Grant Baylor picked up where he left off last season by taking a big win at the opening round of the 2016 Kenda AMA National Enduro Series in Sumter, South Carolina.
The N-Fab/Am Pro Yamaha rider grabbed his first career national enduro win at the final round of the 2015 season in Indiana, and kicked off 2016 in similar fashion. The win was a good one for Baylor since he admits he normally doesn’t do well on the tight and sandy trails of Sumter. The South Carolina rider obviously did his homework during the off-season and came into the race prepared and ready for action.
Baylor only won one test on the day (the third test) but his consistently was enough to land him the victory by 18 seconds over runner-up Russell Bobbitt.
“I’m pretty happy to come away from here with the win because I usually don’t do well in Sumter,” said Baylor. “I only won one test but I was right there all day. That win in the third test moved me up from fifth to first and I just rode a consistent race for the rest of the day.”
