THE REV LIMITER HARD ENDURO: CODY WEBB CONQUERS COLD AND SERIOUS COMPETITION

Cody Webb, wearing extra layers to battle the 32-degree weather rode what he called a near perfect day on the very technical and slippery course.

Cody Webb battled rain and cold weather to win all three events on Sunday, making him the RevLimiter  champion.  Sherco factory riders Wade Young and Mario Roman never challenged Webb, taking second and third respectively.  Wade Young had some mechanical drama in the first moto, but finished third, with Mario Roman taking second, 17 minutes off the pace. In moto two Webb topped Wade Young by five minutes, and then four minutes in the final. Cody lapped up to 10th place in the final, which was the elite field of 150 riders who made the program. Sherco’s Kyle Redmond, in his first race in four months took home fourth place.

South Africa’s Wade Young on his Factory Sherco 300 dealt with a machine stuck in first gear for the first moto. He still finished round one in third place.

 

Mario Roman raced in South America last weekend where the temps were 100+ degrees. The Texas based RevLimited had freezing temperatures on Sunday. Mario finished in third.

 

Kyle Redmond finished fourth overall (4-5-4) in the three motos on his Topar backed Sherco 300. Kyle has ridden sparingly and in his words- too much Taco Bell and not enough training. Kyle is pumped with his new machine.

 

Beta mounted Max Gerston battled the slick technical conditions and came in with a 7th overall.

 

The RevLimiter was a true Hard Enduro test.

 

The Elite riders were challenged with the tricky rock waterfalls. Normal humans used any method available to clear the obstacles.

 

Cody Webb is the most dominant American Extreme racer and proved his worth with a brilliant riding display at the RevLimiter.

The first round of the 2019 MXGP series started in Patagonia, Argentina where Antonio Cairoli (#222) dominated both motos in the MXGP class. Honda’s Tim Gajser finished with two second places and  Yamaha’s Jeremy Van Horebeek rounded out the podium.  World Champion Jeffrey Herlings sat out round one as he’s still healing from an off-season surgery on his foot.

Former World Champion Tim Gajser is healthy again and looked strong with his 2-2 finish.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

Tony Blazier posts some excellent photos from Back in the Day. Every once in a while I even find myself the subject matter! Here I had the luxury of testing Mike Young’s super trick Honda XR628. At the time Mike was one of the fastest 4-stroke racers in America and a good friend. Ken Faught, a stellar shooter and Dirt Rider Editor captured the action. I actually look competent!
