The North American Enduro Tour (NAET) is excited to announce it is back for the 2014 race season! This will be the fourth year the NAET will unite the best North American Enduro events into a single world-class tour. From the famous loam of the Pacific Northwest, to the big mountains of Colorado, Utah and Canada, and now looking to add the root covered and rocky technical terrain of the East Coast, the NAET is looking forward to another year of pushing the discipline of Enduro mountain bike racing to new heights.
For the 2014 season the NAET is looking to grow to ten events, offering more opportunities for athletes to race at a high level. An athlete’s best seven races will count towards overall tour points with four of the races being mandatory for overall standings. This year’s tour will include the SRAM Canadian Open Enduro at Crankworx Whistler and the Specialized Enduro at the Colorado Freeride Festival, two events from the Oregon Enduro Series, two events from the Big Mountain Enduro series, and one event from The Enduro Cup.
With interest in Enduro Racing growing across the continent, the NAET would like to add up to three additional events to the 2014 schedule.
