Something new … EnduroCross

Published August 18th, 2004

EnduroCross is new in the USA. The first one will be November 27, 2004 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.



What is EnduroCross? EnduroCross is an off-road race held entirely
indoors. The racing format is similar to a supercross – starting gate,
class heats and a series of qualifying rounds with riders transferring
to the main. Obstacles include boulders, rock fields, poles, sand,
jumps and water sections similar to the most difficult sections found
in off-road events all over the world. EnduroCross is an invitation
only event where the top off-road racers from America and Europe will
be invited to attend.



Eric Peronnard, co-promoter of the event (he’s also the man responsible
for inventing the original US Open of Supercross in 1998) says “This is
really the ultimate test of skills on a difficult enduro-style track,
mixed in with a supercross format. The concept has proven very
successful in Europe, drawing large crowds and providing tremendous
race action. It is truly nonstop entertainment. I have been watching
the past five years how it works, and it is very exciting.”



Tim Clark, co-promoter with Eric says “The off-road industry needs a
shot in the arm, and this event provides exactly what the off-road
industry is looking for: exposure. Where else can a fan watch an entire
off-road race and see close-up how difficult and exciting that style of
racing can be? Compared to other forms of racing, this is spectacular
to watch, especially for the fans.”
