John Dowd, who finished second overall at the 2005 Maxxis EnduroCross, has announced that he will be returning in 2006 to take on the top off-road racers in the world at the toughest indoor, off-road race in America.

"I had so much fun last year that I definitely want to come back for this year's race," explained Dowd, a former national motocross champion. "I had no idea what I was getting into last year ... I barely had time to ride the bike before the race, but it turned out to be a great event. It was a very technical and tough track, but it made for great racing."

David Knight was the overall winner in 2005, with Dowd finishing a few seconds behind in second place after battling it out with the young and up-and-coming Ricky Dietrich. "It was really no surprise to see John do so well," claims Eric Peronnard, co-promoter of the event. "A lot of the top motocrossers have a strong background in woods or trails riding. Combine that with their motocross skills and it makes for a perfect combination to ride EnduroCross."

The Maxxis EnduroCross takes place inside the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night November 18. There is a Qualifier Round on Friday, November 17 where the top ten riders on that day will compete on Saturday night against the best off-road racers in the world.
