SPRING BRANCH, Texas – FactoryONE Sherco has welcomed Cody Webb to the FactoryONE Sherco Enduro team.
The Californian recently signed a multi-year agreement to ride the SE 300 Factory Sherco in Hard Enduro, AMA EnduroCross presented by Fox and other prestigious events globally.
“I am super excited about representing Sherco USA,” said Webb. “I had a great relationship with them on the trials side in the past, before making the switch to enduro and having more success than I ever imagined. I’m now looking forward to riding with a brand I believe in and promoting the sport of hard enduro and trials. Sherco USA is giving me the opportunity to do what I love most and help achieve my future racing goals.”
Like the majority of top hard enduro racers, Webb got his professional start riding trials, and not just for any team. Webb rode for Ryan Young himself. Beginning when Webb was 15, he joined the Ryan Young Products Trials Team aboard a Sherco. Webb immediately became one of the top stars in trials. In his many years on the team he learned and honed his skills, eventually reaching his goal of becoming the 2010 AMA/NATC Mototrials champion.
“The history we have with Cody could not be denied,” said Young. “It is going to be great having Cody on the team. Like before, all of us here at RYP will be working to help him and the FactoryONE team to achieve their goals. Most of the people Cody worked with when he was 15 are still here, it is like having one of the family come back home.”
Webb’s entry into enduro came in the form of EnduroCross, where he has won three titles. (2014, ’15 and ’17) He is also the 2018 FIM SuperEnduro champion. In addition to these championships, he’s scored six medals in ESPN’s X-Games. Webb put the Hard Enduro scene on notice in 2016. Arriving at the Red Bull Hare Scramble as a relative unknown, on one of the world’s hardest courses, he finished on the podium in second-place, backing it up with a solid third position the following year. He is the first and only American to do so at this prestigious event.
“It is an understatement to say how excited we are to have Cody on team FactoryONE Sherco,” said Ron Sallman, team owner. “To have someone of his caliber, well it almost leaves you speechless as his riding speaks for itself. In addition to his riding, we see tremendous value and potential with his engineering background. I am not sure there is a better ambassador for the sport of Hard Enduro than Cody Webb. He will always have a place here at Sherco USA, long after he retires from racing.”
Webb’s first race will be the King of the Motos on Feb. 8. He will compete in the entire American Hard Enduro series as well as the Kenda Tennessee Knockout and select European hard enduros like Romaniacs and Erzberg. He will also race the full AMA EnduroCross season.
