About the NEPG National Enduro Series

The National Enduro Series was established in the early 1960s as a way to showcase the best enduro riders in the nation. Enduro competitions had been held since the late 1920s, but only on a local or regional level. Through the national competition, riders of all skill levels could convene in one spot to earn a coveted national title. Today, the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series continues this tradition and highlights the top enduro riders through long-distance trails over tough, technical terrain.

Enduros are the oldest form of off-road motorcycle competition in the USA. Enduros can trace their beginnings back to 1920 (and perhaps even earlier), and it is still the premier off-road motorcycle competition around the world today. The sport has evolved several times over the years, and the newest evolution was designed to meet the needs of today’s motorcyclists. The National Enduro Promotions Group (NEPG) was formed by a group of enduro enthusiasts to assist the AMA in promotion and management of the AMA National Enduro Series. Its objective is to work with the riders, clubs and sponsors to raise the level of participation and awareness for enduro competition to make sure that the oldest form of off-road competition will remain strong and viable well into the future.
