Wardlow AB: The penultimate round of the Gieco EnduroCross Series took place in the Idaho Center near Boise, Idaho and provided the most technically difficult course of the season.

Wardlow AB: The eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains provided a beautiful venue for the Wildhorse Harescrambles. A 10km course of wet, slippery roots, and stump infested clear cuts challenged riders to keep themselves on two wheels.
Cole Dobovich ( Provost, AB ) holeshot the Pro class start, leading into the first lap while CGRT veteran rider, Shane Cuthbertson missed the kickstart lever on his bike and was dead last. Once settling down from the mistake on the start, Shane charged his way past the pack, taking the lead by the end of the first lap. Shane pushed hard, posting lap times one minute faster than second place finisher Ty McKenna ( KTM, A&E Racing and Marine ).
After 2 hours of pushing, Shane topped the field, followed by Ty, and Cole on the final podium position. “ A great effort by Shane, he’s been riding very well this season, and really liking the TE 300. And I’m very happy to see the young guys on the podium, learning from the veterans like Shane and applying those skills to their own racing”, states CGRT manager Lee Fryberger.
The junior member of the team, Cole Dobovich had this to say, “I’m felt a little uncomfortable with the loose logs in the clear cut, but its something I’ve got to work with and get more confident in so I can push harder. Otherwise my bike worked well, especially my suspension, very happy with Pro-Action Suspension.”
