Webb On Pole For King of the Motos
Defending King of the Motos champion Cody Webb has qualified fastest for Sunday’s main event.
Starting as he means to go on, Webb’s time in the short, sharp qualification loop was seven seconds faster than runner-up Kailub Russell.
Russell – the reigning GNCC champion – is already off to a strong start in his debut ride in the King of the Motos and heads into Sunday’s main event second fastest.
As the final rider to take to the line, Kyle Redmond set the third quickest time. Originally Redmond was due to start his run with the Pros, but a broken reed valve just moments before he was about to start left him waiting until the very end to take to the track. He’s since been awarded the third qualifier.
Just missing out on a top ten time – Graham Jarvis was 11th fastest. But as the inaugural winner of the race, Jarvis won’t be too worried about that. For him the real race starts when they hit the tough rocky sections.
For the first time the race will be split into two stages. Starting at 08.00hrs PST – 16.00hrs GMT – the first loop will see competitors tackle some of the high-speed stages. In the afternoon they will then arrive to the harder more extreme rocky climbs.
As Hard Enduro goes it’s certainly a race of two halves where you’ve got to be the best of both the high speed desert trails and nasty rock sections to stand a shot at finishing on the podium.
