PASO ROBLES, CA - Beta factory rider Cody Webb ended his 2011 AMA Mototrial season with a dominating win over rival Pat Smage besting the new champion by 23 points. The win brought a positive end to an exciting season.

The final three rounds were held at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennesse this past weekend. The event proved to be tough as the weather became an issue on the first two days with thunderstorms passing through each afternoon. This made the huge rock outcroppings slippery having the two top riders searching for traction. Webb finished the final round on top of the podium for the day and in second position for the season.

“My weekend was not as perfect as I would have liked however it was a good learning experience. I had to battle back from terrible first loops Saturday and Sunday. Monday I finally put it all together and rode like I was supposed to all year. I was super impressed with the performance of my Beta all weekend and I can’t wait for next year to battle back for another championship. I can’t thank everyone enough for all the help and support. I also want to thank my sponsors American Beta, RL Racing, Dunlop, Gaerne, Kal Gard, S3, Nau, and Country Home Inspection to help make this year a great one”.  Webb explains.

Next stop for Cody is the National EnduroX series which begins on July 31st at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This round will be a part of the ESPN X-Games. Look for Webb on his factory-prepared Beta 350 RR.

ESPN and Global RallyCross Championship (GRC) series organizer RallyCross Management have reached an exclusive agreement for the inaugural race series to receive coverage across ESPN’s multiple media platforms.  The first race of the series kicks off at Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, Calif. March 25-26, 2011, with two additional races at Old Mill Rally Park in Snoqualmie, Wash. and Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colo.

Following the success of rally events at ESPN’s X Games, including the first X Games RallyCross competition at last summer’s X Games 16, the GRC series will be distributed on a tape-delayed basis domestically in the U.S. on ESPN and ESPN2 and to more than 100 countries through international network distribution.  ESPN3.com will provide live coverage on the 24/7 live broadband sports network and on ESPN Mobile TV. Additionally, original web-exclusive content will be created for digital distribution across non-linear ESPN platforms throughout the social media landscape, including ESPN and X Games official Facebook pages.

“ESPN is thrilled to have the Global RallyCross Championship exclusively on our services around the world,” said Scott Guglielmino, senior vice president of programming and Global X Games. “We look forward to working with RallyCross Management and bringing together world-class drivers and manufacturers to showcase this exciting form of motorsports racing to ESPN audiences around the world.”

Three-time X Games rally gold medalist Tanner Foust, said, “RallyCross has huge potential in the U.S. and is almost the perfect spectator motorsport with the whole track visible from one seat, insane racecars that are pushing, shoving, sliding sideways and jumping.  The added bonus of ESPN’s involvement brings in a lot of the stars from the X Games, and anyone who’s ever seen the X Games understands what ESPN is capable of doing for action sports.”
