1. At each event all National classes must be run; additionally, there may not be an ATV class at an AMA National Enduro. At the promoter’s option, additional support classes may be run. If youth support classes are offered, they must be run separate from the Championship program. Youth events should run on the Saturday preceding the National Enduro.
2. National Enduro events will utilize the Start Control/Restart format. A restart format allows riders to ride into a check, wait for their number to flip, be scored and then motor on. Restart formats also use “transfer sections” to get riders from one “points taking” section to another. These are essentially “free time” sections in which there cannot be a check. (See Appendix)
3. National Enduros will be run as off-road course events. The off-road course definition means that if a public road is used to connect course sections, a special waiver/parade permit or the like, must be secured from the responsible law enforcement officials to allow the transfer of unlicensed bikes and riders from one section to another. No section of the course may be traversed more than twice during the event.
a. Bikes must have a US Forest Service approved spark arrestor.
b. Driver’s License, lights and registration are not required.

6. The 55+ A, 55+ B and Women “Elite” classes will ride the same course as the National “B” classes. The 60+, 65+ and Women Amateur classes will ride the same course as the “C” classes.
7. Riders that pre-enter an event will request their preferred starting row. The pre-entry software will give the rider the closest, later row to their preference as possible. Priority will be determined by the earliest on-line time stamp. (When signing up multiple Riders together the software finds the nearest, later row with the availability to accomodate the multiple riders) The reserved NE Pro1, NE Pro2, Women Elite rider numbers will be held, even if the NE Pro1, NE Pro2 Women Elite rider doesn’t pre-enter. There will be no refunds or transfer of pre-entries.
8. If an online registration goes over the maximum number of registrants allowed for that event, riders will still be able to sign up for that event and go on a waiting list. All riders that are on the waiting list will be assigned a row number one-hour before Key Time Sunday morning for that event. Waiting list riders will be assigned row numbers of those that registered for the event but did not show up at event registration. The software will RANDOMLY assign numbers tothe waiting list riders. This will NOT be a first come first serve basis.
9. A waiting list for a particular event will not be used unless the Maximum number of entries is reached for that particular event on the online Pre-entry registration, prior to the time the actual event registration opens on Saturday before the event. Events will have different number of maximum riders due to amountof parking, amount of riders the Forest Service limits, etc. In the absence of the waiting list, all riders that sign up at the actual event registration will be assigned the remaining open rows not previously assigned to another rider. If the maximum registrations is reached during the actual event registration, additional rows will beadded on the back to accommodate added participants.
10. Electronic transponder scoring will be used at National Enduros. Riders will need to purchase a transponder as this is how their score will be captured.
a. In the case that a transponder fails the official back up time will be utilized only for those riders whose transponder experienced failure.
b. Back up time will be set to the official check “key time” and be taken the instant the riders front wheel crosses the check signs.
c. Back up time will be considered official by event referee 30 minutes after results are posted.
11. National Enduros must have 6 test sections for NE Pro 1, NE Pro 2, AA and “A” class riders, 5 test sections for “B” class riders and 4 test sections for “C” class riders, unless the National Enduro Series referee decides to alter that program for reasons of weather or course length.
12. Emergency checks will be scored by total minutes, seconds and milliseconds, and are calculated from the top of a riders due minute. Scores will be tabulated by the actual number of minutes, seconds and milliseconds that a rider takes to complete each section. The time from each section will be added together for a total score.
13. NEPG supplied Mileage markers must be posted on the course at every even mile.
14. Rider registration will be from 3-7PM Saturday and 7-8:30AM Sunday
15. NE Pro1 entry fee will be $85.00. NE Pro2 entry fee will be $75.00. Women’s Elite entry fee will be $70.00.

