Press Release from EnduroCross: The 2016 AMA EnduroCross series will kick off this coming weekend in Duluth, Georgia, which is just a little north of Atlanta. All eight rounds will take place over the next three months, making it easy for fans to follow the action packed season. A large field of some of the best off-road riders in the world will be battling for the championship on the technical tracks.
FMF KTM’s Cody Webb will be aiming for a three-peat but Taddy Blazusiak is back to try to reclaim the title he held for five straight years before Webb took him down. And Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker has found the consistency needed to compete for the title and is hungry to back up his FIM SuperEnduro Championship.
There is a long list of riders looking to take down the established stars; Mike Brown is always in contention on his Husqvarna. The Factory Beta team of Kyle Redmond and Max Gerston are on the verge of doing that. SRT backed Cory Graffunder finished fourth last year and wants to interrupt the podium celebrations. Geoff Aaron, the ten time AMA Trials Champion is back for another year on his Gas Gas as well and wants to add to his win list. And Utah’s Nick Thompson opened some eyes last season with his speed.
And if you are looking for the up and comers to cheer for, Ty Tremaine has won the Junior EnduroCross Championship the last two years. But Noah Kepple, Cooper Abbott, and Ty Cullins have all worked hard over the off-season to step up and challenge him. And the Hart brothers, Wyatt and Trystan will travel down from Canada to put in strong results.
The insane EnduroCross obstacles provide a great show and exciting racing for race fans. So if you have never been to an AMA EnduroCross in person, you need to put one on your calendar for 2016.
And if you want to tackle an EnduroCross course yourself, there are classes for Amateur, Vet, Women and TrialsCross riders. All of those support class main events run as part of the night show so it is your chance to compete in front of a large crowd. And there is nothing more challenging than tackling an EnduroCross course.
