The New England Trail Rider Association (NETRA) was formed in the early 1970’s for the purpose of promoting off-road trail riding in the New England area. The sport was in its infancy, and in cooperation with New England Trail Rider (now Trail Rider) Magazine, NETRA focused on identifying and communicating places to ride, bike set-up tips, and riding techniques suitable for the tough New England terrain.
A couple of years later NETRA entered the competition arena when we inherited the New England Enduro series from the New England Sports Committee (NESC) organization. NETRA has produced some top national enduro and ISDE riders like Don Cutler, George Peck, and Kevin Hines. In 1982 the NETRA Hare Scrambles series was born, and over time this series has become home to NETRA’s most well-attended events. This series has also produced some renowned national racers such as Tom Norton and Nate Kanney. NETRA believes in developing tomorrow’s riders, and the Junior Enduro and Pee Wee series provide an opportunity for kids to have fun and improve their riding skills.
