Xtinction 2010 – Canada’s First Extreme Hard Enduro – News Release
The inaugural edition of XTINCTION – Canada’s First Extreme Hard Enduro is in the books and was proven to be a premier Canadian event and one which is ready to accommodate a World Class Competition!
Starting with a gnarly two-hour qualifier through the Alberta Badlands, competitors were faced with extreme challenges fit to expire several of them as they came face to face with XTINCTION! As if the course which the Corner Grass Racing Team (CGRT) had prepared was not already enough of a challenge, Mother Nature came a calling with a steady downpour making the course nearly impassable!
Thirty competitors were able to complete the qualifying session and were fortunate enough to be greeted with sunny skies for the XTINCTION Showdown. They were tasked with another two hours in the saddle, during which time several of the competitors faced XTINCTION and were eliminated from the race!
In the end, Canadian Off-Road phenom Cory Graffunder (HUSQ) and American rival Kyle Redmond (KTM) put on a spectacular show and battled to the end with Graffunder squeaking out the win and taking home a healthy part of the $5000 CAD purse!
