The endurocross title fight between Colton Haaker and Cody Webb comes to an end in Nampa, Idaho.
Finally finished my edit after work and personal issues got in the way. Bummed the season is over but I got some great shots and tried out a new camera setup for the final round.

Been waiting, Thanks!

Great action shots, you followed Cody through the No Joke lane that was awesome. The close ups through the firewood were so good you could see the details. Overall great video and edit, thanks again.

The racing action is off the chart in this sport! When it is not elbow to elbow, there is water flying, insane log jumps and the log matrix. What an action packed video, sorry folks but so much more exciting than most SX races. Congratulation Cody the outgoing champ with a nice win, and of course to Colton Haaker the Champ once again.

I was in Boise visiting my daughter and we went to the race. There's usually alot of "incidents" in endurocross but the carnage got so great during the pro LCQ that they actually red flagged the race as it spilled over into two lanes of the track.

We were sitting trackside right where Webb went down during he and Hakar's bracket race final. Cody smacked his head pretty hard on the tree trunk marking the inside of the turn. I thought he rang his bell as he seemed a little slow getting up but he did resume racing and went down and cleared the double jump (real impressive) that only he was jumping so he must have been ok. Perhaps he realized when he went down that the championship just slipped one more Point away? He was clearly the best at Boise and Hakar stayed clean and did what he needed to do to wrap up the title. Great racing and we were glad we went.

The Red Flag was actually in the SIDRA group challenge. Not the pro lcq. Pretty sure the old CR500 in that class was the crowd favorite. LOL

Yeah, the SIDRA group was a disaster. There weren't any red flags in the pro lcq.
Thanks everyone for the kind words! It was tough being on the sidelines this year but I was glad it let me shootsome more content than last year.

Ok, an amateur race explains the carnage better smile. One guy was hauled out past us on a stretcher with a lower leg injury I think (he was sitting up). Another guy came up from the pits to spectate with his arm taped to his chest and another one was in a sling. A few others were hobbling around. Interesting stuff (as a spectator).

Thanks Danno, good to get a link to it since almost nobody gets that station.

I thought the coverage and camera work was really good this year! Just wish they didn’t get so many facts wrong.

The guy one the stretcher popped his knee out. He was doing ok but couldn't put any weight on his leg. Not sure on the other ones. Some sore and beat up guys in that class for sure.
