Covid Crusher 2.0 Extreme Enduro Results
The SEER Racing organization held its Covid Crusher 2.0 Extreme Enduro in Hollytree, Alabama, February 13. And it was a tough one.
It took the top riders just under three hours to complete three laps of the eight-mile course, which featured many rocky creek beds and deep slippery ruts. The race, which featured a record turnout of 180 riders, boiled down to a three-man battle for the win. Ryder LeBlond (Husqvarna), Quinn Wentzel (Rieju) and Nick Fahringer (Sherco) all had a shot at the win, with each one leading the race at one time or another. Most of the back and forth for the top spot happened between LeBlond and Wentzel, on the Rieju (the original GasGas brand) 300cc two-stroke. Wentzel was the early leader, but it was LeBlond who led the most laps and the most important lap–the last one.
LeBlond had room to spare as he took the checkered flag over Wentzel for the overall and Gold-Class victory. Fahringer, last year’s winner, ended up third.
Jeremiah Burkhart finished a distant fourth, while Chris Gary rounded out the top five overall.
Nathan Taylor, 17th overall, was the top-finishing Silver-Class racer.