One Spot per row 18-22 will be reserved for Women’s Elite Riders. One Spot per Row 21-32 will be reserved for NE Pro2 riders based on their 2018 overall result. Row 33-42 will be reserved for NE Pro1 riders based on their 2018 Overall result. Any rider that chooses to advance to the NE Pro1 class will start on row 43 and continue one per minute in order based on the earliest registration. In the case that an event is known to have more than the assigned reserved rows for NE Pro1, NE Pro2, and Women’s Elite NEPG will assign more reserved rows at the tail of each respected class line up. Ie: More than 5 Women’s Elite Riders; NEPG will assign more starting with row 23.
Beginning with the 2nd event and continuing through the rest of the series, the top 10 NE Pro1 riders overall from the previous round will be placed on rows based on their overall results from that round. The winner of the previous event will start on row 33 and the second place finisher on row 34 and continue in order one per row through row 42.
The riders that were not in the top 10 overall in the previous round but are in the top 15 overall in the current year series point standings will be lined up one per row starting on row 43 in order of their place in the series points. In the event that a pro rider that has a reserved row does not attend the next round each pro rider behind them will be moved up so that there are no empty rows in the pro rider line up.
Any riders that register in the pro class but were not in the top 10 overall in the previous round and are not in the top 15 in the current series point standings will be lined up one per row beginning with the first available row past those riders that are in the top 15 overall in series points.

If a rider registers in Pro2 but were not in the top 12 in the previous round will fill in on an open Pro Rider row.
Women’s Elite: Beginning with the 2nd event and continuing through the rest of the series, the top 5 Women’s Elite riders in the class from the previous round will be placed on rows based on their class finish from that round. The winner of the previous event will start on Row 18 and the second place finisher on row 19 and continue in order one per row through row 22. In the event that a Women’s Elite rider does not attend the next round every Women’s Elite rider will be moved up so that there is no empty rows in the Women’s Elite Line Up. In the event that a Women’s Elite rider registers for an event that was not in the top 5 in the previous round will fill in on an open Women’s Elite or Pro Row.

21. In the event a rider inadvertently misses a portion of the course during a test, the average of their remaining test times will be calculated and they will be given the test time of the rider officially finishing in that average position for the test in question in addition to receiving a 1 minute 30 second penalty.
Pro Purse Per Event:
1. National class points will be based on the following point’s schedule:
Finish / Points Finish / Points Finish / Points Finish / Points
1 - 30 6 - 15 11 - 10 16 - 5
2 - 25 7 - 14 12 - 9 17 - 4
3 - 21 8 - 13 13 - 8 18 - 3
4 - 18 9 - 12 14 - 7 19 - 2
5 - 16 10 - 11 15 - 6 20 - 1
Example: At a series event a rider may finish first in the 250cc class and third overall. He would receive 30 points for his 250cc class win and 21 points toward the National Championship.
2. To be eligible for NEPG series awards, a rider must compete in at least 4 less than of the total number of events. The series overall championship will count the riders scores from all rounds, the NE Pro 2 class championship will drop their lowest single score and all remaining class championships will drop their 2 lowest scores from the total number of events.
A restart format utilizes AMA Enduro rules with one small change. Typically, an Enduro consists of points taking sections that last anywhere from 4 to 12 miles. Most of the time there is an "in-check" at the beginning of that section. You can usually tell where it is going to be because there are anywhere from five to 25 riders parked out of eyesight just before the check waiting for their time so they can roll into the check at the beginning of their minute. A restart format would allow those riders to ride the extra tenth of a mile into the check, and wait for their number to flip be scored and then motor on.
Restart formats also use "transfer sections" to get you from one "points taking" section to another. These are essentially "free time" sections in which there cannot be a check.
If you took your route sheet from your last Enduro and changed the secret checks that were placed at the beginning of a points taking section to “start controls” you have the restart format. Random secret checks will not be used in a restart format, because the riders will be able to transfer from the previous emergency out check to the next start control without having to keep time.
Enduros have emergency checks coming out of the points taking sections, observation checks, and speed changes if needed to adjust for the terrain. All checks must be at the proper mileage according to the speed average you are running, clocks set accurate, 2.9-mile marker. Gas stops and gas availables must be placed a maximum of 33-miles apart. The minimum ground mileage is 55-miles for Pro and A class riders, B and C rider cut-offs must be used.
