Absolutely. Rides to work most days it's not raining. Went on a 70 mile ride in Wayne National Forest on opening day last year and for a guy with over the boot gear he still held his own leading.

yes. It's an East vs. West situation. Which is always fun! In addition to that it is a qualifier for TKO. But the better part is it's gonna be everyone from the East and West battling it out!

No rule in off-road against jumping on a yellow but both riders received a warning and the 2020 rules for EnduroCross will be updated accordingly.

after riding an Alta I personally still think it needs a clutch. So much of our riding ability and styles come from being able to fan the clutch, rev up the engine for specific obstacles... or just to do a quick burn out/spin around on a tight trail. ... more »

Depends on the series. In Off-Road there is no homologation and the Open classes are left to allow as big of a bike as you'd want to race. So if you look at the individual Off-Road series Rules National Enduro - All “Open” classes are 96cc-Open National ... more »

Sprint Enduro's will work, as long as you have enough time between tests to get a quick charge in. GP's will work, as long as they are short enough races. The longevity is still what will hold the Alta back in off-road. Once they get there it'll be better. ... more »

In AMA Off-road it is eligible for non-displacement classes only. Pro, Vet, Senior, Open (as long as the class has no CC caps). It is NOT eligible for 250 classes. The question is what Enduro or HS are you going to race it at that is short enough?

I've been rocking 100% goggles and really like them. Especially with the Forecast Roll Off system that actually IS the lense. I also liked the Scott Goggles that you could adjust to your face, but I'm not sure if those exist anymore.
