Chesterton High School grad Tyler Vore (2014) has been selected to represent Team USA in the International Six Day Enduro in Vina del Mar, Chile.

The international motocross race will be held Nov. 11-17 with countries from all over the world sending their top riders. The race spans six days and includes over 1,500 kilometers of terrains ranging from mountains, forests, deserts, cliffs, rocks, water and more.

The rigorous layout will act as a course for more than 1,000 racers from 40 countries. Racers will also be required to work on their own bikes during the race and only have 15 minutes each day to do so.

Vore will graduate from IUPUI this December with a Bachelor’s Degree in Geology. During his 17 years of racing, Vore has been awarded the Enduro Grand Champion in his district each of the last three years.

The estimated cost per rider is between $20,000-$30,000 that includes travel, shipping of the motorcycle to and from, living and food expenses, entry fees and more. Each rider is responsible for their own fundraising.

Vore will be accepting donations on their facebook page at www.facebook.com/donate/2430976833594488/.

Wagner’s Restaurant in Porter will also be sponsoring Vore and has pledged to double what Vore brings in through the facebook fundraiser and Rib orders up to $10,000.
