Irvine, CA (November 9, 2011) – The first-ever KTM EnduroCross Experience took place at the Ontario, California round of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by Lucas Oil and it was a big hit. Riders got to ride the track on Friday night and get extensive advice and riding tips from Mike Brown and Taddy Blazusiak. KTM will host this great experience again at next week’s Las Vegas round. The first 20 KTM riders to enter the amateur classes will receive a FREE one hour riding session courtesy of KTM on Friday, November 18th.
Bob Theobald was one of the lucky riders that participated in the Ontario, California KTM EnduroCross Experience and he had this to say “This was an amazing event. From the expert level riders to the average vet rider such as myself, we all learned how to ride better.” He then added, “If you have never raced an EnduroCross and have it on your bucket list, or you have raced it and want to get better, then the KTM EnduroCross Rider Experience is a must do.
