The track for the opening round of the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship, fueled by Monster Energy and presented by Lucas Oil is taking shape on the floor of the Orleans Arena. The series kicks off on Friday night in Las Vegas, a day before the Monster Energy Supercross finals.
Right off the start racers will launch off the top of two sea containers—an elevated twist on the all-important holeshot. Those containers serve as a two lane tunnel that the riders will navigate through each lap as well. The world's best off-road racers will be challenged by a huge fire-wood pit leading into a gnarly rock section, which ends with a U-turn. Follow that up with a pond, massive log pile in a first ever Pro Only lane and an elevated rock turn leading into the matrix—a devilishly spaced multiple log section—just before the finish line. The inaugural track for the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross truly crams an entire day's worth of obstacles into every lap.
Check out the track map and teaser shot of the nearly completed track.
The Lucas Oil Productions team will again be producing one hour shows for the eight AMA EnduroCross events that will air on MAVtv. Check out www.MAVtv.com for more information.
Las Vegas will host the opening round of EnduroCross on Friday, May 2, during the Monster Energy Supercross finals weekend. Atlanta, Georgia and Salt Lake City, Utah will host first ever EnduroCross events in 2014 and the X Games Enduro X event in Austin, Texas, also will be included as a points-paying event for the GEICO AMA EnduroCross championship. The traditional EnduroCross finals in November will now be held Nov. 22 in Ontario, California.
