Webb and Gerston IN for 2012 Tennessee Knockout

Cycle News Staff | August 9, 2012

Sequatchie, TN (August 7, 2012) – Cody Webb, the 2010 AMA Trials Champion has made a very successful transition to EnduroCross racing and his silver medal at the 2012 X Games further backed that up. The factory Beta rider finished second at the inaugural KENDA Tennessee Knockout event last year and he is now looking for the win.

When asked about the 2012 TKO, Webb had this to say: “I’m hoping for a more extreme event in this year’s TKO. Last year, the race was difficult, but not comparable to the extreme races I have ridden in Europe. The course was a long and fast paced race similar to an Endurocross race. Coming from a trials background, I prefer a long slow paced difficult course that wears down the competition. No matter what the course offers, I’m excited to return and see the resurgence of extreme races in the US”.

Webb’s Beta teammate, Max Gerston will also be participating in the KENDA Tennessee Knockout. The 2011 GEICO EnduroCross Amateur Champion is now racing expert and is definitely a young rider to watch.
