Idaho Endurocross RD 6

No surprise who wins...  He makes it look easy.. And they need to change the cover pic of this vid to an active rider at least. :bonk: :smirk:

About 57:20 Juan comes up short into the water jump . Ouch

 

 

And of course WildWally doing his thing. :thumbsup:

Yeah, it really kind of sucks that Haaker is out.....makes it uneventful.  Still, it's always fun watching the amateurs, women, and the vets.......and of course Wally.

I went and checked it out last night.  It was pretty cool, first one for me and the family.

We really like going to those.  We're normally in there from about 10am on until they kick us out for track mods, then on to dinner and back by 730pm.

Another view of Wally sending it during hotlaps. The guy never ceases to amaze.

Unless Webb is running through it... then it looks like any of us mere mortals could do it!

It's definitely nothing like supercross.  But, the stadiums are tiny, so you're really close.  I've been watching supercross and motocross since I was in high school, but since I moved to Idaho this is the closest I could get.  :thumbsup:  

Interesting, looks like he wasn't clearing the pumpkins on that lap.  ;)

For sure, didn't want to sound like the event is boring, just the telecast and insufferable female announcer with pseudo pro wrestling warble.

 

I would like to say Abbot should give the other guys a break...

ArenaCross is making a stop here in the spring. I'm not sure what I think about arenacross...

The coverage is pretty bad... kind of like a mix between ArenaCross and the MXGPs. Fortunately you can't really hear her down on the track and with ear plugs in, you can't hear her at all... thank heavens.

Cody Webb Storms to Boise EnduroCross Win

Graffunder and Tremaine round out Boise EnduroCross podium

BOISE, ID – November 5, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Cody Webb dominated the Boise EnduroCross to take his fifth straight win. The FMF KTM Factory Racing rider had a nearly flawless event, setting the fastest hot lap time, winning the qualifier and taking the main event. SRT Offroad backed Cory Graffunder was Webb’s closest rival on the night and won the bracket race and finished second in the main. Ty Tremaine finished third for the second consecutive race despite a bad start.

Webb got the night started off strong with a win in the Super EnduroCross gate pick qualifier. Graffunder served notice that he was ready for a good result by finishing second and Cooper Abbott put in a strong result for third. In addition to determining the main event gate picks, this race sets the match ups for the bracket races.

The top 12 riders face off in the single lap brackets races and this, again, provided a lot of excitement. Webb and Graffunder each won two rounds to face off in the final. Graffunder managed to beat Webb to the first turn and put in a flawless lap to take the win, despite heavy pressure all the way to the finish, and earn a bonus point in the championship.

To start the main event, Webb fought hard to take the lead exiting the first turn and was closely followed by Graffunder, Geoff Aaron, Cooper Abbott and Kyle Redmond. Webb rode a flawless main event despite an extremely difficult wood pit and No Joke Lane. He steadily pulled away from Graffunder to take his fifth straight main event win.

Graffunder had an equally solid race to maintain second for all but one lap when he took the No Joke Lane but he was quickly back into second. He could not match Webb’s pace, but it was a great result considering he missed round two with a badly broken thumb less than six weeks ago.

The fight for third was exciting as Aaron and Abbott battled for the position in the early laps until Abbott had problems. Then Aaron crashed in the No Joke Lane on lap eight and Tremaine made a bold pass as he was already committed to the lane on the same lap. Trystan Hart passed both riders but then relinquished the position back to Tremaine when he took the No Joke Lane on lap ten. This gave Tremaine the final podium spot despite completing lap one in thirteenth. Hart, currently second in the points, held on for fourth.

Beta’s Max Gerston had a pretty quiet night but came out with a fifth-place finish on the tough Boise track. Aaron recovered for sixth position. Abbott finished seventh and fellow Yamaha rider Mason Ottersberg finished eighth. Redmond finished in ninth after a pretty tough night that included a big crash in the qualifying race. Ty Cullins rounded out the top ten on his Beta.

Joan Pau Segura, Eric Rhoten, Noah Kepple, Wally Palmer and Quinn Wentzel finished 11th to 15th respectively.

Cody Webb – 1st Place:
“This was definitely the toughest track we’ve had this year. Boise always has a ridiculous wood pit and I fell down there five or six times in practice. I fell more in those first two practice sessions than I have all year. I really struggled early today and didn’t let the track come to me. In the Qualifier I rode great. Graffunder got me in the Bracket Race but it was a great race and good show for the fans. In the main, I got the holeshot and felt awesome. I had two little bobbles and a couple issues with the lappers in the wood pit where I was forced to just take my time. It was probably the loosest I rode all year and it feels great to get the win.”

Cory Graffunder – 2nd Place:
“Tonight was probably the most incident free, smoothest and cleanest race I’ve ever had. I attribute it to my good riding early in the day that set me up with a good gate pick that put me ahead of a lot of carnage and let me just click off laps. I did two laps and had a big enough gap to do the No Joke Lane, got that out of the way when I was nice and fresh and made it through there without incident. Then, I kept clicking off laps. I don’t want to say it was the easiest race because the track was difficult but, as far as adversity and making mistakes, it definitely was the easiest I’ve had. It was clean, start to finish.”

Ty Tremaine – 3rd Place:
“It was not an easy one tonight. I’ve been working hard all year and the beginning of the season has kind of sucked, to be honest. I haven’t felt like I’m riding where I’m supposed to. I was fastest in the second practice so I knew I had the speed. Cody and Colton have always been so far out front and my goal is, if I don’t beat them, I want to be really close. Tonight, that was my goal again but, right off the bat, nothing went right. People were crashing right in front of me and it was a nightmare. Coming around the first lap I was in dead last place. So, I just started charging forward and made passes. I found myself in fourth behind Trysan Hart and then I took the No Joke lane behind Geoff Aaron because I knew he’d make it and then he ended up crashing! I don’t know how I made it through but I passed Geoff and got out of there, and then Hart took the No Joke lane and I made it into third. I just stayed there, thankfully. It was the hardest race I’ve ever done.”

I like the idea of that.  Was it just one of those things guys had to do just once?  @DEMI, you really have to check it out live to have an appreciation for it.  As JCM said, you are really close to the action, there's not a bad seat in the house.  when we go to the Vegas race, the seats are pretty expensive compared to the one in Ontario so we just bite the bullet and pick the section of the track that we know will be good for mayhem and general chaos (you can see the track layout before you buy your seats months in advance) and then we buy seats right on the rail.  Honestly, we've had to duck before from roost.  They do a good job of protecting you from that, but still shit happens. I hate to say it, but when the women race it it's even more entertaining.  Those girls are super hero to get around that track with sub 28 inch inseams.  You may laugh because they fall a lot, quite spectacularly sometimes, but most on here could not make it through a lap at half their pace.

In the Vet class?  No, he should absolutely be out there doing his thing.  If the others don't like it, tough.  He is raising the bar for the entire class.  Kurt Nichol used to run circles around the class before Destry.

idk, seems to be pretty lopsided. Good for him however.

That's exactly right.  Does Nichol still race the vet class?
