Two races in already, both in front of sold-out arenas, and the 2018 AMA EnduroCross series hits Reno this Saturday, September 22.
Cody Webb won round one in Prescott Valley, Arizona despite coming in with limited riding time due to a broken foot sustained at the ErzbergRodeo just a few months earlier. It seemed Colton Haaker would have an uphill battle ahead of him but at round two in Costa Mesa, California, he stormed back with a dominant win. Who will take the upper hand in Reno on one of the largest tracks used all season?
Trystan Hart showed amazing speed and endurance at round two by passing Webb on the final lap to steal second. Hart is hungry for his first career win.
Ty Tremaine will give the locals someone to cheer for. He grabbed the holeshot and rode the Alta Redshift electric bike to fourth place in California and will be looking to improve on that in front of his family and friends this weekend.
Looking for more riders that could mix things up? Kyle Redmond, Geoff Aaron, Ty Cullins, Benjamin Herrera (coming all the way from Chile), Cooper Abbott and Noah Kepple currently hold sixth through tenth place positions in the points and they all want to move up the ranks.
It’s not all about the pro class, EnduroCross events include classes for the Women, Vet 35+, Amateur and TrialsCross.
The Women’s class is always exciting. So far Kacy Martinez and Shelby Turner have traded wins. They are both determined to take the 2018 championship and, along with all of the women competitors, show amazing grit to get through the tough EnduroCross obstacles.
