Cody Webb – King of King of the Motos
How tough can motorcycle enduro get?! Bajaj, Dakar, Erzberg, Red Bull Romaniacs, Roof of Africa, Six Days. If you haven’t broken any bones yet in any one of those enduros – or any other endure, for that matter – try North America’s toughest extreme enduro, the King of the Motos.
First held in 2012 as the motorcycle class to the grueling King of the Hammers, King of Moto has quickly become a bucket list race for the fearless few crazy enough to tackle the unrelenting desert dust and rock crawling presented by the Means Dry Lake at Johnson Valley, California.
The first King of Moto was won by the then-36-year-old British enduro guru Graham Jarvis on a 2-stroke Husaberg TE300. Jarvis, aka G-Force Jarvis, has won just about every title out there, including Erzberg.
The 2013 King of the Motos was won by then-24-year-old American rider Cody Webb on a factory Beta 300 RR. In 2014, he returned to repeat the success, making him, thus far, the King of King of the Motos.
