The 2016 AMA EnduroCross series will start the second half of the
season in Denver this weekend and Colton Haaker holds a small
seven-point lead over Cody Webb. Husqvarna’s Haaker has won three of the
four races so far and looked very strong taking the win in Phoenix last
weekend. KTM’s Webb, the two-time defending champion, has one win, two
seconds and a third so far this season, enough to keep the pressure on
While those two riders have been dominant so far, Husqvarna’s Mike
Brown has been the most consistent among the rest. The ageless Brown had
another strong ride in Phoenix to take fourth, backing up two
consecutive third place finishes in Sioux Falls and Salt Lake City. He
currently holds third in the championship.
Fourth is currently held by RPM KTM’s Ty Tremaine. The
twenty-year-old is getting closer to the podium all the time. Tremaine
also leads the Junior EnduroCross Championship, which is a championship
within a championship for riders twenty-one and under.
Geoff Aaron continues to mix it up at the front on his GasGas and is tied for fifth in the championship with Beta’s Max Gerston.
Seventh is held by Kyle Redmond. The Factory Beta rider has displayed
solid speed this season but struggled with putting together the top
finish he is capable of.
Noah Kepple, another youngster battling for the Junior EnduroCross
Championship, has qualified for all four main events thus far and
finished fifth in Sioux Falls. He is currently tied for eighth with
Canada’s Cory Graffunder. Graffunder thrives on the tough tracks and put
in his best finish of the season so far in Phoenix with a sixth. He has
finished on the podium in the past and is hungry to get back there in
the four races still to come.
Tenth position is another tie between Poland’s Taddy Blazusiak and
young Trystan Hart. Blazusiak opened the season with a third but has
struggled since injuring his thumb at round two. Canada’s Hart, on the
other hand, missed the opening round but has come on strong with sixth,
seventh and fifth place finishes in Sioux Falls, Salt Lake, and Phoenix
respectively. This is another kid to keep your eye on.
