Everett, WA – A sold out Comcast Arena in Everett, Washington hosted round six of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series and witnessed an amazing night of racing. Although KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak got another win, he was challenged again by Beta’s Cody Webb who passed him and then led several laps before sliding out in a simple turn of all things. Blazusiak regained the lead but Webb remained close until two laps from the end when he stalled his bike and could not get it to re-fire and eventually went a lap down and finished tenth. Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert fought through the pack to take second position. The battle for third raged until the last lap when top Canadian off road racer, Bobby Prochnau took the position away from Mike Brown.
Everett, WA – The 2011 GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by Lucas Oil made a huge impact as part of the X Games less than two weeks ago then the riders made the trip up to the Pacific Northwest to race in the Comcast Arena in Everett Washington. And just like at the X Games, Taddy Blazusiak rode his Factory KTM 350 to the win. Geoff Aaron finished second on his GEICO Honda while Cody Webb rounded out the podium on his factory Beta.
The afternoon got started with the timed qualifying laps to determine the gate picks for the heat races. Blazusiak set the fastest time followed by Aaron, Graham Jarvis, Mike Brown and Colton Haaker. The “Hot Laps” determine the gate picks for the heat races.
Blazusiak, Webb and Jarvis each won their heat races to get direct transfers to the main event. Webb has really stepped up his game for EnduroCross and looks like he will be a regular podium contender. Jarvis made the trip from England to compete in a few North American off road events and showed that he is a contender. The biggest surprise non-qualifier for the main event was Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert who could not re-fire his bike after stalling in his semi.
