Important Travel Information for Cherokee National Enduro

The Google maps location that shows up on livelaps is close to the actual location of the event.  The address is correct, but the actual location is a litte further off of 15. If you put 3450 Cold Springs Rd Greensboro, GA 30642 into you GPS it will take you right to the correct spot.  

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!! Team Haulers, and anyone traveling with Class A motorhome, Fifth Wheel trailer, or a Larger trailer must enter Cold Springs Rd from the north entrance off of Highway 15.  DO NOT ENTER on the South Entrance.  There is a single lane bridge south of the location that is not suited for that weight.  Pick-up Trucks, vans, and cars only from the south.  Coming in from the north end will also make it much easier for larger vehicles to make the corner to the gate of the entrance.

 Large Haulers, Class A motorhomes, Fifth Wheel Trailers, and Large Trailers use the north entrance that is circled.  Do no use South entrance that is X'd out. 

Large Haulers, Class A motorhomes, Fifth Wheel Trailers, and Large Trailers use the north entrance that is circled.  Do no use South entrance that is X'd out. 

 Parking is a new location from years past with more room and a gravel drive.  The field goes well past the trailer at the top of the hill.

2018 Dragon’s Back National Enduro Round 4 Highlights by Rob Mitchell Films

Arrington, VA (May 6, 2018) – Depsite being just two weeks out from surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand, Grant Baylor started fast and finished strong to win the Dragon’s Back National Enduro, round four of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series in Arrington, Virginia.

By his own admission, Grant’s performance wasn’t the prettiest of his career, however, despite a few tip-overs and muscues, the Tely Energy Racing KTM rider did what he needed to do to take home the “W” in what most considered epic conditions in Virginia.

“I was struggling all day long,” said Grant. “I just wasn’t riding like I should, I crashed three times in the fifth test and twice in the last test. But I won, so obviously I made fewer mistakes than everybody else. This year has been an uphill battle for me, with the broken hand and all. But I just rode my race and kept trying to smooth out a bit, and I guess I did just enough.”

The Virginia race was held at the Oak Ridge Estates, thanks to the Holland family, and despite a heavy rain that slickened the course during the first test, most of the riders had good things to say about the race and a few called it the enduro of the year.

After six tests and 55 miles of racing, Grant finished with three test wins and beat out his brother and teammate Steward Baylor by  52 seconds for the win.

“This was a good day to get the win,” added Grant. “It’s good to be on the podium again with my brother and I’m really happy to get some valuable points.”

Unlike his brother, Steward didn’t get off to as good of a start, but managed to edge FMF KTM’s Josh Toth for the runner-up slot by mere tenths of a second.

“I struggled the first two tests and I just couldn’t seem to find a groove,” said Steward. “I just made a lot of mistakes and no matter what I did I just couldn’t get out of it.”

Heading into the final three tests, Steward found himself in a pretty big hole, but the Tely Energy KTM rider managed to dig his way out thanks to a pair of second-place finishes in the final two tests.

“I worked my way back into contention in test five, so I was nine seconds behind Toth heading into the final test,” added Steward. “I just went for it in that last one and I managed to barley get the job done.”

Toth won tests two and three, but tip-overs late in the race left him third overall by the narrowest of margins.

“I rode pretty consistent but I didn’t ride my best today, for sure,” said Toth. “I fell in the fifth test and then I crashed twice in the final test, just trying to catch Grant and that cost me second.”

Thad DuVall finished second in test one and he won test two, however a stumble in test four and a navigation snafu in section five dropped the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory rider fourth overall.

Ben Kelley rounded out the top five after turning in a performance that saw the FMF KTM Factory rider turn up the heat in the later tests after getting off to a slow start during the first half of the race.

“I was off the pace in the beginning, I just wasn’t aggressive enough at the start,” said Kelley. “I tried to turn it around and my last two tests were faster, although I had a couple of crashes. The first two tests were pretty slick and I think I was just a bit timid.”

SRT Racing’s Evan Smith turned in his best performance of the year with a sixth place finish, edging KR4 Husqvarna’s Cory Buttrick for the position.

Eighth went to Russell Bobbitt on the Gnarly Routes KTM. Meanwhile, Solid Performance KTM’s Ryder Lafferty topped the NE Pro 2 division with a ninth place overall finish.

“It was pretty slick in the first few tests, but it tacked up starting with the third test and I got a little more comfortable,” said Lafferty. “I was all over the place in that second test, but I’m happy with how I rode, especially in the last three or four tests.”

