Corona, Calif. (May 22, 2017) – Troy Lee Designs rider Cody Webb took the Day 2 win on his way to second overall at the Red Bull Minas Riders, part of the Hard Enduro Series, nearly giving him the win over reigning series champ Graham Jarvis. As a rookie to the competition Webb was quick to learn what was needed to succeed, but with rain canceling the final days he had to settle for second overall.
The “Hard Enduro” in Minas Gerais, Brazil lived up to its name with challenges spanning over 150 miles. From sketchy bridge crossings to cliff climbs, Webb’s skill was tested but in the end he excelled in the conditions. After getting a grip on the style of racing that makes up a Hard Enduro, he took the win on Day 2 and came within just two minutes of the leader before the race was called due to unrelenting rains in the area.
“After the first day, I knew it was going to be an challenging second day,” said Webb. “It was probably some of the hardest terrain I’ve ever ridden. I was able pick up my race a lot in the second half and I pushed through to gained time on Graham (Jarvis). It’s pretty awesome to be right there with him. It would have been interesting to see how close I could have gotten to him if it didn’t get rained out.”
Webb was wearing the SE Air Streamline Orange and Navy Jersey with the SE Air Pant, along with the Air Glove, all from the brand new 2018 collection. Check out the full 2018 lineup or click to find your local TLD retailer.
