Webb Fights back To Win In Brazil

Posted:

KTM‰Ûªs Cody Webb (USA) secured a close fought overall victory at round four of the Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Brazi over the weekend.

Returning to the top step of the podium for the third time this season, Webb edged out both Colton Haaker (USA-Husqvarna) and Jonny Walker (GB-KTM) by the narrowest of margins to take the win in Belo Horizonte.

With the 2015/16 SuperEnduro series entering the second half of the season in Brazil, the battle for top honours proved explosive between title contenders Webb, Walker and Haaker. Securing the overall by one-point, Webb made a last corner pass on rival Walker to snatch victory in the final moments of the night.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm happy to be back on the top step of the podium again,‰Û

Delivering his best performance of the series to date, Haaker matched his runner-up result from last weekend‰Ûªs GP of Argentina but also added in a race three victory. Looking much more controlled and proving more consistent than in previous events, Haaker was a serious threat for the overall victory all night. Hampered only by a small, but costly, crash in race two, the Husqvarna rider ended his night just one-point behind Webb in second.

"I enjoyed it out there tonight," said Haaker. "I felt much more comfortable on the track than in races past. I‰Ûªm happy to get a win in the final race and with it the runner-up result."

Entering Brazil as the new championship leader, Walker hit hard in the Akrapovic SuperPole by setting the fastest time. But unable to find a rhythm in the opening race he had to settle for third. Riding smart and consistent, he capitalised on the mistakes of both Webb and Haaker in race two to claim the win. Holding second for the majority of race three, he almost had the overall victory until Webb sneaked past on the last corner. Ending his night third overall, but just two points behind Webb, Walker still maintains a nine-point advantage in the championship chase.

Behind the leading trio, fourth overall went to KTM‰Ûªs Taylor Robert. Improving as the night went on, Robert placed fourth in the final two races of the night. In the battle for fifth, Alfredo Gomez (KTM) edged out Husqvarna‰Ûªs Mario Roman by just one point to claim a top five result.

The Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship continues with the penultimate round of the series in Prague, Czech Republic on March 12.
