The 2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series, presented by Lucas Oil will kick off on Friday, May 4th at the Orleans Arena during the Monster Energy Supercross finals weekend. A new event in Sacramento California on Saturday, June 9th will serve as round two and the point standings after these two opening rounds will also be used to qualify riders for the 2012 X Games Enduro X, which will serve as round three for the Expert riders.
The EnduroCross series will then take a summer break before returning to Ontario California, which was a big success during the first visit in 2011. Denver Colorado will be next on the schedule followed by Everett Washington, Boise Idaho and the traditional Las Vegas finals. The series will increase from seven to eight events in 2012.
“We are excited about the continued growth and awareness of EnduroCross since it provides great opportunities to showcase the talent of some of the top off-road motorcycle riders in the world”, stated Mike Karsting, VP of Events for Source Interlink. “The two new events this season in Ontario and Boise had great crowds and we feel that Sacramento will prove to be another winner due to the strong off-road motorcycle market in Northern California”.
