Morgan Tanke: “I’m glad to end the 2019 race season on a high note with a 2nd place in Boise. The track was tough, but I was able to put in clean laps with minimal mistakes. It was fun battling it out with my teammate Rachel throughout the race and almost catching the leader as well. The EnduroX season was short this year, but I’m happy to take what I learned and apply it to next season!”

Rachel Gutish: “The track in Boise was awesome – a great balance of several challenging obstacles, like the matrix and firewood pit, and some faster, more jumpy sections. I struggled hard in the firewood pit during my morning practices and qualifiers. Fortunately, I was finally able to get it figured out in my afternoon practice. I had a good start, and by the end of the first lap I had worked my way into third place. I followed my teammate Morgan Tanke for several laps before getting hung up while pivot-turning over the tires. With two laps to go, I was able to charge hard enough to catch back up to her, but was unable to make a pass and ended my day in third place. That was enough to give me second place in the series for the year, which is very exciting! I’m stoked that I was able to come back to EnduroX after not racing it or training for it in over two years and still be highly competitive. It was also really cool to have both Morgan and I up on the podium this weekend – the more Beta’s on the box, the better!”

Max Gerston: “The EnduroX season finale in Boise was a bit of a roller coaster. Coming into the race I was tied for 3rd in points and motivated to make the moves needed to end up on the podium to earn a top 3 end of the year spot. I put myself in a good position to capitalize in the final moto, then I cut it a little too close and caught my brake pedal on some laid down tires. It took me a while to get the brake pedal unbent but I was then left with no rear brake. I carded 3-5-13 moto scores. I am bummed I wasn’t able to make it happen, however I know where I am at and what I am capable of. I can’t wait to come back next year and see what I got. My 300 RR was absolutely amazing at all three EnduroX rounds. The lightweight and nimble chassis made it fun and easy to ride.”
