While many of you will not be able to attend the televised X Games in LA this weekend, there are plenty of resources to enjoy the big weekend at the convenience of your couch. The biggest event of the Endurocross season, Enduro X, is set and ready to play out on Sunday evening at 9pm Eastern time. They're clearly saving the best for last.
In 2011, the inaugural Enduro X event was inducted into the annual Summer X Games program as the last event of the revolutionary weekend. Without a doubt, the introduction of Enduro X is one of the biggest events the off-road industry has seen. Sure the world has seen the stars of Motocross & Supercross make their mark on the world through X Games, but never has an off-road event of Enduro X's caliber been displayed for the entire World to see.
Aside from Supercross and Motocross, Enduro X had the largest live-audience ever for an off-road motorcycle event. Around 14,000 spectators watched the event inside the Staples center, and millions watched world-wide. For the majority, the event opened many eyes to the world of Endurocross and off-road. The element of surprise and sudden mistakes kept the stadium on the edge of their chairs (if they weren't already standing). Many were biased based on the strange new style off- road racing for the fact that it wasn't a speed-focused discipline. But obviously those who were not in favor have never raced a motorcycle on an Endurocross course.
