The Erzberg Enduro is well known throughout the off-road motorcycle community as being one of, if not THE MOST extreme motorcycle race in the world. The event encompasses three days of riding – two days of preliminaries that narrow the field from more than 1,800 entrants to just 500 for the main event: the Erzberg Rodeo. The Rodeo is a 25-mile course that 500 riders attempt to complete within a four-hour time limit. On June 23, 500 racers started the Rodeo and only nine crossed the finish line. Mike Sigety, a seven-time A Class champion in the AMA National Enduro Series was one of the 500 men lined up in the 10 waves of 50 racers at the start line.
