About the North American Enduro Tour
The North American Enduro Tour aims to provide world-class mountain bike Enduro events and develop the sport of Enduro mountain bike racing while combining unparalleled terrain at the best mountain bike locations in North America. In its third year of operations, the most well rounded riders competing in the series will be rewarded in a simple format that involves timed (descending) stages linked by transfer (climbing) stages that are not factored into the overall structure of results. This style of racing combines the excitement of downhill, the fitness of cross-country and camaraderie not before seen at mountain bike events in the past.
