Taylor Robert Leads the E3 Spark Plugs
The battle for top young rider in EnduroCross is close!
Irvine, CA (September 30, 2011) – The E3 Spark Plugs EnduroCross Junior Championship recognizes the top young riders in one of the toughest forms of Off Road motorcycle racing. Riders must be 21 years of age or younger to be eligible and Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert currently leads a tight three rider battle leading into this weekend’s Denver round. Robert currently has 23 points while Oregon’s Keith Sweeten has 20 and is closely followed by Zip Ty Husqvarna’s Ryan Sandoval. All three riders have been showing steady improvement during the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series so you can expect that any one of these riders could emerge with the Junior Championship.
“It is really awesome to follow the up and coming riders of EnduroCross and see who may be the next riders in line to challenge the established stars of the sport” stated Lance Bryson, the Director of Sales and Marketing for EnduroCross. “It is easy to forget that these riders don’t have the years of racing experience that many of the riders that they are competing against so it is great that E3 helped created the Junior Championship three years ago” he continued.
So come out to Denver’s National Western Complex arena this weekend to cheer on the top young riders. Like all EnduroCross events, the pits are open to the public for free all day and it is also free to watch the daytime qualifiers as the riders battle to earn a spot in the night program. The Expert riders ride practice and do a single lap against the clock to determine their starting positions during the midafternoon so there is a lot of action all day.
