TULSA, Okla. — The six-round 2021 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series will kick off this Saturday at the BOK Center.
“The AMA is looking forward to another great season of racing and working with Tod Hammock and the entire EnduroCross Team,” said Erek Kudla, AMA Off-Road Racing Manager. “With the expansion of the series into the Midwest more fans across the country will have the opportunity to experience the gnarliest off-road racing the sport has to offer.”
Rockstar Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker will be back and aiming to earn his fifth AMA EnduroCross championship, which would tie him at the top of the list with Taddy Blazusiak. FactoryOne Sherco rider Cody Webb would normally be Haaker’s stiffest competition, but an injured wrist will have him starting the season on the sidelines.
Who is next in line to challenge Haaker and Webb?
FMF KTM’s Taylor Robert, a multi-time EnduroCross race winner will be back racing EnduroCross in 2021. Canadian Trystan Hart earned his first two EnduroCross wins in 2020 as a part of the FMF KTM Factory Racing team. He is focused on earning his first AMA EnduroCross championship in 2021.
Cooper Abbott had a breakout season in 2020, earning a moto win and overall podium to help him earn fourth in the championship. The RPM KTM rider wants more this season. Cory Graffunder is an EnduroCross veteran that has earned multiple podium finishes. He finished fifth in 2020 and will be back for more.
And there are a lot of other exciting riders to watch at EnduroCross. Noah Kepple is talented rider that will be looking to improve. He just missed out on a top five series finish last season.
Max Gerston has been a consistent top finisher over the years and has created his own team utilizing GasGas motorcycles. Will Riordan, Ryder LeBlond, Spencer Wilton and a host of other young riders will be looking to make their marks as well.
