Boise EnduroCross: Colton Haaker Wins Again

Cycle News Staff | November 6, 2016

Boise EnduroCross: Colton Haaker Wins Again: With just one round left in the 2016 AMA EnduroCross Championship, Colton Haaker extended his points lead to 14 over Cody Webb after taking the win at the Boise EnduroCross in Nampa, Idaho, November 5. It’s Haaker’s fifth win of the year.

Haaker was fast all night, winning his Heat race, the evening Hot Lap and eventually the Main event, though he struggled in the wood pit in every race, which almost cost him the victory.

Webb, Haaker’s closest rival in the championship and last round’s winner in Washington, suffered a couple of hard get-offs in the main but was still able to put pressure on Haaker late in the race, despite riding much of the race with bent handlebars, suffered in one of his crashes.

Haaker, on the Rockstar Husqvarna, took the checkers just 5.6 seconds ahead of FMF/KTM’s Webb, who was in 12th place after the first lap.

Third place went to Beta’s Kyle Redmond. He got off to a fast start and actually found himself in the lead when Haaker got hung up in the wood pile. Redmond held the point position until the sixth lap when Haacker got back around him, then gave up second to Webb a lap later. Redmond lost sight of the two leaders but still hung on to third for a spot on the podium, finishing about 48 seconds behind Webb.

South Carolina’s Trystan Hart had a great showing, riding his Husqvarna all the way up from 13th after the first lap to place fourth at the end of the race.

KTM rider Cory Graffunder rounded out the top five after passing Husqvarna’s Mike Brown late in the race.

Ty Tremaine (KTM), Ty Cullins (Beta), Geoff Aaron (GG) and Noah Kepple (KTM) completed the top 10.

Former EnduroCross champ Taddy Blazusiak had another tough night, pulling out of the race after crashing while running eighth. He ran as high as third on the third lap.

Canada’s Shelby Turner (KTM) claimed her sixth win of the year in the Women’s Main. Melissa Harten took second after leading into the final lap. Tarah Geiger (Honda) finished third.

style=text-align: justify;>The Baja Rally is the first and only FIM-style navigation rally raid in the Mexican State of Baja California. Modeled after the world famous Dakar Rally, the Baja Rally has been endorsed by federal, state and municipal governments as an “eco-adventure” racing competition because of its low impact on the environment and through cooperation with federal regulators. Four years since its inception, the Baja Rally is branded as a human experience designed to test racers’ stamina, skill and mechanical prowess.

ore the next race, and the crank broke. I had an old bike that Pastrana gave me seven years ago, so that’s what I raced.”

Brandy Richards, who is from Lake Havasu, is a 15-year veteran and in her third year as a WORCS Pro. Given that she’s only 19 that means she’s been racing since she was four! Richards won Saturday’s race, marking her third consecutive victory, but she had a hard crash in Sunday’s event, which ended her win streak while leading. She ended up fourth and is second in points despite missing the first round with a knee injury.

“I love the tracks and the atmosphere here in WORCS, and winning in your hometown is the best feeling,” said Richards. “In the second race, I was trying to pass a lapper, caught a soft spot on a berm and went over the bars hard. I’m really sore. I’m pretty disappointed, but I hope that I can come back better.”

Geiger
Tara Geiger won the Women’s Pro race on Sunday. It was her first win in WORCS.

Geiger won her first ever WORCS Pro Women’s race Sunday. She battled with Sik in both races, bringing back memories of racing her in motocross. She is in her first full season of WORCS competition.

“Tatum and I had some fun battles,” said Geiger of her victory. “I got past her early, and then let off a little too much and she passed me. She stalled at the finish line about halfway through and I took the lead for good there. It was a fun race. The track was getting really rough and the lappers were tough for the last 15 minutes, so it was about being smart and not make a silly mistake. She passed me in the lake section. It was kind of refreshing, actually.”

Brittany Gallegos put together a fourth-place finish in Saturday’s race, but a hard get off resulted in a DNF on Sunday.

“It happens to the best of us. We’ll take it for what it is and move on,” said Gallegos of her crash. “I went to hit one of the tables, hit a square edge and went right over the bars. I kept running, but the bike caught up to me and took me out. My leg is hurt pretty bad and my knee is pretty torn up, but we’ll have to see.”

    Dante
    Dante Oliveria was flying in the Pro2 Lites division.

    In Pro 2 Lites, RPM/KTM’s Dante Oliveria won his fourth consecutive race. Austin Serpa and Clayton Hengeveld rounded out the podium.

    Oliveria nabbed the holeshot and was never seriously challenged, but his race was nearly over before it started.

    “Maxxis saved the day,” said Oliveria. “I noticed I had a tire Mousse [inner tube] issue while going to the starting line and they took my tire off and changed it.”

    Serpa challenged Oliveria but faded late in the tough test. “I thought I had the holeshot, but Dante jumped in front of me,” said Serpa. “He put some time on me. I was slowly getting some of that time back, but, at the end, I was really looking for the checkers. It was a tough race.”

    brandy
    Brandy Richards topped Saturday’s Women’s Pro first moto.

    After a double-header weekend of racing at the Crazy Horse Campground for the WORCS Pro Women racers, Tatum Sik maintained her points lead after scoring two podium finishes. Brandy Richards won Saturday’s race and sits second in points. Tarah Gieger, Britney Gallegos and Lauren Woods round out the top five.

    Sik shook off a shoulder injury after falling in practice to finish third in Saturday’s race and second Sunday. She currently holds a 14-point lead over Richards in the Championship.

    “I went down hard,” said Sik. “I’m just glad to be on the podium. I wasn’t even sure I could ride, so to be able to ride that well, I’m stoked. It’s been a rough season. I had a great round at Taft and I’ve been struggling ever since. I had a huge crash at Primm, one at South Point and now one at Havasu. It’s been pretty tough, but I’ve managed to be on the podium every round.”

    Interestingly, she’s racing an eight-year old Suzuki RM-Z250 given to her by Travis Pastrana. “After my get off at Primm, we had to completely rebuild the bike,” said Sik. “I went to test it at Glen Helen the day before the next race, and the crank broke. I had an old bike that Pastrana gave me seven years ago, so that’s what I raced.”

    Brandy Richards, who is from Lake Havasu, is a 15-year veteran and in her third year as a WORCS Pro. Given that she’s only 19 that means she’s been racing since she was four! Richards won Saturday’s race, marking her third consecutive victory, but she had a hard crash in Sunday’s event, which ended her win streak while leading.