Rounding out the top 10 was Gas Gas North America’s Andrew DeLong.

DeLong’s Gas Gas teammate Nick Davis was second in the NE Pro 2 division with a 12th overall finish, while Virginia’s Paddy Holloway was third in the class and 14th overall.

In the Women’s Elite class, Tayla Jones grabbed her second win of the season, after topping Bonanza Plumbing/Trail Jesters KTM’s Mackenzie Tricker by 24 seconds.

“I had a good race, even though the track was a bit slippery at the beginning,” said Jones. “I had a few silly mistakes and I got stuck a few times, but I managed to hold on for the win.”

Jones won three tests compared to two for Tricker.

FLY/Maxxis/Seat Concepts KTM, while Yamaha-mounted Brooke Cosner rounded out the top three, 50 seconds behind Tricker.

Second Place For Gas Gas North America’s Nick Davis In Virginia

Arrington, VA (May 6, 2018) – FAR Racing Gas Gas North America’s Nick Davis backed up the runner-up finish he claimed at last month’s Red Fox Enduro in Indiana with an equally impressive second place finish in the NE Pro 2 class at this weekend’s Dragon’s National Enduro – round four of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series in Arrington, Virginia. Riding his 2018 GasGas XC250, Davis struggled a bit in the first two tests, which were slippery due to a hard downpour that soaked the area just after the riders took to the course in the morning. However, Davis picked up the pace starting with test three and managed to dig himself out of the hole he had dug in the first two tests to finish an impressive second.

In the NE Pro class, Andrew DeLong took a big step towards returning to the form what won him the 2014 National Enduro title with a solid 10th overall finish. Riding his GasGas XC300, DeLong turned times that were much closer to the leaders than he has so far this year. However, with the increased speed came mistakes, something the Pennsylvania rider is determined to work on.

  Andrew DeLong:   Today was an improvement but I still had too many mistakes. I’m going faster than I’ve been riding, but when you start picking up the pace you start making little mistakes and that’s where I’m at now. My times are closer to the leaders not, and it’s coming but it’s just a work in progress.

I’m going faster than I’ve been riding, but when you start picking up the pace you start making little mistakes and that’s where I’m at now. My times are closer to the leaders not, and it’s coming but it’s just a work in progress.

  Nick Davis:   The first two tests for me were a struggle, I don’t know why. I’m usually a good mud rider but I was way off the pace. We changed tires before the third test and tweaked some suspension settings and that made a big difference. I was playing catch-up the rest of the day but I managed to work my way into second, which I’m thrilled with since this is my first year with the series. I have the speed; I just don’t have the experience with this format these guys have.

KTM RIDERS SWEEP THE OVERALL PODIUM AT THE DRAGONS BACK NATIONAL ENDURO

Podium.jpg

KTM Riders Sweep the Overall Podium at the Dragons Back National Enduro

Round 4 - AMA National Enduro Championship - May 6, 2018

ARRINGTON,Va. – KTM riders made it a podium sweep on Sunday for Round 4 of the 2018 AMA National Enduro Championship in Arrington, Virginia. Tely Energy KTM's Grant Baylor rode to his first victory of the season, while his older brother and teammate, Steward Baylor, Jr., edged out FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Josh Toth by hundredths of a second to claim second-overall in an intense day of racing at the Dragons Back National Enduro.

 

Welcomed rainfall came down in the morning just before the start of the race, making for ideal conditions in the woods of Virginia. It was a close race between the top four riders all day and three different winners emerged through the six tests. Toth rode his FMF KTM Factory Racing 250 XC-F to a test-win in section three, where he maintained top-five finishes throughout the rest of the tests. Toth and S. Baylor came into the final test practically tied in overall time but a fourth-place finish in the final test gave Toth the third-place position, while reigning champion S. Baylor secured second overall behind his KTM-supported teammate Grant.

 

Toth“I had another good day today at the NEPG in Virginia. The conditions turned out to be perfect with some heavy rain just before the start. I felt like I had a lot of great moments throughout the day but I didn't feel like I ever had a test where I rode my best from start to finish. Regardless, I’m happy to be steadily learning and improving and I’m happy with the way the season is progressing so far. I can hear the top spot of the podium calling my name!”

 

Trail Jesters/KTM Racing's Ben Kelley secured a top-five finish at Round 4 with a consistent string of top-ten finishes. Kelley finished off the day strong with a pair of top-fives in the final two tests, giving him a slight advantage to maintain the fifth-place position overall.
