Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cody Webb has won the dramatic final round of the 2019 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Bilbao, Spain. Teammate Taddy Blazusiak claimed third overall, just two points behind the runner-up.
On a tight and extremely technical track in the Bizkaia Arena, Bilbao, defending SuperEnduro Champion Cody Webb put in a superb performance to take the overall event win. Coming into the fifth and final round trailing the championship leader by 12 points, the American rider knew he would have to pull out all the stops in order to clinch the 2019 title.
Cody got his night off to the perfect start by posting the fastest time in the Superpole qualification lap, earning himself first gate pick and three valuable championship points in the process. With the first final restarted following a problem with the track, which caused the initial running to be red flagged, Cody tamed the tight, log-strewn course to claim his first win of the night.
