Enduro and Motocross is a form of off-road motorcycle racing, but you will also hear “enduro” used as an adjective to describe a certain trail, motorcycle, piece of mountain motorcycling equipment or clothing.
The race is held in off-road areas for long distances and several hours. It consists of many different obstacles and challenges.
The main type of Enduro event, and the format to which the World Enduro Championship is run, is a time-card Enduro, whereby a number of stages are raced in a time trial against the clock.
A custom bike is used in Enduro races and it is specialized for the nature of the sport, with the deep suspension of a motocross bike combined with the features required to make it legal for the public road portions of the course.
The world governing body for Enduro and Motocross is the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM).
The popularity of Enduro and Motocross varies widely by continent, country, region, and even by event type. Some popular events are loosely categorized as Enduro even though they fall into a category of off-road racing that is known as rally racing or rally raid.
