What is Extreme North Dakota Racing?

North Dakota is becoming an extreme sports hotspot thanks to a combination of the rugged terrain and weather. Due to that, Extreme North Dakota Racing was spawned to provide the most extreme races for North Dakotans and others around the Tri-state area. For example, their most recent races involved Fatbike only races on a 15 to 20 mile stretch of snowy terrain. That race even had participants riding over the icy Red River.

Another recent race had contestants running throughout the Sheyenne National Grasslands. There was a multitude of lengths with the lowest being a 25K and the longest being a 100K race. Still, Extreme North Dakota Racing considered that a warm-up. Extreme North Dakota Racing has cultivated a culture of extreme sports that has stretched into Minnesota and South Dakota as well.
