Cycle City Promotions announced today that the EnduroCross Racing Series will be hosting the first four rounds of the AMA Championship Series on different dates and at a different venue.
The new EnduroCross location for the rounds will be at the Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino California. The new dates are 23 October (Round One), 24 October (Round Two), 29 October (Round Three) and 30 October (Round Four).
The final two races will still take place in Nampa, Idaho at the Ford Idaho Center on the same dates. The updated schedule is as follows:
“After continued conversations regarding the safe and best way to bring EnduroCross back to both the racer and spectator, we decided it was in everyone’s best interest to relocate to Glen Helen Raceway,” said Tod Hammock, president and founder of Cycle City Promotions. “This venue is only 70 miles north of our previous one, and we hope the new dates will allow racers a little extra time to prepare and attend.”
The continued priority at these six events will be health and safety of the riders, fans and support staff involved. The return to racing will be a responsible one, including guidelines and protocols for competitors and essential staff. We will continue to work with both venues and will comply with all federal, state and local mandates.
Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker is returning to defend his championship and Cody Webb, fresh off winning the RevLimiter, has joined the FactoryOne Sherco team to try to get another title of his own. Each of them has won three championships and is aiming for a fourth.
Canadian Trystan Hart has closed the gap on the two top EnduroCross racers and will be looking to take his first title on the RPM KTM. The Beta Factory team will also have a strong team consisting of Max Gerston and Chile’s Benjamin Herrera. Five-time champion Taddy Blazusiak is hoping to participate if he can make it work around other racing commitments in Europe. Add in exciting riders like Cory Graffunder, Noah Kepple, Ty Cullins (the defending EnduroCross Junior champion for riders 21 and under) and Cooper Abbott and this should prove to be a very exciting season to watch.
