Cody Webb Set to Tackle Erzberg
Webb has won some of the biggest American Extreme off-road events and will be looking for a top finish at one of the World’s most famous Extreme Enduro’s
Beta USA’s Cody Webb is preparing to tackle one of the toughest races in the world this coming weekend (May 29 – June 1), the Red Bull Hare Scramble, in Erzberg, Austria. The Erzberg Rodeo is arguably one of the toughest single day off-road motorcycle events and requires riders to complete the course in four hours. Fewer than 20 of the 500 riders that start the event accomplish that. Webb is on a hot streak having won the first round of the GEICO EnduroCross series in Vegas a few weeks ago and he also won the 2014 King of the Motos and 2013 Tennessee Knockout events, so he is certainly capable of a top finish in Erzberg.
“I’m very excited to have my first attempt at Erzberg during the 20th annual celebration of the Iron Giant. Many riders are returning this year along with a large group of Americans.” The likes of Taylor Robert and Kyle Redmond will join Webb in Austria for this event along with Canada’s Cory Graffunder.
Webb goes on to say, “It will be a battle until the end and I hope I have a quick learning curve to figure out the best attack plan. I have faith in my 300 RR and physical conditioning to know that I can run near the top. This is a huge experience for myself and I can’t wait to see how I finish at this prestigious event.”
