“I’m excited to see the series continue to grow with focused efforts on what our sport’s community values most,” said Adam Hammock, EnduroCross Operations Manager, “we’re making the changes we believe are needed to elevate EnduroCross to the next level.”

“The AMA is looking forward to another great season of racing and working with the entire EnduroCross Team,” said Erek Kudla, AMA Off-Road Racing Manager, “The series returning to the Pacific Northwest will undoubtedly help continue the growth of EnduroCross and our sport.”

Who’s in it to win it?

Top of the list of course is five-time champion, Rockstar Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker will be back and aiming for his sixth AMA EnduroCross Championship, which would put him at the top of the list outright ahead of Taddy Blazusiak.

FactoryOne Sherco rider, Cody Webb, will be working hard to get back to fitness by then and take his fourth AMA EnduroCross championship following a disappointing SuperEnduro season last winter.

They will have some serious opponents in Trystan Hart and Cooper Abbott. Both were top contenders in 2021, with FMF Factory Racing KTM rider Hart getting sidelined midway through the series with an injury.

Since switching to FactoryONE Sherco, Cooper Abbott is a rider still on the up and after a confident runner-up finish overall in the 2021 series, he is a serious shout again this year.


Cory Graffunder and Max Gerston are no strangers to EnduroCross, nor the podium. Their veteran status, combined with the off-season shake-ups, might just be the ideal landscape for these two to be contenders for the championship.

It would be a mistake to rule out some of the young, up-and-coming talent that’s currently brewing as Hard Enduro grows stateside. We’ve seen the development of more than capable riders over the more recent years including: Ryder LeBlond, Will Riordan, and Spencer Wilton, and they will seek to build upon their experience to make a run at this year’s AMA championship. 

Plus, of course, there is alwasy the chance of a rider from Europe making their way across the pond.
