 but I am waiting to see if Rich will except more than 15. 3 riders who have signed up are women . KIDS are also allowed as is any skill level. Rich is pumped up as he has never done a class in this area. Riders can call me at 419 203 9877 For info and payment options . Thanks Shawne Collins

Fellow Enduro Rider Zero'd his last check:
Very sad to announce that Bill Maxey passed this morning at the age of 89. Bill Maxey was one of the founders of District 17 and the Forest City Riders MC. Many of the current enduro rules (not only for district but for AMA) Bill was involved in and he was very active in the District up until a few years ago. For those that don't know Bill he was a true old school enduro rider and tough as nails along with being one of the top riders in the midwest.

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.
