The GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championships Series is set to tear through Natomas at the Power Balance Pavilion on Saturday, June 9 for its first ever Northern California stop. EnduroCross is a thrilling and treacherous hybrid of Supercross, trials and enduro racing in which riders guide their bikes through gnarly obstacles like giant boulders, logs, tires, sand, mud, a water hole and more. For the series’ stop in Sacramento, Power Balance Pavilion will be transformed by master builders Schaefer Tracks who will use 1000 cubic yards of dirt, 100 tons of rock, 1000 feet of logs and more to create an extreme off-road race course indoors. The finished product is a grueling and physically demanding track that will take about 30 hours to build and will host some of the worlds best riders come race time. Keep an eye out on Northern California raised riders Colton Haaker (who enters the Sacramento stop as the points leader) and Cody Webb (currently sitting in fourth), both of whom are considering this stop their “hometown” race. Both have got their work cut out for them if they hope to dethrone Poland’s Taddy Blazusiak, the three-time GEICO EnduroCross champion. Opening ceremonies and racing start at 7:30 p.m. on June 9, 2012. Learn more at or at Do not miss what is undeniably the toughest racing on two wheels!
