Road Enduro

Road Enduro rider
Participating in an AMA Road Enduro is a fun way to layer an added dimension of challenge on top of a typical weekend ride.

A Road Enduro is a road riding event where riders are challenged to negotiate a preset course while maintaining a specific time schedule, where speed is not the determining factor. It’s a challenge that requires a high degree of strategy, as riders pass through a series of timed checkpoints and are scored on a points-lost basis, where “0” is the best score. There are different types of checkpoints where the minute of arrival will be recorded. A “Known Control” is a checkpoint whose location is known to all participants.
