The 2018 AMA EnduroCross Series will kick off the first of six rounds on August 25th in Prescott Valley, Arizona. This will be the first EnduroCross event in Prescott Valley, but Arizona is a hotbed for off-road motorcycle racing and powersports.
Longtime rivals, FMF KTM-sponsored rider Cody Webb and Rockstar Husqvarna-sponsored rider Colton Haaker will face off again on the track, as Webb enters the series as this year’s favorite to win. SRT’s Trystan Hart was 2017’s runner-up, Ty Tremaine finished the series third in 2016 and 2017, and this year will be riding an Alta Motors Electric motorcycle. Other competitors to watch include Noah Kepple, sponsored by GasGas, and Cooper Abbott, son of off-road legend Destry. Fans can’t forget SRT’s Kyle Redmond, Cory Graffunder, GasGas’ Geoff Aaron and Beta’s Max Gerston.
Round two will take place in conjunction with the widely popular Sand Sports Super Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Costa Mesa, California.
Round three will be held at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center in Nevada, another strong off-road motorcycle and powersports community along the tour.
The National Western Events Center in Denver, Colorado will host round four. This arena has been part of the series since 2007 and is a favorite among the riders.
The series will travel to the Pacific Northwest for round five. The XFINITY Arena in Everett, Washington is known for its soft soil, creating an even more challenging and exciting course.
For the first time, the season will wrap up in Nampa, Idaho, just outside of Boise. The Ford Idaho Center’s huge arena floor will make for a great course to decide the championships.
In addition to the Super EnduroCross (Pro) class, the EnduroCross series will again include Open Amateur, Vet 35+, TrialsCross and Women’s classes. The main events for each of the classes will compete during the evening performance when the stands are packed with fans.
