In 2013, the DPS Technical team will be participating at select EnduroCross events. Our program will focus upon developing our overall program. We will be providing technical assistance to other teams and riders during the season.
Numerous “Test & Tune” practice sessions will be held in Devore, California at Glen Helen Raceway and other select locations. Our development and practice sessions will be public and we will announce our schedule on the DPS Technical face book page. We encourage people to visit us trackside. We can be found in the pit area proudly working under the American flag.
We invite people to check out EnduroCross in person. The events are good “family fun” and the pits feature easy access to all of the teams. Visitwww.endurocross.com for more information.
EnduroCross tracks incorporate various elements of extreme off road racing into a Supercross-style setting, including rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, a water-hole…and even a few special obstacles like giant tires thrown in! Known as the “toughest racing on two wheels,” this indoor off road racing will certainly keep you on your feet. For the seven EnduroCross events, be sure to log-on to www.motorsportshour.com for local air dates/times for the Lucas Motorsports Hour on the Versus network.

EnduroCross has quickly become recognized as the most exciting and entertaining form of motorcycle racing in America. Introduced to the states in 2004 as a single, stand alone event, the Maxxis National EnduroCross grew to a three-round series in 2007. To celebrate its success in 2008, GEICO EnduroCross expanded to a six-round series playing to key markets across the United States.
