EnduroCross Announces Rookies Class Instruction With Destry Abbott
Three rounds of the 2014 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship will feature a special rookies class led by none other than Destry Abbott. These one-hour, on-track instructional sessions will take place on the Friday nights before the Sacramento, Atlanta and Salt Lake City events. So the first one is scheduled for Friday, June 20th prior to the Sacramento event.
The EnduroCross Rookies classes are open to riders who have not raced an EnduroCross event. It is open to all brands of motorcycles and Amateur, Vet and Women riders are welcome to participate. Riders can sign up online at https://secure.tracksideonlineresults.com/mmsx_ex/index.asp?event=27&l=0 and select the “Rookie (Beginner) class”. Entered riders will meet at Destry Abbott’s DA8training.com/Monster Energy/Kawasaki race rig in the pits at 5:30pm. They’ll be on the track with the five-time National Hare and Hound Champion and special guest Pro instructors by 6pm and back to Destry’s pits for a recap.
“I’m so happy to be able to get on the track with EnduroCross rookies and show them some of the tips and tricks I use every race to manage the challenging race courses,” said Destry Abbott. “The GEICO AMA EnduroCross events are like no other form of racing, and it’s great the organizers understand first-time EnduroCross riders can really benefit from some additional track time.”
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.
The next round of GEICO AMA EnduroCross is June 6 as EnduroCross heads to the X Games in Austin, Texas followed by the third round in Sacramento, California on June 21st. The 2014 schedule will see two new rounds of racing held in Atlanta, Georgia and Salt Lake City, Utah as the cities host their first EnduroCross events. The traditional EnduroCross finals in November will now be held Nov. 22 in Ontario, California.
