Hard enduros and extreme off-road racing have gained in popularity over the past few years, and many of the top factory teams have switched their efforts from the traditional World Enduro format to the many hard enduro races that have cropped up around the world. In fact, Graham Jarvis, the king of extreme racing, will be focusing exclusively on hard enduros in 2019.

In 2018, Cody Webb, Mario Roman, Wade Young, and Graham Jarvis stood out as the top extreme off-roaders on the planet, as the four riders combined to win the majority of the extreme racing events last year. The 2019 season should see more of the same, as the extreme calendar kicks off in late January.

Most of us don't have the means to travel to these events to watch them firsthand, but you can keep up with all the extreme racing action in 2019 right here at dirtrider.com, as we bring you coverage from each round.

Kenda RevLimiter
March 2–3, 2019
Decatur, Texas

The Kenda RevLimiter is a relatively new race that is held in central Texas near Decatur. FMF KTM’s Cody Webb won the event in 2018, beating out Cory Graffunder, Jordan Ashburn, and David Knight. Like the Tennessee Knockout, the RevLimiter is run in a knockout format and features three motos. Two races earlier in the day are used to whittle the field down to 30 riders, who will compete for 20 minutes on an extremely technical course that features several “elements” that are so difficult that even the best in the world have trouble negotiating them. These challenging sections create bottlenecks that the top riders must creatively navigate.

Last year, Webb lapped his way all the way up to third place and many riders were lapped several times during the final. It's a spectacular event for spectators, and the fans are able to easily make their way around the course to watch as the course circles around the pits.
