TULSA, OK (October 24, 2019) – The 2019 AMA EnduroCross Championship will be decided at the Seat Concepts Boise EnduroCross this weekend. Rockstar Husqvarna backed Colton Haaker holds a small two-point advantage over Red Bull KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak. Assuming that they both finish in the top five, the rider that finishes ahead of the other will take the title. With the new for 2019 three-moto format, the pressure will be on both riders all night long.
Haaker is a two-time and defending AMA EnduroCross champion. He came up in the shadow of Blazusiak, who is a five-time AMA EnduroCross champion from Poland. But the momentum shifted to the younger Haaker and fellow American Cody Webb, who have won the last five titles between them. Haaker won the opening 2019 race in Prescott Valley, Arizona with 2-1-1 moto finishes while Blazusiak had a few crashes that held him back to third overall. Blazusiak stormed back at round two in Denver and won the event with 1-1-2 moto scores while Haaker finished second after subpar starts and a crash in moto three. Come see it in person or keep an eye on the action to see who claims the 2019 Super EnduroCross title.
The battle for third in the championship is even closer with RPM KTM backed Trystan Hart tied with Beta USA supported Max Gerston. And Cory Graffunder is just two points behind them after a strong second-place finish at the opening round on his SRT Offroad Yamaha.
3Bros / SRT / Husqvarna rider Noah Kepple is currently sitting in the sixth position and is among the large group of riders that have battled hard for the top spots. He has had two third-place moto finishes so far in 2019. Ty Cullins is another rider battling at the front. He is racing a TM two-stroke and is holding the seventh position and leading the Junior Championship for riders that are 21 and under.
Geoff Aaron, Nick Thompson, and Tim Apolle enter the Boise finale in seventh through tenth place respectively.
In addition to the Super EnduroCross (Pro) championship, the titles will be on the line for the Women, Vet 35+ and Intermediate classes. There are also non-championship Amateur and local Club classes that will be competing.
