KTM is bringing him to fill in for Cody Webb who is out with a knee injury. He has been a top performer everywhere he goes and I'd love to see him stuff Colton into the cheap seats.

To bad there is only 3 races. My son who is almost 7 has been to one every year of his life, but not this year. Maybe they’ll bump it up again next year.

Super excited to see the 111 back in the US plus doing WESS with some hard enduro and Super Enduro, I'm sure. He came out of retirement in better shape than ever with guns blazing. And he's still got it as he was in the running for the Super Enduro title right up till the last round.

I'm nowhere close to one of the EX rounds but if anyone can land me a poster or even better a jersey I'd be eternally grateful. I've got a couple of highly sought after MX jerseys to choose from that I would trade for a Taddy jersey.

Great news!

I've never been a Taddy fan but I'd love to see him put the beat down on Haaker this year!

I'm taking Tristan Hart as a dark horse for the championship though!

I'm very curious to see which bike Taddy runs for Endurocross. In the past he has ran a 350 SX-F, 250 SX-F, 350XC-F and a 250XC-F, I believe. There's also a chance he runs a 300 two stroke but I highly doubt it as Taddy has always been comfortable switching between 2 and 4 strokes for the EX/Super Enduro races and the extreme races.

Read the link, he's riding a 350

Yeah, just saw that. Though I doubt he's riding an EXC in the States. That's never been the case. Either an XC or SX. But either way, smart choice on the 350.

It’s says EXC because it’s a PDS bike. However I’ve seen the bikes up close and it’s far from a EXC! More like a SX with a PDS frame.

It’ll be interesting. The last year Taddy raced here was 2016 and it didn’t go well. He clearly looked like he was over it and didn’t want to be there. After his short retirement it seems he’s much more enthused and back riding in top form. He and Haaker should pretty much be the 1-2 guys.

Trystan Hart needs another couple years and he’ll be there for sure. As it sits it should be he and Ty Tremaine battling for the final podium spot.

I wish they could add a few East Coast rounds. There are a lot of enclosed arenas where it would work. Bummer.

Taddy's last year racing EX in the US was still plaqued with effects from a few crashes. He didn't get back to full form. The World EX series he sure looked back up to speed the last few years. Not to mention all the extreme Enduro events.

Amazing rider. I saw him at the ‘06 or ‘07 Endurocross in Vegas/Orleans arena. That was a long time ago!

Looking forward to the few races this year. It’s a great show.

07 was when he came over and beat Knight. At that time most people had never even heard of him, although those of us who follow world trials had heard the name.

That was also Haaker’s first year doing it. He was riding a Montesa trials bike (his Dad’s) He shocked a lot of people by qualifying fastest that night!

It was Cody Webb’s first EX. He rode a Sherco trials bike. He almost made the main, bit drowned it out in the deep water pit.

I went to the first endurocross when Ryno won. Then all the finals up through Taddys 5th championship. Lot exciting races at the Orleans.

Yeah, I think I remember seeing you there😂

It was at that first race my 5 year old looked at me and said “that’s what I want to do” He now races in the pro class.

Taddy does not need a teammate to block half the field to win the championship. Would like to see Taddy add another EX championship.
