Trystan Hart: “The race went really well here in Idaho, not a lot of drama for me – I caught the guys early on and then Cody [Webb] and I battled for a bit before he had a huge high-side down the hill. The track got harder and harder closer to the finish and I was just coasting on the trails, which I don’t normally do, but I was conserving energy in case there were any more surprises. It was a good race, I was so nervous bringing it home!”

FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Trystan Hart has successfully defended his AMA U.S. Hard Enduro Championship, clinching the 2023 title after claiming another race victory at the Silver Kings Hard Enduro. As he did with a clean-sweep of the series on his way to the championship last season, 26-year-old Hart has continued that winning form this year and maintained his perfect record in Round 6 at the picturesque Silver Mountain Ski Resort, also sealing the AMA West Extreme Regional Championship in the process.

After topping Friday’s Prologue at the Idaho event, Hart made his way into the lead during the early stages of Saturday’s Main Event, taking control from there with a total time of 2:52:36 and racing to an eventual winning margin of 40 seconds. It was a convincing way to capture the title, marking his third-consecutive crown in the series.

Ryder LeBlond: “It was a gnarly day on the mountain here at the Silver Kings Hard Enduro. This was definitely a real hard enduro – probably one of the toughest ones I’ve done in the United States so far, it was just a long, brutal beat down. We had some good battles all day, which was fun, and at the end there I was able to break away from the group and grab P2 for the day, which is awesome.”


Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing contender Ryder LeBlond finished in  second place, with Sherco’s Cody Webb taking the final slot on the podium. Haaker put in a solid ride at the Silver Kings event, despite a detour that cost him a significant amount of time landing him in fourth-place result.



Colton Haaker: “Super steep, super long, and I got some cramps. I had a great time, just had a small mishap at the first checkpoint where I went down the silver route for about 20 minutes and had to double-back to hit the gold run. I was in the lead, then that put me back to 15th, charged through the race, and pulled it in for a fourth-place finish. All in all, great day, and the bike was awesome.”
