They have not said who will be racing the bike, I'll see if I can get an answer about that!

FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:

Alta Motors has already proven the capability of their Redshift MX electric bike at EnduroCross. During the first official race for the bike at the 2016 Phoenix EnduroCross, Kurt Nicoll took the vet class win with a last lap pass. For 2017, Alta will become an official partner with the AMA EnduroCross series to help show off the bike to all the racers and fans.

“The extreme obstacles encountered during an EnduroCross race allow the Alta Redshift MX to demonstrate its benefits over the competition,” stated Jon Bekefy, Director of Marketing at Alta Motors. “Riders no longer need to worry about a clutch or shifting during competition and the bike will not stall, which makes those moments less disruptive. Now our riders can focus on clearing the obstacles, which is a big advantage. We’re excited to be entering the Pro Class this year and showcasing the advantages of the Redshift MX.”

I was told Alta will have someone riding the TKO, but I still don't know who it will be.

I found out that Alta will not have a rider at the TKO. Unfortunately both riders Alta was talking with have other commitments that weekend. Mike Aranda will ride an Alta in the AMA EnduroCross series. Mike rode a KTM in the 2016 EX series, earning enough points to finish 21st overall. Alta hopes to show that being on an electric Alta will take Mike to much better finishes.

It will be interesting to see if riding the Alta makes a big difference or little difference in his finishes. ::up::
