Pro-Motion Motorsports announced today that 11 riders from nine different countries will compete against the the top U.S. off-road racers in what is the first indoor off-road race of its type in America – The Maxxis EnduroCross.

Headlining the European invasion are David Knight and Paul Edmondson, both from Great Britain. Mika Ahola from Finland, Anders Eriksson from Sweden, Sebastien Guillaume from France, Thierry Klutz from Belgium and Bartosz Oblucki from Poland round out that group. Both Guy Giroux and Guy Perrett represent Canada and Homero Diaz comes from Mexico with Elmer Symons representing South Africa.

“We have an excellent field of riders, both national and international,” claims Eric Peronnard, co-promoter of the Maxxis EnduroCross. “We are very pleased with the response we have received from the riders and the industry. We plan to have an excellent show with some very good racing. The $10,000 first place purse is up for grabs and there are quite a few riders capable of taking the win.”
