American Red Bull KTM athlete Cody Webb lead a podium sweep on the opening day of the Clipsal 500 SuperEnduroX held as part of the opening round of the Supercars championship in Adelaide on Friday the 3rd of March.

After a hugley successful EnduroX event last year, race organiser Dave Ellis took the event to another level for 2017, combining the technical elements of EnduroX with the high flying fast paced action of Supercross to host one of the most unique motorcycle events on the planted.

On a track that alternated between EnduroX and Supercross racing lanes, it was former American Supercross, Motocross and EnduroX superstar Mike Brown who kicked off the day's racing in fine form taking the opening early morning race win before fellow American Kyle Redmond fought off both Brown and Webb for a narrow win.

While the American riders set the pace in the opening races of the day, Australia KTM Desert racer Tye Simmonds and former pro Motocross and Supercross racer Cheyne Boyd lead the way for the local talent with Boyd impressing early with the third fastest qualifying time.

When the evenings main event rolled around it was again a Battle of the American's during Superpole with Webb coming out on top in the one lap sprint posting a time of 1'02.192, to top the Husqvarna pairing of Redmond and Brown who posted times of 1'02.942 and 1'02.946 respectively.

Tye Simmonds was able to break the American dominance in the Man V Man race off, edging out Webb in their semi final before going on to beat Jake Smith in an all Aussie race off.

When the gates dropped for the first of the back to back six lap main events, it was Brown who shot off to an early lead before locking into a intense battle with his fellow U.S counterparts.

Redmond took control of the race early on as Brown suffered a puncture, leaving him to drop back to third.

As the opening race entered the final lap, Webb moved onto the rear wheel of Redmond bringing the large crowd on hand to life as the two riders battled it out on the final lap, with Webb making the move into the lead by the mid point of the lap and went on to win the opening leg of the race ahead of Redmond.

Despite the flat tyre, Brown held onto third just ahead of Boyd in 4th with Simmonds rounding out the top five just ahead of Yamaha privateer Dylan Rees.

With just a five minute break between main event one and two, riders were quickly back on track with Webb pulling the holeshot and clearing out early, going on to take a comfortable race and overall day one win.

Behind him it was a battle for second, with Brown taking the honours ahead of Redmond to cross the line in second position and in doing so claimed second position overall for the day on count-back.

Park4MX's Cheyne Boyd looked as though he was going to pull off the result of the day, sitting in second place in the second main event heading into the final lap.
Unfortunately for the Victorian, a mistake left him to drop back to 7th place, leaving him to finish the day in 5th position behind the consistent Dylan Rees who picked up 4th.
