Enduro racing started gaining momentum about three years ago in Duluth.
"It's kind of a neat aspect in bike racing where there's a net loss in altitude, but it's not a downhill race, there's a lot of peddling involved," Ross Fraboni, Ski Hut's service mechanic, said.
There's a wide variety of bikes used in this style of racing and a range of skill sets.
"Every Enduro we get between 60-100 racers and it just depends on the course," Fraboni said.
Six races make up the Enduro Series every summer and they are free with a COGGS membership.
"Each week you're timed at your special stages. You have these little segments that you have to go fast in, you're timed in, and you're expected to show up on time, otherwise you lose time," Fraboni said. "Then after those days you get points allotted to you depending on where you finish and throughout the six races, the person with the most points wins."
This event is only growing in popularity.
"We're starting to see people come up from the Twin Cities, from Michigan. It's turning into a pretty big event," Fraboni said.
The next Enduro Series race will take place in Lester Park, next Wednesday.
