KTM’s Cody WEBB secures his second overall victory in the 2015-16 Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship with a win in Germany.Remaining fixed on the top of the podium in the Prestige class, USA’s WEBB delivered the goods once again to claim his second win of the series. KTM’s Jonny WALKER (GB) took the runner-up position while Colton HAAKER (USA-Husqvarna) recorded his debut podium with third in Riesa.
On a course that was demanding and unforgiving, it was WEBB who proved the most consistent of his classmates on the night to take the win. Placing third in the Akrapovic SuperPole behind HAAKER and Taddy BLAZUSIAK (PL-KTM), Webb stepped things up with a win in the opening race of the night.

Colton Haaker keeps up the heat in Germany
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker welcomed in the New Year in style by finishing third overall at the second round of the 2015/16 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Germany. Narrowly missing out on a podium result at the series’ opening event in Poland, in Germany Haaker had the speed to win.
Like all of the fastest riders in the Prestige class, Haaker endured his fair share of misfortune. Falling three times in the opening final – having topped the Superpole – Colton then fell twice in the reversed start order second final before crashing at the start of the third and closing final.
