Baylor tops Georgia Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro
SRT Racing KTM‰Ûªs Steward Baylor Jr. grabbed his first win in the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series presented by PRI Powersports Insurance with an impressive performance at round two of the series held this weekend at Echeconnee MX facility near Lizella, Georgia.

Baylor turned the tables on round one winner Ryan Sipes, beating the Coastal Racing Husqvarna rider by a little more than 10 seconds after an exciting and hard fought battle that closely mirrored that of the opening round, which was won by Sipes. And just as he did at round one, Sipes won all six of the Cross Tests. Meanwhile Baylor duplicated his performance at the opening round by winning all six of the Enduro tests. However, this time Baylor managed to gain more ground on Sipes in the Enduro tests than Sipes gain on him in the Cross tests, giving the South Carolina rider the ‰ÛÏW‰Û

Sipes held the lead at the end of the first day of racing, leading Baylor by approximately 12 seconds after six tests, though he had a bit of an advantage since the Enduro test became un-passable late in the day due to a deep mud hole, and the organizers had to abandon the test at the end of the day, which meant the riders had to ride the Cross test four times and the Enduro test just twice. The Enduro test was re-routed for Sunday and to even things out, the riders took to the Enduro test four times and the Cross test just twice.

‰ÛÏI was a little under the weather when I started the race on Saturday and I wasn‰Ûªt exactly on my game,‰Û

Sipes went into Sunday‰Ûªs race with a 12-second cushion, but lost it all when he missed a marker in the opening test of the day ‰ÛÒ the Enduro test ‰ÛÒ where the course had been re-routed.

‰ÛÏI didn‰Ûªt get to walk the newest part of the track because they were still marking it when it was time to start getting ready for the race, but it was kind of my fault because there was a banner there, and I‰Ûªm really not reading banner, I‰Ûªm reading trail,‰Û

However, Ashburn picked up the pace on Sunday and wound up edging Blythe for third by 10 seconds.

‰ÛÏWe were back and forth all weekend and I felt like I struggle a little bit about mid-day today with track conditions on the Cross test, it was kind of hard-packed and slick,‰Û
