Corona, CA – November 19, 2012 – Kyle Redmond was able to ride his strong momentum to a season-best finish at the Las Vegas finale of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series. The FMF/Stillwell Performance-backed rider was able to get his TXC310 on the podium with a third place finish after battling tooth and nail down to the last lap.

“I’m really happy to get the Husky up there on the podium,” Redmond said. “It’s a huge relief for me this year. It’s a really great bike and I’m so happy to be with Husqvarna and be on this team. I want to thank Husky for sticking with me. They believed in me this year. The start of the season was not very good – obviously I fractured my ankle so I was trying to catch up. These last few rounds I felt good but I just haven’t gotten the starts I needed. It finally all came together tonight; I got the start and got through the lappers.”

Redmond’s night started out at a disadvantage when he was caught up in a crash on the first lap of the main. Fortunately for him there were two main events at the double-header season finale, so Kyle had a second chance, and thanks to an interesting starting technique, he got the start he needed to battle for the podium. Rather than picking his own gate, Redmond opted to line up on the second row, behind Taddy Blazusiak and Cody Webb (eventual first and second place finishers). The tactic paid off and Redmond was able to sneak in a top-five start.
