A diagram cannot do any EnduroCross track justice as the obstacles are flat out gnarly in person, especially when you have to race through them. But the Track Map for the opening round of the 2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross, presented by Lucas Oil reveal the first ever Over-Under bridge for an EnduroCross track. When the world’s top off-road motorcycle racers hit the track inside the Orleans Arena on Friday, May 4th, they will more likely be concerned about the huge boulders, logs, tractor tires and water hole but the new bridge will certainly be a cool addition to the navigate.
“We are always looking for new obstacles to challenge the riders and keep the spectators guessing” stated Mike Karsting, VP of Events at Source Interlink. “So we are looking forward to the Over-Under bridge as well as placing the starting gate outside the Arena, which will leave more room on the floor for the rest of the obstacles.”
The opening round also coincides with both the Monster Energy Supercross finals in Las Vegas and the ninth annual MiniMotoSX on Sunday. So this is a jam packed weekend of motorcycle racing in Las Vegas. Get your tickets now to make sure you have a seat.
