Irvine, CA (September 12, 2011) – KTM has created the first-ever KTM EnduroCross Experience for two rounds of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by Lucas Oil. At this coming weekend’s Ontario, California round as well as the Las Vegas final in November, the first 20 KTM riders to enter the amateur classes will receive a FREE one hour riding session courtesy of KTM on the Friday before the race. And it gets better as the factory KTM riders will be on the track to provide instruction and riding tips to help navigate the difficult EnduroCross obstacles.
“Just riding around an EnduroCross track is extremely tough so getting riding tips from Taddy Blazusiak and Mike Brown is an amazing opportunity to learn how to tackle the obstacles”, stated Lance Bryson, Director of Sales and Marketing for EnduroCross. “These guys are currently first and second in the series standings so we are really excited about KTM pulling this program together for their loyal customers”. To top it all off, the participating riders will also get a KTM t-shirt and photo from their track session.
There are still a few openings for the Ontario event and you can find out more at www.EnduroCross.com and then follow the links to register for the race and then click the KTM EnduroCross Experience button. You do need to be entered in one of the amateur classes to be eligible.
Admission to the EnduroCross pit area is free all day and the arena is also open with free admission during the daytime practice and qualifiers, which get started on Saturday morning. The top 30 Expert riders also do individual Hot Laps during the midafternoon, so make a day out of it and check it out in person.
Tickets are available at John Burr Kawasaki, Malcolm Smith Motorsports Kawasaki, Corona Motorsports Kawasaki, Del Amo Motorsports Kawasaki, and Ticketmaster: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/2C00463FF87A3CCF.
