The second annual King of the Motos will take place this Sunday, February 3rd in Lucerne, California. The event provides great spectator opportunities to witness riders traversing unbelievable obstacles and will also have a live webcast for those that can't be there in person.

The $10,000 winner take all event was a big hit last year. The California desert version of an Extreme Enduro attracted a diverse group of top off-road motorcycle racers. Great Britain's Graham Jarvis showed why he is recognized as the best Extreme Enduro rider in the world by outlasting the field. Kyle Redmond, the California native that is a top EnduroCross racer that has competed in several International Extreme Enduro events kept Jarvis honest and finished second while Destry Abbott, the multi time AMA Hare & Hound champion rounded out the podium and was one of only six official finishers.

The extremely tough course that traverses the rocky hills and washes in Lucerne left the field scattered behind with a lot of broken bikes and ego's. Kurt Caselli and Cody Webb were among the early leaders that failed to finish.

Louise Forsley, the top American Trials rider and EnduroCross regular has entered the expert class and is aiming to be the first female rider to finish the King of the Motos.

If you can't be there in person, there will be a live webcast starting at 8:00 AM PST. Click here to watch:  http://ultra4racing.com/live/
