Endurocross Podium For Bobby Prochnau
Bobby Prochnau Earns 3rd at Everett Endurocross
Canada native Bobby Prochnau wholeheartedly earned his first podium of the 2012 Endurocross series; his best finish yet. Making the switch to the KTM 350-XCF, Prochanu was able to focus on his technique and the checkers while his bike did the rest of the work.
In Heat 1, Prochnau just barely missed the transfer spot as he took third, but carried his momentum into the Semi taking the win and transferring into the night show.

Charging off the gate, Prochnau sat comfortably with the front pack in fourth. On lap two, he got caught up in an obstacle that held him back while the rest of the pack moved forward. But the mistake fueled his fire and Prochnau became a freight train, charging through the field with a fierce energy. Moving up at a consistent pace, Prochnau moved into third overall on the last lap ahead of FMF/KTM’s Mike Brown. Keeping steady against the challenging course, Prochnau came through the final checkers of the night in 3rd overall just behind Taylor Robert and Taddy Blazusiak.

Chantelle Bykerk Moves Into the Points Lead
After having a podium-filled season in the Endurocross series, Chantelle Bykerk has flaunted her natural ability to dominate in her first full year racing the Endurocross series. Coming off her win in Denver, Colorado, Bykerk came into the Everett round with a beaming confidence. Though her goal of taking another win wouldn’t come easy as her and Louise Forsley have had an ongoing battle all season long.
After the gate dropped for the Women’s Main event, Bykerk came around the first lap in sixth. Putting the discouraging start out of her mind, she made up a whopping four positions and took control of second. Being one of the most difficult courses of the season, the ladies were only given a three lap race, and Bykerk was able to solidify her second place finish just behind Louise Forsley.
Bykerk now sits in the points lead by just one point over Louise Forsley and Maria Forsberg.
