Gary Sutherlin, the 2017 WORCS and National Hare and Hound champion, and Jordan Ashburn, one of the top GNCC racers, will both cross over to test their skills at EnduroCross this coming weekend. The final round of the EnduroCross series will take place in Ontario, California, tomorrow, November 18, and these two riders will jump into the deep end of Super EnduroCross class.

Gary Sutherlin won both the AMA National Hare and Hound and WORCS championships on his Purvines DA8 Yamaha in 2017. He will be at the EnduroCross finals this weekend to see how he stacks up against the top indoor off-road racers.

Sutherlin, a Montana native who now lives in California, has had a great season already, with two major championships. He was a regular EnduroCross rider for several years before changing his focus to chase other championships. The Purvines/ DA8-backed Yamaha rider has had little time to practice EnduroCross, so he will be digging deep into his memory bank to shoot for a good result in Ontario.

Jordan Ashburn has had a solid season on his Factory Beta in 2017. The Tennessee native will be at the EnduroCross finals this weekend looking for a good result.

Ashburn is a Tennessee native who has raced the GNCC series for several years. With the support of Beta USA, Ashburn garnered several top-five GNCC XC1-class finishes in 2017. He also took multiple wins in the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series and finished second in the championship. This will be Ashburn’s second-ever EnduroCross race, but he is motivated to learn quickly and earn a spot in the Super EnduroCross main event.

These two riders will join a stacked field of EnduroCross regulars who always put on a great show.

The pits are open to the public all day, and there will be a Pit Party starting at 5 p.m. You can get up close and meet the riders and see their bikes. Opening ceremonies will start at 7:30 p.m.

The Ontario EnduroCross will also include a Friday night Destry Abbott DA8 training session on the track. The two-hour EnduroCross training session is very hands-on, with several of the top Pro riders assisting Destry in providing instruction on how to tackle the obstacles. The class is open to all riders (even those not competing at the Ontario event). For the $100 entry fee, you will learn how to tackle the difficult obstacles found on tough trails and EnduroCross tracks. This will be limited to the first 20 entries, so get your entry in before it sells out.
