Steward and Grant finished 1-2 in the 2019 AMA National Enduro Championship and the former KTM riders will go into the new year with a new look riding for the Sherco factory team.

“With the new team, I feel like these guys are putting everything in and I am ready to go win some races on these new amazing machines,” Steward Baylor said.

Grant Baylor said, “Here in 2020 I’ve got some big changes as I am switching to FactoryONE Sherco. I am excited to get on this new bike and see what we can do with it and put it on the box.”

“I am honestly still in a bit of shock” said Ron Sallman, team owner. “First Cody Webb, now Steward and Grant Baylor? The brothers provide FactoryONE Sherco with an immediate opportunity to chase championships and be on the box often in two prestigious off-road series. Stew is fresh off winning the NEPG championship, finishing only a few points ahead of Grant in second place. They both had strong showings at ISDE. I am really looking forward to seeing what they will do in 2020”

“Stew and Grant provide us with a big one-two punch on the East coast,” said team manager, Wayne Dickert. “GNCC is arguably the largest off-road series in the world based on the total number of participants and fans. This provides Sherco USA with an amazing opportunity to bring the brand front and center in front of thousands of loyal fans. I am excited to get the new season kicked off.”

The Baylor brothers will compete in select sprint enduros.
