 The Prescott Valley Event Center rocked to a sold-out packed house on Saturday night, as
round 1 of the 2018 EnduroCross Series kicked off. KTM’s Cooper Webb ended up with the win after trading the lead several times with Husqvarna rider Colton Haacker, who finished second. The third podium spot went to Husky’s Trystan Hart. From what I’ve heard, it
was virtually standing room only, and some late-arriving fans had to be turned away. The race itself was very exciting, due in no small part to the extreme difficulty of the track and the fact it had been heavily watered, which added to the rider’s challenges. Arizona’s Max Gerston was the best AZ rider in the Pro class with an 8th, which was a superb effort.
There were a variety of Sportsman classes as well, and 14-year old Dominic Craighill from Oracle, AZ really had the crowd excited with his never-say-die attitude. Dominic finished 4th in the Trialscross class (first Arizona rider) on his KX100.
There’s a good chance there will
be a more detailed story in the next issue, as I believe or Off Road Editor
Scott Spinning was in attendance - unfortunately, though I wanted to go I was announcing the Monsoon Madness final at Canyon. Maybe next year - I think the EnduroCross Series has so much more to offer than Supercross . . . but that’s just me. v
