Challenging track planned for the Staples Center! – News Release
Irvine, CA (June 1, 2011) - The GEICO EnduroCross team is thrilled about the opportunity to showcase this very exciting sport during X Games 17 at the Staples Center. Schaefer Tracks, the official EnduroCross track builders, will construct a very technical track that will challenge the best Off Road motorcycle riders in the world. As is common for an EnduroCross track, it will feature rocks, logs, sand, a pool, tractor tires and loose logs that all contribute to nonstop action and unpredictable racing.
“The X Games fans will be in for a real treat just watching the riders negotiate the obstacles and seeing them race head to head over those obstacles is often mind blowing” stated Eric Peronnard, the creator of EnduroCross. “As the water starts to get spread out onto the logs and rocks, it becomes almost impossible to maintain any consistency” he continued. All of this action will be captured by ESPN cameras for the first time ever as part of the X Games, which will only add to the desire to win for the riders. Make sure you get your tickets or plan to watch the event live on ESPN on Sunday, July 31, 2011.
Tickets for X Games 17 will be available for purchase June 23 at all Ticketmaster locations and the box office at STAPLES Center.
EnduroCross tracks incorporate various elements of extreme off road racing into a supercross-style setting, including rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, a water-hole… and even a few special obstacles like giant tires thrown in! Known as the “toughest racing on two wheels,” this indoor off road racing will certainly keep you on your feet. Don’t miss your chance to see GEICO AMA EnduroCross “Live”. ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC will combine to telecast 25 hours of live X Games 17 competition, which will include Enduro X.
