The GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross series has added Seattle and Indianapolis to its 2010 off-road motorcycle racing schedule.
"Our studies suggest the two new markets ... will be key in helping further develop the already solid following for the sport of EnduroCross," said Mike Karsting, vice president of events at Source Interlink Media, in a press statement. "Off-road riding and racing is huge in the Northwest, and aligning GEICO EnduroCross with the USGP in Indianapolis will put EnduroCross in front of a new and sizeable group of two-wheel motorsports enthusiasts for us."
EnduroCross combines multiple off-road racing disciplines, such as desert enduro racing and cross-country racing, along with technical trials-style riding. An EnduroCross incorporates various elements of off-road racing into a Supercross-style setting, featuring rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, water holes and special obstacles.
The 2010 EnduroCross series will be aired on the Versus Network's "Lucas Motorsports Hour."
Here's the 2010 EnduroCross schedule:
- July 17, Las Vegas, The Orleans Arena
