Cody Webb Makes His Intentions Clear Winning GEICO AMA Enduro Race One

Posted:

Cody Webb kicked off the defense of his GEICO EnduroCross AMA Championship in style by taking the win at the opening round inside the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The FMF/RPM/KTM Team Maxxis rider had a back-and-forth battle with Kyle Redmond on the Factory Beta early in the race and survived a crash and a bad start to take the win. Redmond eventually had a few crashes and battled back to finish third. Rockstar, Lucas Oil Husqvarna-backed Colton Haaker rode a steady race to take second.

Mike Brown had the top gate pick by setting the fastest evening Hot Lap and took advantage of that to rocket into the lead and take the Nexen Tire $500 holeshot award. Brown led the first lap but then had the first of several crashes on lap two and eventually finished sixth.

Webb quickly recovered from a bad start to get into third on lap two and take the lead on lap three. He appeared to be on his way to an easy win but Redmond, who took over Webb‰Ûªs place on the Factory Beta for 2015, kept the pressure on and Webb went down. Redmond led for a few laps and the two battled until a mistake pushed Redmond back. From the mid way point in the fifteen lap main, Webb steadily opened his lead on Haaker and eventually finished with a 13 second lead to take the win and the points lead.

‰ÛÏHonestly, a win‰Ûªs a win but that one sucked,‰Û
