The 2013 series will kick off Sunday, April 7th in Southern California with Robert Herber and Eric Carter's PCA Enduro event in Riverside, California.

The PCA Enduro will be a fun event for all ability levels to enjoy, consisting of three different timed stages and un-timed transfer stages (racers must arrive at the start of each stage by a specific time).

Consisting of four events showcasing the amazing diversity of California's terrain, the California Enduro Series offers something for everyone.
After the series debut in Riverside, the California Enduro Series will head north for its second stop on Saturday, April 27th for the VP / Kali EnduroFest at the Dirt Club in Los Olivos, California.
"Getting the CES off the ground with such a dedicated group has been very exciting and I look forward to it growing with more great people and events. The VP / KALI EnduroFest at the Dirt Club is going to be a great race for people to experience the fun and camaraderie that this format can provide." says Erik Saunders, VP / KALI EnduroFest Event Director.
The series then travels up into the Sierra mountains for the third stop on Sunday, June 29th at China Peak Mountain Resort.
"China Peak is relatively unknown to most mountain bikers, but with the amount of elevation, lift-access, and available terrain, it has the potential to host a killer enduro event. I'm really looking forward to putting this one on!" says Evan Turpen of the China Peak Mountain Resort.
The series then heads to the coast for the finals on October 12-13th in Santa Cruz, California.
"Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz is stoked to bring the Santa Cruz Super Enduro back to the Demo forest as a 2 day event with a larger more inclusive field. We are building on the success and momentum of the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival to create a fun atmosphere and a wicked event that riders will love! We are honored to be the season finale of the California Enduro Series and we'll put on a great celebration for our first year as part of the series." says Mark Davidson, Santa Cruz Super Enduro Event Director.
