), and live results on monitors at the finish of every stage as well as live accumulated times at the base area. OES is proud to be part of the founding group of the North American Enduro Tour and associated with the creation of the film The Rise of Enduro
, the first feature documentary film about the sport of Enduro Mountain Bike Racing.
