The Geico EnduroCross series wrapped up its season in Ontario, California with the championship on the line. In the end, it was Stillwell Performance Beta rider Cody Webb who walked away with the championship by finishing second to reigning number one Taddy Blazusiak. Blazusiak led almost the entire main event on his KTM 350 after passing holeshot winner Colton Haaker. Haaker had a realistic shot at the title, but only if Webb suffered some kind of misfortune; a very likely possibility in EnduroCross. But Webb held a solid third place through most of the main. Then it was Haaker who suffered a series of hang-ups and set backs, allowing Webb in to second. Blazusiak had smooth sailing until the very last lap within sight of the checkered flag. Nick Thompson had fallen in the treacherous matrix and Taddy ran over both him and his bike. Blazusiak stalled out and long seconds ticked by while Webb closed in. In the end, Taddy held on to his lead.
Before the event began, RPM Racing’s Ty Tremain was awarded the Junior number one plate which he wrapped up in the last round. The Woman’s class was up for grabs, however. That set up a showdown in the main event. Canadian Lexi Pechout won the main event and ended up taking the championship by a single point.
The Ontario race was the last Beta ride for Webb, who will be switching to the KTM-mounted RPM Racing team for 2015.
Cody Webb was second but clinched the title.
The matrix at Ontario was even tougher than usual.
The Woman’s race was intense. Eventual winner Lexi Pechout only led the final 30 feet of the race.
