Colton Haaker heads a top line up of talent for this weekend’s Rookstool EnduroMX endurocross race in Oregon, USA.
Mixing motocross with endurocross, the entry list for the event is strong with Haaker being joined by Geoff Aaron, Ty Tremaine and Mike Brown among those chasing the $15,000 prize purse.
Held this May 12th and 13th at the Seven Feathers event centre in Central Point, OR the track will be a unique hybrid incorporating the world of offroad racing and MX.
Event organiser Scott Cala explains…
“The track will not be difficult. Our philosophy is to try and bring in MX riders so the Endurocross section is actually what we are calling an 'Enduro' section.
“Our goal in the Enduro(cross) section is to increase speeds and not have any congestion so the race flows like a normal race. We also want to bring more 'air' to the race.
“Fans love speed and air so that is what we are trying to increase from Endurocross along with bringing together Off Road guys and Moto guys. The MX section will also be a little 'easier' than normal with our 'triple jump' having a very forgiving landing.”
Along with the Pro class there is races for Amateur Open, Vet 30+ and Women.
Qualifying and Practice start at 8:00AM on Friday May 12 and Saturday May 13. Doors open at 6:00PM and racing begins at 7:00PM both nights.
