The GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship is headed to the East Coast of the U.S. for the first time since 2009 and it is expected to attract a lot of first time EnduroCross racers. If your have never competed in an EnduroCross and want to give it a try without the added pressure of racing in front of a packed arena, the EnduroCross Rookies Class is for you. Destry Abbott, the legendary off-road racer will be conducting an on-track session on Friday night before the EnduroCross event in Atlanta.
The Atlanta EnduroCross Rookies Class will take place on Friday, August 22nd and is open to riders who have not raced an EnduroCross event. It is open to all brands of motorcycles and Amateur, Vet and Women riders are welcome to participate. Riders can sign up online at https://secure.tracksideonlineresults.com/mmsx_ex/index.asp?event=27&l=0 and select the “Rookie (Beginner) class”. Entered riders will meet at Destry Abbott in the pits at 5:30pm. They’ll be on the track with the five-time National Hare and Hound Champion and special guest Pro instructors by 6pm and will do a recap and group photo at the end of the session.
