Irvine, CA (May 20, 2013) – FMF KTM’s Mike Brown won his second X Games Enduro X Gold medal in Barcelona, Spain. He led an American sweep of the podium as Colton Haaker took a close second on the Rockstar/Lucas oil backed JCR Honda and Cody Webb remounted from a big crash to take third on his Beta.
Taddy Blazusiak, the multi time GEICO AMA EnduroCross champion pressured Brown for the win until a spectacular crash on the last lap took him out of contention for the win. The Polish KTM rider remounted in third position but was passed before the finish by Webb, who had crashed on the same log double earlier in the race. Blazusiak finished fourth with Husqvarna’s Cory Graffunder close behind in fifth. Kyle Redmond, Gary Sutherlin, Bobby Prochnau, Alfredo Gomez and Taylor Robert rounded out the top ten.
