The 2011 IMXBones Endurance series kicked off on April 9 at the Idaho Falls Noise Park. The cold, wet conditions did little to dampen the enthusiasm of the 50 or so racers who braved muddy conditions in the parking lot and infield for what turned out to be a tremendous endurance race on a course in primo condition.

The Peewee class races took place on an improvised course that was short on length but not in excitement as a variety of two-stroke bikes, four-stroke bikes, bikes with training wheels and a couple of atv's dueled in the dirt. There was some skinny passing and fighting for position in the class and we see the beginnings of some decades-long rivalries. Salute to all of the riders in the Peewee class.
The entire IMX crew deserves a great deal of credit for setting up a heck of a course that was well marked and exceptionally fun to race and for putting on an event that drew so many participants despite the poor weather. We'll look forward to seeing everyone again at Family Fun Weekend on May 7th and 8th.
The 2011 IMXBones Endurance series Round 2 took place at the Idaho Falls Noise Park on May 14. The cold, wet conditions that plagued family fun weekend and Round 1 were replaced by cool overcast dry conditions and lots of DUST! All in all fine weather though.

The Peewee class races took place on another an improvised course that featured a layout that changed after the parade lap! That's the way to keep the little gromits honest. Salute to all of the riders in the Peewee class for an outstanding race and excellent displays of sportsmanship.
The entire IMX crew again deserves a great deal of credit for setting up a heck of a course that was again well marked (the occasional lost rider nonwithstanding) and exceptionally fun to race. We'll look forward to seeing everyone again at the team race June 18th.
