The National Ultra Endurance Series (NUE) is an ultra-endurance mountain bike race series in the United States. The number of races has varied from year to year, however, in 2015 and most recent year there have been 14 races in the series distributed around the USA. Each of the races is approximately 100 miles (160 km) long and primarily off road. The title of series champion is awarded to the racer with the four best results in each of the following categories: Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Men’s Masters (age 50+), and Single speed. Any ties are broken by the placing results in the final race of the series.[1]
