EnduroCross Championship Battle Tightens Up Heading into Penultimate Round

Round seven heads to Boise this weekend

FMF KTM’s Cody Webb took the win in Everett Washington to tighten up his fierce AMA EnduroCross Championship battle with Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker. It was his second win of the season and much needed as Haaker has already recorded four wins and still holds a ten point lead heading into the Boise, Idaho event this weekend.

With only two events remaining and Haaker riding amazing this season to take four wins and two second place finishes, Webb is going to need to keep the pressure on in Boise. These two riders have dominated the series so far in 2016 taking all of the wins available despite a strong field of competitors.

The battle for third is also very interesting Husqvarna’s Mike Brown currently holds a narrow four point lead over RPM KTM’s Ty Tremaine. Brown is now in his 40’s while Tremaine is just twenty years old and took his first ever AMA EnduroCross podium finish at the Everett event. Brown wants to prove he still belongs while Tremaine wants to prove it is now his time.
