2023 Enduro Race Information


ATTENTION: All YOUTH Race Free On Saturday!

The Paul Bunyan Forest Riders motorcycle club is hard at work cleaning trails for what’s shaping up to be an incredible race this year. For 2023 the Enduro is being held on the East side of Hwy 64. The event is a restart format, with resets between each test. The race start and camping is at the Stompin Grounds campground, just north of Akeley on Hwy 64. Look for the Blue Stompin Grounds sign, as well as ORANGE arrows. 

The Stompin Grounds will host a spaghetti feed Saturday night and a pancake breakfast Sunday morning, making sure everyone has a fully belly for the race! They’ll also have the full menu available Saturday night if you prefer something else. This year AGAIN the PBFR motorcycle club is happy to announce ALL YOUTH race for FREE in ALL the events on Saturday! I repeat, ALL KIDS race for FREE in ALL classes at the Saturday Enduros! District and AMA cards are still required, but this a great opportunity for our youth to give racing a try!

Our Adult Race Trail Boss is Curt Plzak, and our Youth Race Trail Boss is Colten Bondin. Please contact them if you’d like to help our club before and during this event.

PRE-REGISTRATION is optional, but RECOMMENDED for this event. Even though the Saturday youth races are free, you still will need to pre-register. Pre-registration for all classes will open at 6:00pm on Tuesday, August 1st and close at 6:00pm on Friday, August 11th. 




The schedule for the weekend is as follows:

Saturday, August 12th: Youth Enduro Classes

The 50cc Jr/Sr classes will run on “Lower Blue” across Highway 64 from the Martineau trailhead.  This race will be Hare Scramble style, using some of the public trail and opening up the 50cc section of the “special use” trail.

The 85cc 7-15, 65cc 7-11, and Girls classes will run an Enduro style race like last year. The start and finish will be at a remote location east of hwy 64, about a 10 minutes drive from the Stompin’ Grounds parking lot.  A map to the start and to optional gas will be in the envelope the riders receive with their race number and scorecard. Parents of the 65cc 7-11 and Girls classes may ride as sweepers – contact Colten or Clint Blondin at the starting line if you wish to ride.  85cc 7-15 riders are not allowed to have their parents ride with them.
