Rider Profiles

Taddy Blazusiak

The EnduroCross two time champ started to turn heads when he decided to race in the 2007 Erzberg Rodeo and won with easy and on a barrowed bike. But it has been in the last few years that Blazusiak really made himself a name as a champ. With his two AMA Endurocross titles and as an Indoor Enduro World Champion, this Pole is on top. This year, Blazusiak has already got the X Game gold medal under his belt and has shown that he is ready to defend his title for the third year in a row.

Mike Brown

Tennessee born and raised, Mike Brown started winning on a motorcycle in 1994. Brown managed to follow up this performance in 2000 and in 2001, he won the AMA 125cc MX National Championship. In 2009, Brown took home the WORCS Championship. Last season, Brown took home tenth in the EnduroCross despite having some decent finishes. Now, Brown is on the heals of Taddy Blazusiak in hopes of taking home the 2011 EnduroCross Championship. Taking home the silver medal at the X Games, Brown showed that he's still got some serious racing left in him and is here to win.

Justin Soule

Standing in third place at the X Games podium isn't the only thing that shows that Justin Soule will be a true competitor in this year's EnduroCross season. With six WORCS National Championship titles, 3 MRANN Championships and 3 Nevada State Off-Road Championships, Soule is ready to take on the EnduroCross again in hopes of improving upon his third place win last season. Will this be the year that Soule takes the championship title from Blazusiak?

Geoff Aaron

There's no denying that trials riders have got something special going on when they hit the EnduroCross track. So it was no surprise when this 10-time AMA National Trials champ (among a whole slew of other wins) took second in last season's EnduroCross. And while Aaron spends a great deal of time traveling around the country in order to promote his sport, he's now taking the time to once again hit the EnduroCross tracks and try and take the title. But after only getting 5th in the X Games, will the renowned trials rider settle for second place in EnduroCross for the third year in a row?

Cody Webb

Cody Webb from beautiful Santo Cruz, California has spent many a year under the tutelage of 10-time AMA Nationals Champ Geoff Aaron. And Webb shows to have learned a thing or two as he took the AMA National Trials Championship last year. Along with his trials title, Webb took ninth in last year's EnduroCross but finished third in the last two rounds. This season, Cody Webb is back to try and climb the EnduroCross ranks after getting 9th place in the X Games. This rider is one to watch as he continues improve. If he keeps his eye on the ball, who knows what he will achieve.

Kevin Rookstool

Competing since 2007, this young racer hails from Klamath Falls, Oregon and is once again joining the ranks of the EnduroCross. Taking 8th place in the series last year, Taylor showed little improvement at the X Games and only got 9th. With tons of great competitors in the line up for this year, Rookstool has a whole lot of learning to do. But with his best win being 3rd in Indianapolis last year, Rookstool shows that he can really get it right at times and will prove to be interesting to watch this season.

Graham Jarvis

Nicknamed the "silent assassin," this Englishman has had recent success in both Trials and Enduro racing. After winning Hells Gate, The Tough One and the Red Bull Romaniacs this year, Jarvis has decided to try his hand at EnduroCross. And with his background in trials, there isn't much doubt that this rider will be a huge threat to Championship title holder Taddy Blazusiak and some serious competition for all of the other top contenders trying to take his place.
