IRVINE, Calif – GEICO EnduroCross is proud to welcome back Pro Taper, the industry leader in innovative hard part manufacturing, as the official handlebar of the GEICO EnduroCross Series, fueled by Monster Energy and presented by Lucas Oil.
As the official handlebar, Pro Taper supports the talented EnduroCross competitors through their line of premium hard parts products built to take on the demanding race conditions in stride. Once again, Pro Taper brings the extremely popular Pro Taper Foot Race to the EnduroCross night program. The Pro Taper Foot Race puts 10 lucky fans that are chosen from local radio promotions in each market bar-to-bar behind the starting gate. When the gate drops it’s an all-out sprint around a lap of the challenging EnduroCross course—on foot!
The highly popular intermission event gives lucky fans an up-close and personal look at what it’s like to race on the world’s most challenging off-road courses. And the fans in the seats get an entertaining, wild show.
“Pro Taper is proud to be the official handlebar of EnduroCross for the seventh straight season,” said Pro Taper’s marketing manager, Paul Perebijnos. “The challenging obstacles and intense racing action are a great platform to showcase Pro Taper’s line of innovative and durable products. And the Pro Taper Foot Race is icing on the cake for the lucky fans that get on the track to battle it out on foot over the same course the pros are racing on.”
“EnduroCross values partnerships and our relationship with Pro Taper provides an incredible combination of industry power and entertainment,” said Lance Bryson, Director of Sales and Marketing for EnduroCross. “You won’t find a more dedicated handle bar company to racing and you certainly won’t find a more entertaining intermission race than the Pro Taper Foot Race.”
Las Vegas will again host the opening round of EnduroCross on Friday, May 2, during the Monster Energy Supercross finals weekend. The traditional EnduroCross finals in November will now be held Nov. 22 in Ontario, Calif., The X Games Enduro X event in Austin, Texas, also will be included as a points-paying event for the GEICO AMA EnduroCross championship.
