After some exciting racing over the five-round series, it was Troy Lee Designs’ Cody Webb who controlled the points lead going into the final round.
Despite a tough final round, the 29-year-old from Watsonville, California was overjoyed with clinching his first ever world title with a fifth place overall finish in the final round. Adding the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship to his 2017 AMA EnduroCross title, Northern California native, Cody Webb is undisputedly the man to beat in indoor enduro.
Cody Webb: “I am so happy, I can’t tell you what this means to me. Of course, I feel bad for Taddy, he was riding really well tonight. The championship has been great and for it to come down to the wire shows how high the quality really is – I have so much respect for every single rider in this series. I was riding really tight tonight – I think because of my nerves – and Taddy was pushing so hard. He had some bad luck tonight, but I’ve had a couple of bad rounds too. After having a year out of racing in Europe, to come back and be World Champion is amazing – this is definitely the most important title I have won so far. After my riding tonight, I know there are still some things I have to work on so I’ll go away now, regroup and prepare for the WESS this summer.”
Cody Webb raced to his first ever SuperEndruo World Championship in the SE Air Metric Navy/Orange #tldmoto kit.
