Yeps, we have a championship series and some separate races upcoming spring/summer. More info can be found from our website at Trek Enduro Series 2013 Unfortunately the site is at the moment only in Finnish language, but "in English" page is also upcoming soon.
But a short summary, 5 events in the official championship series, plus couple smaller separate races, dates and locations following:
4.5. Warm up -race, Calpis, Hämeenlinna
25.-26.5. SM1 Messilä, Lahti
15.-16.6. SM2 Laajavuori, Jyväskylä
5.-6.7. SM3 Åre, Sweden
1-2 separate smaller races in July/August
10.-11.8. SM4 Ounasvaara, Rovaniemi
14.-15.9. SM5 Location yet to be decided(couple of strong options available).
Official races are mostly lift asssisted, with possibly some transit stages that require pedaling. Weekend usually consists of Saturday practice and race on Sunday, starting around 11.00 while lifts start at 09.00 so usually race day practice available too...
We have plans to try this season some event as two day race or Saturday prologue or similar, idea anyway to have a bit more "event" fiiling, rather than just-a-race. Not yet locked where this will be tested or if tested at all, but more info will follow when things clear up.
If more questions, you can ask here or PM me...
In 2013 we will organize 5 Epic Enduro Weekends under the name 'The Blast'
The racing isn't super serious, it is more about enjoying awesome riding with old and new friends. The trails however are top notch, as we chose some of the best places to ride in Europe.
You will be staying together with all riders in a nice accommodation. Meals are included, and with most events you have one uplift a day, with the additional +- 1000hm of pedal powered climbing.
Dates and locations for 2013 are:
The Blast #1 28th - 31st March 2013 Ardennes Belgium (sold out)
The Blast #2 23rd – 26th May 2013 Aosta Valley Italy
The Blast #3 20th – 23rd June 2013 Vosges France (sold out)
The Blast #4 18th – 21th July 2013 Koroska, Slovenia
The Blast #5 24th – 27th October 2013 Liguria Italy

The Pisgah Enduro is a go. Permits, timing, and all that jazz.
A well established promoter in the area is putting it on.
And ignore that date.... it's June 15th.
Pisgah Enduro | Old Fort, North Carolina 28762 | Saturday, June 22, 2013
Here's a recently announced 3 race series in Utah:
Ashland is sick-
This year will be different from years passed, so be ready for A LOT of riding in one day.. Tons of super fast single track. Mostly just a 5-7% descent where a little pedaling makes a big difference.
The Moab enduro on May 3-4 is on Mag 7, which is a really fun area. It doesn't look too strenuous, and is at a lower elevation than most enduros in CO/UT, so it would be a great one for someone to get their feet wet.

Question... Does anyone know of any enduro or Super D races in Arizona? I've done a bit of research but haven't found much...
You might ask in the AZ forum, it gets a lot more traffic and they tend to be a super helpful bunch. The only one I know of is a social/group ride that one guy puts together every year in Flagstaff. Follow the route, time yourself at each timed section and compare times at the end.
I'm sure there'll be others if not already, then soon.

KRob, I'm planning on heading out to the race. I would like to pre-ride the course next weekend. Is there a local bike shop that might be able to give directions?
Everything will be ribboned by then but no arrows. Shoot me a pm, I'd be happy to show you around, or at least get you pointed in the right direction.
