Husqvarna rider Mike Brown continues to improve in the AMA EnduroCross Series finishing in fourth place this weekend at Salt Lake City Utah, the first time the competition has been hosted here.

Brown liked the fast course in the Energy Solutions Arena, setting the hot lap during afternoon qualifiers and leading the early laps of the main event after capturing the holeshot.

“I started out good again today with the hot lap,” Brown commented. “My heat race went good – I was battling with Taddy [Blazusiak]. In the main event, I got the holeshot and led the first few laps so that was good.”

Brown, riding his FC 350 was out in front for the first four laps of the main before being passed by eventual winner Cody Webb. He hung onto a strong second place until the final laps when Blazusiak squeezed past. Then a hang-up in the rock section just before the white flag also allowed Taylor Robert to get past. But Brown stayed ahead of Colton Haaker to collect fourth for the night.

“Each time I’m on the track I’ve gotten better,” said Brown. “So next week should hopefully be even better. I’d like to get on the podium and I’d like to win a race this year.”

Spanish rider Sandra Gomez took to the fast Energy Solutions Arena track in Salt Lake City last weekend and pulled off a big win in the Women’s division of the AMA EnduroCross.

Her first career AMA EnduroCross victory came after battling Tarah Gieger for the lead, and riding consistent laps all the way to the finish. The key to the race proved to be getting through the rock section without making mistakes, which Gomez was able to do on every lap aboard her TC 125.

”This is my first victory in EnduroCross; I’m very happy!” Gomez exclaimed. “I would like to say thanks to Husqvarna and everyone who helped me come here. This was awesome!”

There are three rounds remaining in the AMA EnduroCross Championship, with the next race coming next weekend on Saturday, October 18 in Everett, Washington.
