SOUTH FORK- Shady Burro Enduro in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Enduro Racers will be taking place in South Fork this weekend for their fourth annual motor dirt bike race in South Fork. Enduro Coordinator and Director Scott Bright and his team have spent countless hours planning with several agencies to ensure the safety of both the riders and the community of South Fork.
The race will take place on the south side of Highway 160 on Rio Grande National Forest roads Saturday and the north side of the road Sunday. Travelers in the area should expect a rise in traffic in the mornings from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. as racers head out to the trails and from around 4 p.m. until dark in the evenings on both Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 8, and 9.
The race is made to test the endurance of any rider regardless of age or ability. Participants will be riding the trails located north of town in the Rio Grande Forest between South Fork and Del Norte. Riders travel anywhere from 50 to 90 miles of trails per day and undergo rigorous skills tests throughout the race.
