One of the all-time greats of desert racing, Destry Abbott holds 10 major championships and 7 gold medals from the International Six Days Enduro. He's also a husband, a father of two and one of the most respected riders in the sport. The slow, technical nature of EnduroCross is not Abbott's specialty -- in contrast, running fast through the desert is -- but he loves the big stage and thrives on this type of pressure. He's been racing EnduroCross since 2004 and his best finishes are at X Games, where he's made three Finals. In March 2014 he opened DA8 training (gym/trainers), where he trains along with some of his competitors. His son, Cooper, now is competing in pro endurocross races.
- Destry, who's making his sixth appearance in Austin 2015, has made the final three times, with a best place finish of sixth at X Games LA 2011. The five-time AMA National Hare and Hound Champion is also a five-time Best in the Desert Champion and a seven-time gold medalist at the International Six Days Enduro. Destry also competed in the first ever U.S. EnduroCross in 2004.
