Endurocross in Sacramento

Unlike Supercross or motocross, where getting the holeshot (the best start out of the gate) usually equates to placing high on the podium, Endurocross is a wholly different beast. The tracks feature many obstacles not unlike a professional motocross trials event, including (but most certainly not limited to): logs, rocky terrain, large over-sized tires and virtually anything that makes finishing a race near impossible. Folks expecting riders to fly by at warp speed and triple jumps will be sorely disappointed. However, those who enjoy a race that always includes lots of action, crashes and more inconsistency than imaginable will be pleased with this spectacle. This year’s race features amateur classes in addition to veterans, an awesome women’s class and, of course, a wicked assortment of national pros. One of the coolest things you can do at this event is walk the track (for an extra cost) to experience just how daunting the course is. Bring some extra cash for T-shirts and swag since this is one event you’ll want to share in bragging rights. Tickets start at $12.50 for kids and go as high as $45 (with VIP track walk). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the action starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. More details at Sleeptrainarena.com
