2011 AMA Endurocross Finale

GEICO Honda rider Geoff Aaron knows how important it is to end the GEICO AMA Endurocross season on a high note is, and this year it’s doubly so.

Geoff Aaron (GEICO Honda Endurocross) says: “We always look forward to the Vegas finale,” Aaron said. “This year it’s a double points event so it’s even more important to do well at this race. I’ve been riding and training hard and I really hope to end solid this year.”

The Endurocross finale takes place Saturday at the Orleans Arena just off the legendary Las Vegas strip with Aaron just nine points behind Mike Brown for second place in the season rankings.

Heading into this race, Aaron said he and the bike are as in tune as they have been all season.

Geoff Aaron says: “We’ve made progress with the Hondas and have been slowly modifying and changing things here and there. Finally toward the end of the season we’ve got our bikes as dialed in as they have been all year. I’m pretty happy right now.”

Aaron’s teammate Kyle Redmond is in eighth place in the standings and will be looking to lock-in a spot in the top 10 in the final standings as he is being closely pursued by Bobby Prochnou and Kevin Rookstool.

Joining the GEICO Honda team, owned by JT and Gretchen Bennett, for this event is 2011 World Enduro EJ (Jr.) Class champion Jeremy Joly, 23, of Montpellier, France.

Jeremy Joly (GEICO Honda Endurocross) says: “I’m very excited to ride a GEICO Honda. This is a great opportunity for me. his will be my first race in the U.S. and I’m looking forward to competing against the best in the world, with some of the best teammates a rider could ask for and a very gracious team owner.

“It’s not going to be an easy race but I know that with the GEICO Honda and the support of my regular sponsor, Freegun Underwear, I’ll have everything I need to do well.”
