Bike: Beta 250 RR Race Edition

"The Gobbler Getter Enduro was one of the races I have never done before, and I have never raced in this state of Alabama. The soil is sandy and the trees are tight! The track conditions were near perfect. The tight trees and ever changing elevation caught me off guard. I was expecting this last National Enduro race to cap off a good end to the year since I did so well at the last GNCC event, but the race had other plans. It seemed like I couldn't get a good flow going, but talking with other riders, that seemed to be everyone's issue. On a good note, I finished the day stronger than where I started. My Beta 300 was perfect and very fun to race. I'm looking forward to working hard this winter and starting round 1 with a fresh start here in a couple months! Thanks Beta for all the support!"

2 top tens for the GasGas team at the last National Enduro in Alabama to finish the season.

Stanton, AL (November 4, 2018) – FAR Racing Gas Gas North America’s Andrew DeLong turned in an impressive seventh overall finish on his GasGas XC300 at this weekend’s Gobbler Getter National Enduro in Stanton, Alabama.  While Thorn Devlin continues his comeback from knee surgery.

 

The event marked the season finale for the National Enduro series and it featured one of the largest entries of the year, as rain leading up to the weekend left the Alabama soil in perfect condition for racing.

 

After making a few setup changes to his bike, DeLong settled into a fast pace that saw him close on KTM factory rider Ben Kelley midway into the race. However, when DeLong got a little too impatient, he started pushing a little too hard and the result was a trip into the trees, which cost the Pennsylvania rider considerable time.

 

In the end, DeLong still managed one of his best rides of the season with a seventh overall.

 

Factory rider Thorn Devlin rounded out the top 10 in only his 2nd National Enduro since 2017 after having extensive knee surgery this spring.   Thorn racing the new XC250 after just testing last week showed good speeds and things are looking strong for Thorn moving into 2019.

 

Andrew DeLong: We made some changes from our GNCC setup and I didn’t feel too comfortable with them in the tight woods, so we made some adjustments after the first test and I started rolling pretty good. I felt really good and I closed in on Ben Kelley. I lost a lot of time in that first test before we made the changes, but I was up to within 12 seconds of Ben and I was riding pretty good but I made a little bobble and lost some time to him. In test six I went for it and I ended up riding over my head. I wanted fifth pretty bad and I made a big mistake and got caught up in some trees and ended up seventh. Overall it was a good day and a good way to finish off the season.

 

Thorn Devlin: I thought I would try the XC250 for the last National instead of the XC300.   I really liked the feel and power of the motor, the bike felt a little quicker than the 300 and was fun to race it.  I still have some conditioning to do to get back into the pace and rhythm I want, but it is coming along for sure.

STEWARD BAYLOR JR. BECOMES THREE-TIME AMA NATIONAL ENDURO CHAMPION

KTM-Champ.jpg

Round 10 (Finale) - AMA National Enduro Series - November 4, 2018

STANTON, Ala. – KTM riders swept the overall podium once again on Sunday for the tenth and final round of the 2018 AMA National Enduro Series in Stanton, Alabama. It was Tely Energy Racing/KTM’s Grant Baylor who topped the day’s results at the Gobbler Getter National Enduro, but it was his teammate, Steward Baylor Jr., who emerged as the 2018 Champion following a third-place finish on the day. FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Josh Toth completed the all-KTM podium with a hard-fought second-place finish.

 

Steward Baylor Jr. put a cap on a successful 2018 season, where he finished atop the podium at each of the ten rounds. With three victories under his belt, Baylor’s season-long consistency was key in earning his third-career title. With one goal in mind, Steward kept a steady pace all day, finishing inside the top-four throughout each of the day’s six tests. With a test-win in section five, Baylor kept himself in the hunt for a win but, in the end, third overall was more than enough to secure the 2018 championship.

 

Grant Baylor showed the most consistency and speed of the day, as he maintained control of the race from start to finish. Baylor came out swinging with a win in the opening test and from there, he went on to notch two more test-wins in sections three and four, which gave him a favorable position heading into the final two tests. Finishing second and fourth in the last two sections, Grant was able to maintain his lead to earn his fourth victory of the season. He concluded the 2018 season with third overall in the championship standings.

 

It was a solid day for Toth, who battled for a podium position all day. Toth kicked things off with a pair of thirds in the first two tests, before jumping up to second in test three. He dropped back to fourth in section four but he battled his way back to finish strong with second in test five and a win in test six, which was good enough to catapult him into second overall for the day.

 

In his first full season of competing in the AMA National Enduro Series, Toth earned second overall in the championship standings with a solid panel of finishes, including one overall win and six podium-finishes.

 

Steward Baylor Jr.: I’m pumped to wrap up another National Enduro Championship! We had an awesome year with a very smooth season and I look forward to the 2019 season, where I look to defend my title again.”

 

Josh Toth: “The final National Enduro of the year was a ton of fun with a great course and conditions. I had super close racing all day with Stu Baylor and Evan Smith, and it came down to the last test with me in fourth place, just ten seconds from second-place. I put my head down and ripped the last test, winning the test and grabbing second overall. I’m very happy to have had a consistent year in NEPG, while learning a lot and improving my riding. It was my first year competing in the series and being runner-up to a three-time NEPG champion and fighting all the way into the last race is something I am proud of, I will only improve from here!”

