FW: Patrick Koether Memorial Sportsmanship Award

The following is a press release from NEPG…

Patrick Koether was an amazing ambassador for the motorcycle community, who had a love for Enduro Racing and also had a large hand in lifting Rekluse Motorsports into the huge success that they are now. He took great pride in the Rekluse brand and wanted to see it succeed.

Patrick enjoyed helping out a fellow racer or enthusiast. He would put anyone else’s needs before his own and was always there to help anyone in need. The sportsmanship that Patrick displayed throughout his whole life was remarkable.

After Patrick lost his battle with cancer earlier this year, the NEPG, Rekluse Motorsports, along with Patrick’s family wanted to create a special award in Patrick’s honor. For 2020 the NEPG will be accepting nominations and selecting a National Enduro Series rider or enduro enthusiast that has exhibited great sportsmanship for the 2020 Patrick Koether Memorial Sportsmanship award.

We would like for you to submit nominations of a rider or enduro enthusiast of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series that go above and beyond to show the same sportsmanship that Patrick displayed. Someone that is always willing to help out another rider, club member or anyone involved with the series. Someone that is helpful to all, uplifts others and that stands out at the races as a great ambassador of the sport.

Please send your nominations to along with a brief description as to why they should be chosen. A winner will be selected by the NEPG and will be announced after the final round of the Season in Turkey, TX.
