St. John's Enduro Series 2020

2019 was the birth of SJES, an Enduro MTB race series which consisted of 3 events within St. John’s, NL. Our small team of just 2 organizers has grown since than and with our numbers of racers for our last event last season being up around 60 with 25 to 30 being under 19, we anticipate great growth for this upcoming season. We plan to have 3 events (dates to be confirmed very soon), 2 in St. Johns and 1 in Corner Brook. These races follow the Enduro format which consists of untimed transfer stages that lead to or from our race stages, and timed stages consisting mainly of downhill single track of varying difficulty. These transfer stage rides can be taken at your own pace but the overall event will have a time cap but ample time is given to allow riders to group up and transition together. This style of racing makes for a great day on the bike with competitive racing and group riding mixed together. Much like EWS, each event will have a podium with 1st 2nd and 3rd places but a points system keeps track of the race results allowing an overall series winner and podium finishers after event 3 in September.
SJES2020 is bound to be a great time as it was last year. We hope this reaches some of you who are looking to race on the east coast and would consider the trip. Registration will be open within the coming months and a formal post will be made when dates and locations are completely confirmed. You are officially invited to come race in SJES2020. follow @stjohnsenduroseries on instagram or find our Facebook page (website coming soon) with tag “SJES2020” .

NL is small’ish scene in volume but has always punched waaaay above its weight in skills and style.
I would def’ encourage anyone to get over there and do some riding and racing, you won’t be disappointed!

Aw man, now I’m all jazzed on the idea of more Newfoundland riding!! On my last ride there in July there was 20+ riders, cliffside singletrack, minke whales, trail dogs, parking lot beers and damn fine times!!!

Our races last year have showcased a lot of talent in the under 19 group which did not have the opportunity to race before to showcase those skills. We hope that these races can continue to encourage this and grow the scene,
