Malcolm Smith Named Grand Marshal for Ontario EnduroCrossFriday, September 14, 2012 | 2:10 PM
Irvine, CA – Malcolm Smith is a motorcycling legend that helped introduce the sport of off-road motorcycling to the world via his role in the iconic movie, On Any Sunday. His infectious enthusiasm for the sport combined with amazing talent on a motorcycle and continued involvement as a rider and owner of an impressive motorcycle dealership is still showcasing the sport to new and old participants. The GEICO AMA EnduroCross team is honored to name Malcolm as the Grand Marshal for this weekend’s Ontario, California round and have him on hand to welcome the fans and riders.
With a tight point’s battle shaping up and three different winners in three races thus far this season, Malcolm and the fans will be in for a great show. Taddy Blazusiak, the defending GEICO EnduroCross champion has an 8 point lead over Mike Brown, his KTM teammate that won the X Games Enduro X Gold. Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert just wrapped up the WORCS Championship and he is a serious threat for the championship, 12 points back in third. Beta’s Cody Webb is also twelve points back and Husky’s Cory Graffunder, the X Games Bronze medalist is only 16 back in fifth.
Add in a full night of racing with the Open Amateurs, Vet, TrialsCross and Women’s classes as well as the Baja Designs Night Race and you can expect a full night of great action.
