2013-EX-Sacramento-Ruiz-6-10-13Corona, CA – June 10, 2013 – Factory Husqvarna’s Cory Graffunder hit the road for round two of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series with one thing on his mind – podium. After starting the season with a modest seventh-place finish at the opening round, Graffunder was determined to improve his results, and he was able to do just that with a third-place finish, on the podium, at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.

The battle for third in the main event turned out to be an intense one. Graffunder had his hands full getting around his former teammate, Kyle Redmond, who held third for much of the main. Cory then had the challenge of fending off a hard charging Taddy Blazusiak for the final podium position. Graffunder proved to be unstoppable on his factory Husqvarna TXC310R, and would not be pressured into making any mistakes.

Geico-Endurocross-New-4-10-13Sacramento, CA – Mike Brown kept his streak going at round two of the 2013 GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, fueled by Monster Energy and presented by Lucas Oil inside the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. The FMF KTM rider had a nearly perfect day by setting the fastest time during the daytime hot laps, winning his heat race and finishing a close second in the night time hot laps before leading every lap of the main event. “I have started the season really well but there is still a long ways to go for the championship” Brown said. “But this is like getting the holeshot on the season”.

Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert was a very close second in the main event and kept the pressure on for the entire main event. He ate a lot of roost off of Brown’s rear wheel and eventually had to remove his goggles. “I just could not see because Brown was roosting me every lap when we exited the water hole.”

The battle for third was intense as RPM KTM’s Kyle Redmond held the spot for several laps before giving way to Husqvarna’s Cory Graffunder. Then Graffunder came under intense pressure from Taddy Blazusiak and Colton Haaker, who had both moved through the pack after going down on the start. Haaker passed Blazusiak and made a last lap pass attempt on Graffunder and went down in the firewood pit. Graffunder held the final podium spot, Blazusiak passed the downed Haaker for fourth and Haaker recovered for fifth.

Husqvara-Off-Road-5-28-14Corona, CA – May 28, 2013 - A homeland race, a gnarly endurocross course and a Red Bull twist added up to what Cory Graffunder called “a perfect day” at the Red Bull Rocks & Logs event in Calgary, Canada. The head-to-head competition took place at the Wild Rose MX Park, and despite some stiff competition from fellow Canadian pro racers, Graffunder dominated the day aboard his Husqvarna TXC310R.

“I won all the heats and the final, which is what I was hoping to do,” Cory said. “There were some other fast guys here today and it definitely wasn’t going to be a walk in the park. The rain on Friday was worrying, but the sun came out and it really came together. It was all pretty tough but nothing was super gnarly.”

The opening round of the 2013 AMA EnduroCross season did not disappoint as JCR/Honda EnduroCross sensation Colton Haaker shined in the Orleans Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada. Battling all night long, Colton Haaker showed he has the speed and endurance to challenge for the championship.
