Three additional riders also qualified for the X Games Enduro X during the Daytona GEICO EnduroCross opener in Daytona Beach, Florida, this past weekend. Factory Beta’s Kyle Redmond earned a spot with a third-place finish in the main. Kevin Rookstool was the second rider to earn an invite to X Games Austin, with an eighth-place finish during a weekend in which he raced EnduroCross on Friday, Supercross on Saturday, and the GNCC on Sunday. And the third rider to qualify was 16-year-old Ty Cullins, who won his heat race to make the main during his first pro EnduroCross race.

Three more riders will qualify for X Games Enduro X at each of the two upcoming GEICO EnduroCross events in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Las Vegas, Nevada.

The next round of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series will take place at Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Saturday, March 21.
