KTM celebrates Cody Webb’s second consecutive GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship with a highlight video from the final round in Ontario, California.
It’s great to be Cody Webb these days.
Hot on the heels of an announcement that he would be switching from the satellite RPM KTM off-road team to a full-fledged position on the factory Red Bull KTM team for 2016, Webb rolled into the final round of the 2015 GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series at Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, California, and brought home his second consecutive GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series championship. In doing so, Webb joined David Knight and Taddy Blazusiak as a two-time GEICO AMA EnduroCross Champion, and he is now the only rider besides Blazusiak to rack up back-to-back series titles in the 12-year history of the series (Blazusiak reeled off five consecutive titles from 2009-2013). Webb is also the first rider in the history of the sport to win GEICO AMA EnduroCross titles on two separate brands. He earned his first championship in 2014 aboard a factory-backed Beta, and he repeated in 2015 aboard his RPM KTM.
“It feels so incredible to get this championship,” Webb said after successfully defending his title in Ontario on November 21. “It was amazing to win last year but to go a full season with a target on your back and come out on top is a great feeling. I am so thankful to everyone who helped support me and to get this win for KTM.”
In 2016, Webb will be gunning for a third consecutive title aboard his new Red Bull KTM factory ride, and he is also scheduled to return to Europe in search of his first FIM SuperEnduro World Championship. Perhaps he will be able to dethrone Blazusiak in that series the same way he did in the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series. Blazusiak has racked up an impressive consecutive six titles in the SuperEnduro Championship.
