The California Enduro Series is thrilled to announce the 2024 race schedule with six exciting events including five returning favorites as well as a brand new venue.

The series is set to kick off in the Sierra Nevada foothills with the Georgetown Enduro, presented by MTB Experience and California Expeditions, in Georgetown on May 18. General registration for this event will open on February 25 (team registration opens February 23).

The following month, the series will head to the iconic Mount Shasta for the Mt Shasta Enduro on June 29. Presented by Mt Shasta Ski Park, this event will open general registration on March 3 (team registration opens March 1).

From there, we’re off to a venue that’s brand new to the series! The Dodge Ridge Enduro will take place at the Dodge Ridge Mountain Resort in Pinecrest on July 27. General registration is slated to open on March 10 (team registration opens March 8 ).

Northstar California Resort is set to present the fourth round of the 2024 season with its two-day race – the Northstar Enduro August 17-18 in Truckee. General registration opens for Northstar on May 5 (team registration opens 5/3).

Queen Stage

The Queen Stage returns for each race for this season. The racer in each category with the fastest time on this particular stage will get bonus points towards their overall ranking.

Stage Wins

Of course, winning a race and winning the overall are the goals, but we all like stage wins as well. For the 2024 season, the series will again be tracking stage wins, offering a bonus prize for the male and female amateur racer with the most stage wins at the end of the season.


eMTB categories will be available at the first five of 2024’s six events: Georgetown Enduro, Mt. Shasta Enduro, Dodge Ridge Enduro, Northstar Enduro, and China Peak Enduro. These four categories are: Open eMTB Men, Open eMTB Women, Sport eMTB Men, and Sport eMTB.
