EnduroCross Riders to go Worldwide with ESPN X Games
Brazil, Spain and Germany to join Los Angeles X Games

Irvine, CA (December 11, 2012) – Following the great success of Enduro X at the last two Los Angeles X Games, ESPN has been working on plans to take some of the top EnduroCross riders to participate at three new international locations; Foz, Brazil, Barcelona Spain and Munich Germany. The three events will feature both men’s and women’s classes. A select number of AMA EnduroCross Championship riders (number to be confirmed) will be invited to travel to those events and compete with the best riders from each of those continents.

Eric Peronnard, the creator of EnduroCross and ESPN Enduro X sport organizer stated: “This is an unbelievable opportunity ESPN is offering to the world’s top off road riders. In my wildest dreams I could not have seen such an opportunity arise. X Games has elevated the world of Enduro to unthinkable levels and now we will have the possibility to shine four times a year on several continents.”
