AMA EnduroCross Heads to California

2011 AMA EnduroCross Schedule

For the first time ever, the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by E3 Spark Plugs, will hold an event in California.

The beautiful Citizens Bank Arena, just across the I-10 Freeway from Ontario Airport will play host to "The toughest racing on two wheels" on Saturday, Sept. 17.

You can count on all of the top EC riders to be on hand including KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak, arguably the world’s best extreme conditions motorcycle racer, Geoff Aaron, the 10x US Trials Champion and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Justin Soule, who is quickly proving to be a threat to win.

Mike Karsting (Director of EnduroCross) says: "Although many SoCal residents have made the weekend trip to Vegas to catch an EnduroCross, this will be a great opportunity to expose the amazing action to a whole new group of racing enthusiasts. And the Citizens Bank Arena is an amazing building to showcase EnduroCross for a lot of the motorcycle industry located in the area."
