Securing victory at the final round of the 2015 series in Ontario, California, Spain’s Sandra Gomez has been crowned the AMA Endurocross champion for the first time in her career.

At the end of a highly successful season Gomez rode her TE 125 to no fewer than three wins and a total of seven podium finishes in the women’s class. But success didn’t come easy for the Husqvarna rider in 2015.

Unable to attend the opening round of the series in Daytona, Florida, Gomez had little room for errors during the 2015 EnduroCross season. Winning rounds two and three the Husqvarna rider quickly earned her place among the Women’s class favourites.

Fighting hard to overcome her early season points deficit, as well as a foot injury sustained during the summer, the rider from Madrid failed just once to finish on the podium throughout 2015.

Going to the ninth and final round of the series in Ontario, Gomez was leading the standings by just one point from her main rival Rachel Gutish.

Confirming her status as one of the world’s very best female EnduroCross racers Gomez powered her 2-stroke TE 125 to the win in Ontario to clinch her debut AMA EnduroCross Championship.

Sandra Gomez:
“It’s an unbelievable feeling to have won the Women’s Endurocross title. I’ve been through some really tough times during the last few months but everything has been worth it. I don’t have enough words to thank my family, my friends, my sponsors and all the people who selflessly stood by my side. I’ve seen my dream come true and the title belongs to everyone that helped me.”
