The first round of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series is in the books, and what a night of racing it was! Reigning champ Taddy Blazusiak was knocked off his throne in an upset defeat at the hands of first-time winner Colton Haaker. Having finished on the podium before but never on the top step, Haaker got an excellent start in the main and rode a smooth, poised race to take the win. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Justin Soule’ landed in second after hounding Haaker for the duration of the race, although he was never able to make a pass stick. Coming from dead last, Blazusiak made a remarkable charge for the final podium spot, and while he was visibly unsatisfied the defending champion looked quick and aggressive on the track.
