For the first time in the state's history, AMA extreme enduro racing came to Texas. The Rev Limiter State Championship was held at Rocky Ridge Ranch with all proceeds benefiting the MS Association of America. Event Promoter Mark Koch, Texas resident and veteran enduro racer began marking the 7.5-mile rocky course mid-summer 2016. “We really wanted to bring extreme enduro to Texas and add another quality event for the sport” Mark told us.

Frigid temperatures along with constant precipitation on the rocky hillsides created a perfect storm for the competitors all weekend, the Rev Limiter championship did not disappoint in creating a worthy race course. $10,000 Pro purse money lured in pros such as Jordan Ashburn and Mitch Carvolth, who battled it out all day Sunday on a very wet and treacherous course. In the end it was Ashburn on the top step of the podium, Carvolth in 2nd and Quinn Wentzel in 3rd.

A section known as “Root Canal” looked like a scene from a war movie most of the pro moto 1. The large, wet flat rocks created an impossible surface that left most racers teaming up and helping each other rather than competing.Photo by Jacob Souder

“Dirty dogs”. The untrained observer might perceive the constant physical struggle and the occasional use of foul language as an unpleasant experience. It was quite the contrary though as most of the racers were wearing big smiles under the helmet.Photo by Jacob Souder
