EnduroCross Adds 3 More Women’s Rounds

Tuesday, July 10, 2012
EnduroCross
The 2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship already includes a five round series for women. Those five rounds were strategically selected to avoid conflicts with other major race series and allow all of the top female riders to compete for the championship. Due to popular demand from both riders and fans, a women’s class will be added to the three events that did not already include it; Ontario, California, Denver, Colorado and Everett Washington. They will be non-points awarding events but will allow female riders to compete in their own class. Ten participants are necessary for a separate race, just like the other classes.

“The spectators have really embraced the women’s class and the riders have really stepped up their skills” stated Eric Peronnard, the creator of EnduroCross. “We had several riders and fans asking if we would have the women’s class at the remaining rounds so we decided to add the class to the three events that were not already planned”.

After three of the five points awarding events, Maria Forsberg is currently leading with 81 points followed by Louise Forsley at 76, Chantelle Bykerk at 64, Kacy Martinez at 55 and Rachel Gutish at 44.

The following five 2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross rounds are part of the Women’s Championship and the remaining three rounds will include a non-point paying women’s class (ten riders needed to include a separate race):
