Cody Webb kicked off the defense of his GEICO EnduroCross AMA Championship in style by taking the win at the opening round inside the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The FMF/RPM/KTM Team Maxxis rider had a back-and-forth battle with Kyle Redmond on the factory Beta early in the race and survived a crash and a bad start to take the win.

Redmond eventually had a few crashes and battled back to finish third, behind Rockstar Lucas Oil Husqvarna-backed Colton Haaker.

SRT Racing’s Cory Graffunder had a great ride for his new team to take fourth, from Beta USA’s Max Gerston, who survived a lot of carnage and an off-track excursion to finish fifth.

Mike Brown had the top gate pick by setting the fastest evening Hot Lap and took advantage of that to rocket to the holeshot and lead the first lap, but then had the first of several crashes on lap two and eventually finished sixth.

The next round of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series will take place at Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday, 21 March.
