ON ROAD AND OFF ROAD ENDURO
Enduro bikes are very similar to motocross but have lights and number plates because they have to be road legal, and have softer suspension to cope with much rougher and variable terrain.
Most AMA enduro events are ‘short course’ enduros and are often referred to as ‘Hare and Hound’ or ‘XC – Cross Country’. Terrain is usually mixed and can include bush tracks, forest trailes and a range of surfaces from sand through to solid rock. They offer good value to the rider as they give plenty of riding time.
Timecard Enduro’s is a high impact activity, where participants try to keep to a set average speed schedule. You have to do a certain amount of laps, some of which you will be timed through, and you'll also get penalty points if you fall behind. Events last from several hours to a full day.
