We will go in-between most of the jumps on the track ; there will still be a few jumps that we hit but not too many .
For the third round , we ’ ll be at Dreamville MX in North Carolina which will be another kind of firm sand type of surface . That will be a new venue as well ; they have trails there now but we ’ ll lay out a new course in the woods . We ’ ll do a similar type of thing there as well where we run out on motocross track a little bit but we ’ ll mostly do grass track there .
Our fourth round will be at the same site where they have the Cherokee National Enduro in Greensboro Georgia . A lot of that is familiar to many of our riders .
We can ’ t make the announcement on our fifth round just yet ; we ' re still waiting on a couple of details to get worked out .
The sixth round will be at a newer track and trail facility in Fairmont , West Virginia , called Track 93 just north of Morgantown .
Finally , we ’ ll wrap up the season down at Harleywood , in Bristol , Virginia , on Father ’ s Day weekend . It ’ ll be the same location where we went for the 2021 season .
All eight rounds will be held between January and June . We ' re excited because we were only six rounds last year only had about five weeks to put it all together .
All of our properties this year are very unique , which is awesome . It keeps it interesting .
BEING A NEW SERIES , HOW DO YOU FEEL YOU WERE ABLE TO ATTRACT SO MANY BIG-NAME RIDERS TO YOUR SERIES ?
I think they really wanted to make sure they saw a sprint enduro series continue because they love the format as well . I know these guys ; i competed with them at the previous sprint enduro series , and at times ran some pretty decent times . They knew who I am and what I ’ m about and I think they probably understood that here ' s a chance to go out and race on a course that a racer similar to us is putting together . I think they probably appreciated that .
YOU ' RE AN AMA ELEVATED REGIONAL SPRINT ENDURO SERIES NOW . CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THAT MEANS ?
We are now going to give out an AMA regional Number One plate at the end of the year . Right now , if you want to race at the highest national level in sprint enduro , you come race US Sprint Enduro . The AMA is really happy with the way we did things this past year ; 2021 was our probation year , and we knew right away that we wanted to be at the top . We ’ ve been doing sprint
