King-of-the-Motos-Full-2-2-14

Johnson Valley, CA – On Saturday afternoon, Cody Webb, 25, of Watsonville, Calif., finished first out of 69 competitors during the 2014 King of the Motos qualifying. Webb, who won the event in 2013, now has pole position going into Sunday’s two-part final. Kailub Russell, a first-time competitor from Boonville, N.C. finished second, while Kyle Redmond of Lake Hughes, Calif. was third.

Notes from KOM Qualifying
·       Qualifying didn’t eliminate any competitors – it was used as a way to seed competitors for Sunday’s final. Competitors left the start at intervals and did a short lap close to the venue.

·       With a time of 3:00:42, Cody Webb was seven seconds faster than the next competitor. A three-time X Games medalist with a strong trials racing background, Webb is the defending “King” of the event. He’d like nothing more than to start off his racing season with a win. “I want to start the year with a bang,” Webb said in an earlier interview. “I want prove to people I’m here to do business. The first step is winning King of Motos and putting some fear in my competitors’ eyes.” Webb also competes in the Endurocross series, X Games, AMA/NATC Moto-Trials and select endurance races throughout the year.

·       2012 King of the Motos winner Graham Jarvis (UK) finished 12th in qualifying with a time of 3:22.78. Considered one of the greatest extreme enduro racers of all time (he’s a three-time Hell’s Gate winner), look for Jarvis to step up on Sunday’s longer course.

·       Louise Forsley, one of three women competing in the competition, finished an impressive 35th, besting almost half of the men’s field. Forsley is a former X Games competitor from Bernardston, Mass.
