The 2015 Geico EnduroCross season came down to a single night of action at Citizen’s Bank Arena in Ontario, California Saturday. Rockstar Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker and RPM KTM’s Cody Webb were separated by only 10 points going into the final race. Webb had the advantage, but Haaker had the momentum after having won the last  round.  In the end, it was Taylor Robert who stole the spotlight from both title contenders. He took the lead from Webb halfway through the main event and went on to ride a flawless race, winning his first main of the year. Colton was involved in a first turn pile up, but then rode brilliantly to catch Webb in the final laps. The two title contenders collided several times in a battle over second place, but Webb survived the ordeal in better shape. He went on to second place, winning his second Endurocross title in the process. Haaker stayed upright enough to finish third ahead of Beta’s Max Gersten. The most significant non-finisher of the night was Husqvarna’s Mike Brown, who injured his wrist in his heat race.

“It feels good to get another win and I feel like I should have a lot more of them by now but there are a lot of tough rider,” Robert said about his second career win. “I knew those guys were going to be fighting for the championship and that I could probably steal a win.”

“As far as the championship, I definitely felt a lot of pressure but I knew I have been riding solid all year and made good decisions,” Webb said. “It word out in my favor tonight. I felt like I wasn’t the fastest rider tonight but settling for second was OK because I won the championship.”

“I ended up third tonight but was the fastest rider several times with the Heat Race and Hot Lap,” Haaker Said. “I felt like I rode really well and more consistent tonight but the crash in the first turn put me back.”
