Red Indicates Changes for 2017

The District 14 Enduro Series is comprised of a group of AMA chartered clubs and promoters engaged in the sponsorship and promotion of Enduros. It is dedicated to the betterment of the sport of enduro riding, and to providing the individual competitor with a quality, safe, challenging event. The following rules and guidelines will be used to govern enduro events in the District 14 Enduro Series for 2017.

b.        Required Equipment


a.      At sign-up, all machines must be equipped with operating headlight, taillight, horn, mirror, and valid license plate “where applicable”, and a USFS-approved spark arrestor muffler.


b.      All required equipment must remain intact during the entire event.


c.         Events, Fees, and Results


a.      As much as possible,series D14 Enduro events should not conflict with popular National Enduro dates.


b.      There will not be more than one Enduro sanction per week in District 14, except by consent of the Enduro Chairman.


c.      Any D14 Chartered club or promoter may apply for a seriesD14 Enduro sanction. Applications will be considered by the Enduro Chairman.


d.      Entry fee must be listed on any event advertisement.


e.      All series runs will have a 9:00am key time unless clearly indicated otherwise on the event flyer.


f.       The A 50+ class will ride the same course as the “A” classes. The 60+ and Women’s class will ride the same course as the “C” classes.


g.      All District 14 Enduro sanctioned events must run the full set of D14 Enduro classes, with the exception of National Enduros.


h.      At National Enduros that are also a D14 Enduro sanctioned event, D14 Enduro Series Members must enter a recognized D14 Enduro class. For the purpose calculating D14 Enduro series points, points will be given for the class ridden at the National event. The exception to this is if a rider is running the National Enduro Series for points in a class that is not supported by D14. In this particular case, we will move riders to the appropriate D14-recognized class for the purpose of calculating D14 Enduro Series points.


When riding a National Enduro, riders are responsible for ensuring that they ride the correct course length that is appropriate for their D14 class. E.g., Riding A 55+ at a National typically runs the “B” course. If the rider enters A 55+ at the National, but is running A 50+ in D14, they need to ride the “A” course at the National in order for their results to be transferred to the D14 A 50+ class correctly.


i.       For Restart format events, Emergency checks will be scored by total minutes and seconds, and calculated from the top of a riders due minute. Scores will be tabulated by the actual number of minutes and seconds that a rider is late to an emergency check. Example: if you are due on minute 20, and come in at 21:30, your score is 1 “Minute” and 30 “Seconds” not 1 “Point” and 60 “Emergency Points”.


j.       Row Assignments:


                                               i.     For all events, AA riders must ride on rows 21-40. One row position must be left available on rows 21-40 for the AA riders. No row positions will be reserved for specific riders.


                                              ii.     All promoting organizations are encouraged to provide a paid pre-entry system for all events. When there is a paid pre-entry system, a rider will be given the choice of requesting three rows in order of preference. For riders to request to be on the same row, their paid entries must be sent in together.


                                             iii.     All other starting positions, including those assigned at event sign up, will be assigned and reserved only if there is an entry fee paid for the row being assigned.


                                             iv.     The option of using the lottery system for row assignment is at the discretion of the event promoter.