 

Team Manager, Antti Kallonen: Congratulations to Steward and Tely Energy Racing/KTM team for their championship. It was a great season by all KTM riders and I’m happy to see Steward on the top step and earning his third National Enduro Championship.”

Baylors Brothers Carve Up Gobbler Getter National Enduro

Stanton, AL (November 4, 2018) – Steward and Grant Baylor once again demonstrated their National Enduro prowess by carving up the final round of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series in Stanton, Alabama.

 Grant claimed his second win of the season – and second in a row – while older brother Steward clinched the 2018 national title with a third place finish. Steward’s title marked his second in a row and the third of his career.

champ-getter-014-1.jpg

 In all, the Tely Energy Racing-backed brothers combined to win seven of the nine rounds held during the 2018 season, while FMF KTM’s Josh Toth and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Thad DuVall won the remaining two.

 Grant got off to a fast start at the Gobbler Getter, winning the opening test by 14 seconds over Steward, while Toth was not far behind in third. From there, Grant went on to claim two more test wins, extending his lead to 29 seconds at the finish.

grant-getter-007-1.jpg

 “Today was awesome,” said Grant. “The track was a bit slippery and it was hard to get stopped in places. I fell over in a few turns, but after I won that first test I just tried to be smooth and not lose the advantage.”

 With Grant the clear leader after the first test, a battle ensued over second place between Toth, Steward Baylor and SRT Husqvarna’s Evan Smith.

 Smith won test two and took the lead in the battle over the runner-up slot. However, Steward won test five and closed to within five seconds. Neither could hold off Toth in the sixth and final test, however, as the Connecticut rider won the test by 19 seconds over Steward and 25 seconds over Smith to cement second overall for the day.

 “Steward and I were literally tied for like three tests in a row, so it was close racing all day,” said Toth. “I was fourth going into the final test behind Grant, Steward and Evan, but I just ripped it and was able to make up enough ground to move into second.”

 Steward edged out Smith for third by just two seconds.

 “Obviously you would like to win the race with you wrap up a title, but I knew going into the final test that I just needed to ride smooth and not make any mistakes and the title was mine,” said Baylor. “I didn’t try to hang it out there and risk a crash, I just did what I needed to do.

 “I’m really happy with the season. This made my ninth podium in nine rounds, so it’s been a consistent season. It just feels good to add another championship.”

champ-getter-013-1.jpg

 For Smith, the race was bittersweet, having missed the podium by such a small margin. However, his test win was more than enough reward for a hard-fought season.

 “I won a grass track test last year in Tulsa, but this is my first “real” enduro test win, so I’m pretty excited,” said Smith. “I ran second from the second test to the fifth test and I really thought I could finish second overall but Stew and Josh were riding well. I’m still happy with the day.”

Trail Jesters Racing KTM’s Ben Kelley rounded out the top five; while Solid Performance KTM’s Ryder Lafferty topped the NE Pro2 division with a sixth overall finish.

 “I started off pretty rough; I had two crashes in the first test and I was really struggling,” said Lafferty. “After that, we changed a few things with the bike and just tried to regroup and I was able to come back.”

 Andrew DeLong, the 2014 National Enduro Champion, put his FAR Racing GasGas North America XC300 into seventh place, finishing just five seconds behind Lafferty. Meanwhile KR4 Husqvarna’s Liam Draper was eight overall and second in the NE Pro2 class.

 Central Florida Powersports KTM’s Jesse Ansley turned some heads with a ninth overall finish and first in the AA class, while Pennsylvania’s Thorn Devlin rounded out the top 10 on a GasGas.

 Beta USA’s Mike Witkowski finished 11th overall, edging out KTM-mounted Nathan Ferderer. Ferderer’s 12th overall was good enough for third in the NE Pro2 class.

 KR4 Husqvarna’s Tayla Jones swept all five tests to win the Women’s Elite class by 21 seconds ahead of Trail Jesters KTM Racing’s Mackenzie Tricker. Jones won seven rounds in 2018 to claim this year’s title.

 “The dirt was perfect with all the rain we had leading up to the race and I had a good day,” said Jones. “I like the Enduro series, and I think I adapted to the format pretty well over the course of the season.”

 Viator Performance Racing’s Jessica Delee was third in the Women’s Elite on a KTM.

 Martin Howell won the A 30+ class, beating out fellow KTM riders Bryan Henson and Mitchell McRee. Meanwhile, Trale Henderson won the 200A class on a Yamaha, with KTM riders Chris Cornell and David McCool finishing second and third.

ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S THAD DUVALL OUT DUE TO INJURY

loose-moose-34.jpg

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Thad Duvall sustains an injury to his hand.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Thad Duvall will miss the final rounds of the GNCC and AMA National Enduro series due to an injury he sustained at the Powerline Park GNCC in St. Clairsville, Ohio.  After numerous doctor visits, a hand specialist finally confirmed that he sustained a fracture to the ulna and some small tears in his ligaments. Currently there is no timetable on his return to racing.

With four overall GNCC wins under his belt this season, and sitting second in the GNCC championship standings, Duvall is devastated to not be able to finish out the season.

 

Thud Duvall: “Being injured and missing the last round of each series is a real bummer. I was hoping to make it three in a row this weekend at the Ironman round, which is one of my favorite tracks. I was looking forward to also riding the new 2019 FX 450 this weekend. I am hoping for a quick recovery, so I can get the off season started on the right foot and focus on returning better and stronger in 2019.”

 

We wish Thad a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the bike soon.
