X Games 18 Enduro X Qualifying Process and
Irvine, CA (April 26, 2012) – The X Games is the pinnacle of action sports and Enduro X will again be a major part the competition in 2012. The event will also serve as round three of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross by Lucas Oil championship series for the expert riders. The riders will be selected to compete in the X Games Enduro X based on the following qualification process:
The top female riders will also get their own class at Enduro X with Maria Forsberg, Tarah Geiger and Kacy Martinez, the Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist respectively from 2011 confirmed to return. Like the men, the top female non-qualified finishers from the Las Vegas and Sacramento events will also be invited along with a few Wild Card invites (Germany’s Steffi Laier is already a confirmed Women’s class Wild Card invitee).
If you want to see the riders that will be mixing up at X Games 18, you can go to the Staples Center on Sunday, July 1st or catch many of those same riders at any of the other seven GEICO AMA EnduroCross events in 2012.
If you are planning a trip to see the Monster Energy Supercross finals in Las Vegas, then make sure that you come in a day early to catch the GEICO AMA EnduroCross by Lucas Oil championship opener and X Games Qualifier. If you have never watched one in person, you will be blown away by the obstacles and intense racing action.
