Beta’s Cody Webb Clinches First GEICO EnduroCross Championship

Cody Webb finally dethroned Taddy Blazusiak to take his first GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship. The Factory Beta / Stillwell Performance-backed Webb only needed to finish tenth in the main event to take the title but made the math easy by finishing second to Factory Red Bull KTM’s Blazusiak. Colton Haaker finished third in Ontario and third in the 2014 championship.

With the championship battle so tight, the extra points awarded for the heat races and the fastest evening hot lap became extremely important. FMF KTM’s Taylor Robert took the first pro heat race win over Haaker to steal one of those points. Then GEICO-backed Webb and Blazusiak won their respective heat races to take one more point each. Robert set the fastest time during the evening hot laps to get first gate pick and take the bonus point away from the top three riders that were battling for the title. This gave Webb a little more cushion going into the main.

Haaker took the $500 hole-shot to get the main event started but got sideways in the first wood pile section to allow Blazusiak to take the lead. Webb made a few quick passes to end the first lap in third and seemed content to ride a consistent race. Blazusiak held a three-to-five second lead at the finish line for most of the fifteen lap main event but Haaker actually closed to his wheel twice when Blazusiak got stuck but just as quickly had his own problems.
