Following a six-week break, the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship headed this past weekend to the National Western Complex in Denver for round five of nine.

Rockstar/Lucas Oil/JCRHonda’s Colton Haaker was hungry for a second win, and it arrived in Denver. Haaker battled intensely with the reigning EnduroCross Champion, Red Bull KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak.

Though many challenges were present from Blazusiak and GEICO Beta’s Cody Webb, Haaker eventually took the victory. Haaker was joined on the podium by Blazusiak and Webb, respectively.

With four rounds remaining, Haaker is now tied with Blazusiak as he chases his first EnduroCross title.
