Rev-up for round two of the 2018 EnduroCross season with a recap video with all the action from round one in Prescott Valley.
The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center plays host to EnduroCross 2018 round two this Saturday, September 22. Reigning champion Cody Webb won the opening round of the season after a battle with Colton Haaker and some tough qualifying sessions for KTM rider. The lead went back and forth during the main event but Webb was buzzing after taking the opening round win of 2018 in Prescott Valley.
One thing’s for sure Colton Haaker will want to make amends and get back on the top step of the podium this weekend. The former champion is on a bit of win drought but surely lucked-out with lapped riders in Prescott Valley. Heading to Costa Mesa Haaker will hope the larger venue will bring more room to race on the bigger track layout. That win drought isn’t gonna last if we know Colton!
Trystan Hart made an impressive comeback from ninth on lap one in Prescott Valley to finish up in third place. His teammate, Kyle Redmond, also had a strong night in fourth battling with Ty Cullins all the way.
It’s not all about the big names though and the Endurocross series brings in a strong line-up of support races.
Kacy Martinez took an exciting Women’s class main event win in Prescott and will look to cement her championship lead in Costa Mesa. 2017 champion, Shelby Turner lost out to Martinez on the last lap so she too will look to turn the tables this weekend. Morgan Tanke rounded out the podium.
Destry Abbott won the Vet class on his KTM despite two big crashes in the rock section. Dan Hayakawa finished second and Michele De Mas rounded out that podium.
Joshua Bridge made a long drive from Canada pay off with a win in the Open Amateur class. The equally well-travelled Grayson Gonsalves from Hawaii was second and Gavin McCarthy third.
Watch out too for the TrialsCross class which 15-year-old Cole Cherick took at round one. Coleman Johnson and Nicole Bradford took second and third, respectively.
The Protaper foot race is always worth a watch too…
Doors open for all you locals from 6:30pm and rider autograph sessions are happening immediately the doors open so don’t be late.
The evening’s racing begins from 7:30pm local time.
