Never Ridden A National Enduro?
If you've never ridden an AMA Enduro, you may be in for a handful.
These Enduro's usually cover upwards of 60+ Miles!
Here's how an Enduro is Organized
If Competing in an Enduro, Some Clubs Will Mandate A Spark Arrestor, So be sure to review each affiliated club's rules before you haul off to a specific Enduro. Or, Just have a spark arrestor on hand for clubs which require it.
To be competitive, you'll be best off by beginning with a motorcycle originally designed as an off-road bike, or by transforming a dirt bike originally designed as a motocross bike into a woods bike with the addition of: Engine Guards, Radiator Guards and Hand Guards as discussed in our off-road setup article which will help protect the bike and the rider from the off road elements that you'll encounter in an enduro.
The AMA Enduro series has been drawing participants since the American Motorcyclist Association started the championship in 1924. If you've never ridden an Enduro, they are not a race, but more so a timed event where rows leave on a "Key Time" plus their minute, and riders are electronically scored by Transponder. The National Enduro series can present any rider with challenges and special tests that will uncover anyone's true fitness and skill levels, as well as test the mechanical soundness, integrity and reliability of a riders machine over a course that is generally 2 laps with laps often in excess of 30 miles with NO "Sighting Lap".
What's even more intriguing is that an Enduro course is laid out over distance and in a way that you rarely (if ever) see the same trail more than twice and often offers incredibly challenging terrain for the Amateurs, as well as the Pro's including Russell Bobbitt and Charlie Mullins whom are often present and always a threat. Furthermore, competing in an event on the National Enduro Series allows even the most novice amateur to ride the same terrain as the Pro's.
For those looking for an off-road challenge covering distance and all types of terrain from flat land to nearly impossible climbs and descents and elevation changes strewn with rocks, trees and mud, be sure to hit up one of these National Enduro's covering the best terrain there is to ride a dirt bike on, and put on by a company that knows their way around the woods and is none other than Moose Racing.
