Second in the 2011 Championship and now it is time to win – News Release
Irvine, CA (April 20, 2012) – Mike Brown is ready to win an EnduroCross main event in 2012. Five podium finishes led to second in the 2011 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship, presented by Lucas Oil. And if it were not for Taddy Blazusiak, his KTM teammate, Brown would likely have several wins already. But after three years of trying, he has yet to stand on the top step of the podium at EnduroCross. 2012 may just be the year to change that as he has proven to have the pure speed necessary with several heat race wins and fast times during the qualifying hot laps.
“I improved my consistency in 2011 to get second in the championship. Now I want a win” Brown said when asked about his outlook on the 2012 season. So if you are looking for somebody to break the Taddy Blazusiak streak in Las Vegas on Friday, May 4th, look no further than Mike Brown on the FMF KTM.
If you are planning a trip to see the Supercross finals in Las Vegas, then make sure that you come in a day early to catch the GEICO AMA EnduroCross 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.
