For 2013, there will be a lot of new races for the Enduro crowd in the USA. The California Enduro series was announced and will create a new series in California for Enduro riders. Given the quality terrain that California has to offer, we think they’ve got a great shot at delivering some really great races. Read the full release inside.

With the recent announcement of the Enduro World Series, the California Enduro Series provides another opportunity for racers looking to try their hand at enduro racing. Winter Park held an Enduro race last year during the Colorado Freeride Festival and that event was received well. Expect to see more of these races pick up as we’ve heard rumors of more Enduro events on the East Coast as well.

SANTA CRUZ, CA – December 12, 2012 – With the 2013 race season fast approaching, a dedicated group of riders, event promoters, and professionals have joined forces to create the California Enduro Series.

The California Enduro Series will host four major mountain bike enduro events in 2013 showcasing California’s best trails and venues. The series will bring a consistent, high-quality, and high-profile enduro racing experience to the state of California and give the riders, industry, and media a premier series to follow.

“Enduro racing is growing immensely worldwide and is set to explode. When I saw the lack of a major enduro race series here in California, I knew something had to be done and had to be done right,” says Evan Turpen, executive director of the California Enduro Series.

With this new series comes great responsibility. Luckily, the California Enduro Series is a for-riders, by-riders operation that has its finger on the pulse of enduro. The ultimate goal is to create world-class enduro events that everyone from pros to amateurs can enjoy and showcase the amazing locations that make California one of the best places to mountain bike on earth.

Slated for early Spring/Summer 2013, the official schedule will be released in January 2013.
