Indoor Off-Road racing invades the southeast
The GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship will visit the Gwinnett Center just outside of Atlanta this Saturday and if you can’t be there in person, you can catch the action via a live Webcast. The Webcast will be available on the www.EnduroCross.com and www.DirtRider.com websites.
The championship battle is a tight one with Beta USA GEICO backed Cody Webb holding a one point lead over Rockstar Lucas JCR Honda’s Colton Haaker. Taddy Blazusiak, the five time EnduroCross champion is only three points out of the lead so the pressure will be on.
In addition to the regular EnduroCross stars, several top east coast based riders are planning to compete in Atlanta. Current GNCC XC1 Champion Kailub Russell, GNCC XC2 Champion Grant Baylor, AmPro Yamaha’s Jordan Ashburn and Raines Riding University Yamaha’s Ricky Russell are among top riders planning to compete. Phil Nicoletti, the JGR MX rider is also planning to give EnduroCross a try. So there will be plenty of story lines to follow.
The Atlanta EnduroCross Webcast will be produced by Full Pint Media Group and hosted by Brian Pierce and Jordon Bailey. FPMG created and produces Seat Time, The Online Show for the Offroad Enthusiast.
Not a pro and think you can tame the EnduroCross obstacles? Then come on out and compete in the Open Amateur, Vet 35+ or TrialsCross classes. EnduroCross veteran Destry Abbott will host a “Rookies” training session on Friday night before the event to provide one hour of track time and tips for riders that have never raced an EnduroCross. Don’t miss it!
