Defending King of the Motos Champion Cody Webb couldn’t have gotten a better start if he had bribed the officials and the rest of his competition.

The American Beta rider, who had finished second by mere seconds after the morning loop, dominated the 2014 King of the Motos in Johnson Valley, California, today, defending his KoM crown after pulling an incredible holeshot up the rock formation known as Chocolate Thunder during the afternoon’s second, more technical, loop.
