Enduro racing continues to spread like wildfire across the Western USA–and the world, for that matter. The combination of beautiful locations, rowdy race stages, and a jam-packed weekend of riding and partying has proven to be a winning formula in the eyes of casual and serious racers alike.
Having lived and ridden my mountain bike in Montana, I can personally verify that the rugged terrain, formidable mountains, and remote locales found in one of the wildest states in the union will make this one heck of a series!
Here are the deets on the individual series stops, courtesy of the Montana Bicycle Guild:
