Cody Webb Takes on Graham Jarvis

Recommended Posts

Claiming a debut Hard Enduro Rallye stage win, Webb is seriously shaking things up in what is his first time in a multi-day GPS styled navigation hard enduro. 

Topping the standings on day two, Webb moves within two minutes of overall race leader Graham Jarvis (Husqvarna).

Jarvis, who started day two first, had his work cut out fending off Webb. For the majority of the day the duo were wheel-to-wheel. 

Entering one of the final climbs, Jarvis had the lead but failed to make it up first time. Dropping back down to give it another crack, Webb snuck past, scaled the climb and held on to take the day win.

With Webb and Jarvis out front, it was a lonely ride for Alfredo Gomez finishing nine minutes behind Webb in third.

Damn IT !!! :foul::rant:Not how it should have ended !! 

Graham Jarvis has claimed an unexpected victory in the 2017 Red Bull Minas Riders with the four-day event cut short to two.

In what seems to be a series of events beyond the organisers’ control, Martin Freindametz and his Xventure team were forced to bring a halt to proceedings at the end of day two.

“We’ve been talking with all the environmental authorities here for one year to define all the tracks,” told Freindametz. “We have authorisations from all parts. 

“Unfortunately, at the last moment, police asked us to make further risk analysis. We decided to cooperate with them and as a result had to bring the event to a premature end.”

As a result, Jarvis is this year’s Red Bull Minas Riders champion.

In what was building up to be a momentous battle to the finish, Hard Enduro Rallye rookie Cody Webb was proving a serious contender to Jarvis. Runner-up on day one, Webb then beat Jarvis for victory on day two and closed the gap to his rival to two minutes.

With the final overall classification standing as per day two’s results, Webb ends his participation in Red Bull Minas Riders as the runner-up.

Having won the prologue, Alfredo Gomez was unable to properly defend his Minas Riders crown when he injured his shoulder on day one. Soldiering on through day two, Gomez not completes the podium in third overall.

Can't tell, but the type of terrain those dudes ride is a solid argument for the pds  system

Webb can/has the possibility of winning at almost any offroad dirtbike disipline that he enters. Look at him racing the ama west hare scramble this year...he entered and won it.

Doesn't seem to bother Jarvis, but then again what does. NOTHING!

Ya my buddy recently bought a 250XCW after riding linkaged bikes for years got to go for a ride. We discussed PDS and honestly both of us really liked the rear suspension and we are riding a lot of tight/gnarly/technical single track where IMO having the PDS excels

So for me its really using the right tool (bike) for the job and in the right conditions PDS has its place.

As well @hawaiidirtrider posted day 1 and 2 here and man day 2 looked GNARLY :)

Oh, is that a personal attack from some little boy trying to swing his tiny little manhood with the big boys? Come back when you grow some hair on that smooth crotch.

I find it really funny that Cody is running a GPS based event after he bitched about it after KOM this year. Still cool to see him doing well though.

There was an Enduro21.com article about Webb switching to PDS

Taddy's just helping out I guess. Saw something about it in the Hard Enduro preview vid: https://www.redbull.tv/video/AP-1RKYY3FDH1W11/2017-season-preview?playlist=playlists::9428aafd-7daa-4893-89a2-b5c97bd62f05
