BC Enduro Series

The BC Enduro series is a 6-race series with stops at some of the best riding spots in British Columbia, including the Sunshine Coast, Rossland, and Vernon, BC. Riders earn points for each race, and series racers need to compete in 5 out of the 6 races to be considered for the final podium. Like many of the race series on this list, racers can choose to compete in all or just one of the races in the series.

The BC Enduro race shares its two final stops with the KR Enduro Series, which is legit in its own right with stops in Kananaskis (AB), Fernie, and Canmore (AB).

The Big Mountain Enduro has only been around for a few years but it’s already become the premier enduro series in the US. This year’s series will be held exclusively in Colorado with stops at Keystone, Winter Park, Crested Butte, and Aspen/Snowmass. The Crested Butte race will be a part of the Enduro World Series, which will draw even more riders to this popular race series.

California Enduro Series

The California Enduro Series got an early start on May 9 near Lake Tahoe with the Battle Born Enduro, which sold out in 3 days flat. Not only that, all the upcoming events are sold out for this year except the final race, the Kamikaze Games Enduro at Mammoth Mountain. If you missed sign-ups this year, be sure to register early for next year!
