Shan Moore’s Favorite National Enduro Photographs Of 2017

A look back at the best of last year’s NEPG National Enduro Series

I was planning to bring you coverage this week of the Cajun Classic National Enduro from Forest Hill, Louisiana, but the event was canceled due to flooding. So to make sure everyone gets his and her enduro fixes, I rummaged through my archives to find what I thought were my best enduro images from 2017. Enjoy!

Steward Baylor kicked off the 2017 season with a victory in his home state of South Carolina, where he topped Kailub Russell and Thad Duvall. The season turned out to be a year-long back-and-forth battle for the title between Duvall and Baylor, who went on to win the championship chase.Shan Moore
Kailub Russell, the 2015 series champ, dropped out of national enduro competition to concentrate on the GNCC series and to prepare for the 2017 ISDE in France.Shan Moore
