The Los Ancianos Motorcycle Club released the results of the 50th Anniversary Tecate Enduro this morning and they show Zip-Ty Racing Husqvarna taking the top two spots with Bobby Garrison edging
Cory Graffunder for the win, 20.2167 to 20.4000. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert claimed third with a 21.8000-point score. In addition, the Zip-Ty quartet of Garrison, Graffunder, Nick Burson and captain Ty Davis beat Kawasaki’s Destry Abbott, Larry Roeseler, Justin Soulé and Robert for team honors, 104.17 to 114.70.
Normally a motocrosser and WORCS racer, Garrison claimed he wasn’t bothered by the switch from last year’s hare scrambles to an enduro format this year.
“It was fine,” he said. “You didn’t have to keep track of time, really – you just went. The transfer sections you just kind of rode.
“It was pretty fun, I thought. You couldn’t have asked for better conditions!
“Me and Cory had a pretty good battle [for top spot] just for our team, and it came down to the last test; it came down to 10 seconds, so it was a pretty good race.”
