Riders Embrace Challenging Course in Duluth Hard Enduro

Updated: June 29, 2019 10:32 PM

For the second year in a row, Max Fierek's Duluth Hard Enduro brought riders from all over the country to compete in the unique race. The Enduro is a mountain style endurance bicycle race. Racers ride up and down hilly streets, over obstacles and ramps, and down sets of stairs.


This year the race course was on the city streets, becoming the first Enduro to take place in an urban setting in the United States.

"All the Midwest races are smaller, one day or less stages. I wanted something to challenge people. Something you have to reach for. Something a little more like an out West style race," said event coordinator and organizer Max Fierek.

Saturday's race took place between Lake Avenue and downtown Duluth. One hundred and fifty racers participated in day one of the event. Day two is Sunday, where they'll ride thirty miles between Spirit Mountain and Piedmont, and back.
