Troy Lee Designs Rider Cody Webb Starts Title Defense With Podium in Atlanta
Duluth, Ga. (August 29, 2016) – Troy Lee Designs’ Cody Webb
started the 2016 EnduroCross season with a successful opening round showing at the Infinite Energy Arena outside Atlanta, scoring a strong podium finish in second. Running the No. 1 plate, Webb showed the competition he was on top of his game and capable of defending his 2015 championship.
Webb started the night on a positive note, winning the first heat of the evening by over eight seconds and gaining a valuable championship point. In the main event, he grabbed a great start and settled into third. After a few laps, he was able to capitalize on a mistake from the second place rider, holding on the runner-up position until the checkered flag.
“With EnduroCross, you never know what’s going to happen so we’ll take a second place and be pushing for our first win next weekend,” said Webb. “You have to be consistent so this was a good start for us.”
After the points were tallied, Webb is only three points behind the championship leader. The second round of the AMA EnduroCross Championship will be held over Labor Day weekend at Badlands Motor Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, just outside Sioux Falls on September 3.
Webb stood out with his TLD GP Tremor Black and White Racewear
