The 2020 AMA EnduroCross Racing Series is done and dusted, but if you haven’t seen the results, we aren’t going to spoil it. Instead, we will point you to the Fox Sports 1 (FS1) television coverage in the coming weeks of the six-race series at Glen Helen Raceway.Each pair of rounds are shown in succession to make watching easy. The first showing is for Rounds 1 and 2, with the airing on Saturday, November 7, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., Eastern Time. The following Saturday is Rounds 3 and 4, on Saturday, November 14, in the same 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. time slot in the Eastern Time Zone.
You have to wait until Sunday, November 22, for Round 5 and the finale. They will be shown from 10 a.m. to noon, ET.Top riders to watch for are two previous EnduroCross champions—FactoryOne Sherco’s Cody Webb and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team’s Colton Haaker. Looking for his first EnduroCross title is FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Trystan Hart. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the reigning two-time Junior Class champion—Ultimate Motorcycling Editor At Large Ty Cullins on a factory TM.Each round consists of three motos, with the results of the three moto finishes determining each rider’s final overall position and the number of points awarded. Initially, the first four rounds were planned for Glen Helen Raceway, and the last two rounds for Ford Idaho Center in Nampa. However, government restrictions on indoor racing were set in after the season was set, replacing the two Idaho rounds with two more Glen Helen Raceway events.Photography by Jack Jaxson

This Podcast is also brought to you by the new modular helmet from Schuberth, the C5. The C5 blends safety with light weight and amazing quietness. Visit Schuberth.com for more information.
This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
