A cool $50,000 is on the line for any GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross series rider that can pull wins at Guthrie , Okla. , Denver , Colo. , and the seriesâ€™ final round in Las Vegas , Nev.
Think youâ€™ve got what it takes to top the worldâ€™s best off road motorcycle riders in a muddy, rocky, log-covered elbow-to-elbow dirt bike slugfest on the floor of three of the nationâ€™s premier arenas? Well if you do GEICO Powersports will hand you a cool 50 grand â€“ which, by the way, will pale in comparison to the legendary status youâ€™ll have attained by rolling off the couch and onto the top of three GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross series podiums, one win each at Guthrie, Okla., Denver, Colo., and Las Vegas, Nev.
The third annual GEICO Powersports Triple Crown of EnduroCross is back as a thrilling sidebar story to the already edge-of-your-seat exciting EnduroCross series, pitting the worldâ€™s top off road, desert, enduro, cross country, motocross, supercross and trials riders against one and other in this unique form of racing held each month from July through November across the United States.
â€œTwo years ago David Knight literally had 50 grand ripped out of his hands by Taddy Blazusiak,â€ said GEICO Powersportsâ€™ Eric Vaden. â€œEnduroCross racingâ€™s electriying enough. GEICOâ€™s Triple Crown pretty much puts it over the edge.â€
Since the GEICO Powersports Triple Crown of EnduroCrossâ€™ inception in 2006 no racer has been able to step up and collect the bounty. Knightâ€™s come the closest, and all reports point to him making another run at it this year, but in the wild and wooly world of EnduroCross racing â€“ and fans that have attended the live events can attest to this â€“ racers can be leading at one moment and then back to 8th place before you can say â€œI just lost 50 freakinâ€™ grand!â€
