Registration for Cherokee National Enduro & Huntersville National Enduro have been delayed
While we are continuing to monitor the Covid-19 situation throughout the country we have decided to delay the registration for the Huntersville National Enduro in Huntersville, MN. Originally we had registration opening on May 13th. We have decided to follow suit with what we did for the Cherokee Registration. That will put the registration open date for the Minnesota National Enduro 2 weeks before the scheduled event. Registration will now open on June 3rd at 8pm EST. This will give us a better time frame to know if the event will be possible to run by then.
Thank you for the understanding of the situation at hand. We are hoping to be racing again very soon.

The AMA is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and restrictions on event gatherings. It is our hope that this event will be held as scheduled, but that could change. Watch for updates at www.americanmotorcyclist.com and on AMA social media channels.
Currently we’re working on several projects, a Gummy Tire test (around 12 or 13 tires) and a long haul Beta 300RR report. Test rider Ryan Koch is playing a large role in both stories, his forte is off-road with trials and hard enduro the caveats in his arsenal.
