This will be My first enduro, or race for that matter. If all goes well this week, I will be raing it this sunday in Mass. Any tips for a rookie? I will be entering in the B class.

Yes, You have the opportunity to pass the most people at the beginning of the race, use that time wisely.

Be sure your bike is thoroughly warmed up prior to the race. If it is dead engine start, do all your TDC stuff just prior to the start. This way, you just hop on the bike, kick and go. No screwing w/ your compression lever.

Don't go in wanting to kick everybody's ass, it will be more enjoyable this way.

I found out that I will be racing C class if I go. You have to earn a certain amount of points or sredits to move up a class. No problem, I need to learn the timing thing and checkpionts, route sheets and all that other stuff anyways. The only thing that sucks is that it is a shorter event :)
