Cody Webb Set to Race South Carolina GNCC

Cycle News Staff | May 19, 2020

FactoryONE Sherco announced that Cody Webb is set to race the South Carolina GNCC, currently planned for May 31st. Webb is a three-time EnduroCross champion, 2018 FIM SuperEnduro champion, and arguably the best American Extreme Enduro racer. He has finished on the podium at the Erzberg Rodeo and won the Kenda Tennessee Knockout six times in addition to winning most of the other top US Extreme Enduro events, including the 2020 King of the Motos in February. It is a big departure for Webb to take on a GNCC race. Below is the announcement from his FactoryONE Sherco team:

 FactoryONE Sherco’s Cody Webb will be racing in the XC2 class at the next round of GNCC racing in South Carolina on May 31st. Cody is racing as a means to test his endurance as well as to cross train for his next AMA Extreme Enduro race, Tough Like RORR. Cody competed in a GNCC race back in 2011, so riding fast in the woods isn’t completely new to him. Nevertheless, this will certainly be a big test for Cody whose main focus is highly technical riding through some of the world’s most demanding terrain. Cody will take on the GNCC race on a new Sherco SE-F 250 Factory 4T.

Cody Webb: “I am really excited for the opportunity to race another GNCC. The first one I raced was back in 2011, and it was a double-header weekend at Loretta Lynn’s. It completely kicked my butt, and I am sure the same thing will happen again, but I’m looking forward to the challenge both physically and mentally. With none of my usual races going on, I wanted to utilize my downtime and learn something new. I haven’t raced a 250 four stroke since 2016. I am looking forward to having fun on the smaller bore, allowing me to control the 250, rather than a 450 taking me for a ride. It will be a great and humbling experience, but I can’t turn down a chance to go racing and I can’t wait.”
