About the 2009 AMA National Enduro Series:
Enduros are the oldest form of off-road motorcycle competition in the USA. Enduro’s 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 NEPG is the promotional partner of the AMA National Enduro Championship Series and will work with clubs to build awareness and increase ridership at Enduro’s. Our goal is to make sure that the oldest form of off-road competition will remain strong and viable well into the future.
