Irvine, CA (October 26, 2012) – For the first time, the girls have their own multi round championship series as part of 2012 GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by Lucas Oil. And this weekend’s Boise, Idaho event will be round four of that five event battle to be the top female EnduroCross racer.
Irvine, CA (July 17, 2012) – MVP Racing has joined the GEICO EnduroCross series as the presenting sponsor of the timed Hot Laps that determine the gate picks for the Expert heat races. The hot laps put the top 30 riders on the track one at a time in reverse order of the current series point standings. The riders are forced to tackle the incredibly tough obstacles for a single lap against the clock. The top three riders earn the first pick in the three heat races that kick off the racing for the experts. Since there are 30 riders competing for just 11 spots in the main event during the night show, gate pick and a good start are extremely important to avoiding the chaos that ensues when the pack hits the rocks, logs, pond and other obstacles. Perhaps more important though is the bragging rights and confidence that comes with putting down a good lap time.

Graff captured the X Games Bronze Medal in Men’s EnduroX at the start of July, and after three rounds, the former Xtinction champion, is sitting in 5th place overall with 53 points, a mere 4 points of Taylor Robert and Cody Webb’s tie for 3rd and 4th.
