KTM’s Baylor Wins Cajun National Enduro
2012 AMA National Enduro Series
KTM support rider Steward Baylor claimed his fourth win of the season at the fifth round of the AMA National Enduro Series in Forest Hill, Louisiana, to further strengthen his hold on the series point standings.
Baylor started the day at the Cajun National Enduro well with a win in the first special test section. His biggest challenger of the day was Husaberg’s Mike Lafferty who was able to take the win at the second test. Baylor came back strong in the third test and also claimed the fast time in the fifth and sixth tests.
At the end of all six tests he was able to edge out Lafferty to claim is fourth win of the season. Now five rounds into the series, Baylor holds a 32 point lead in the series point standings.
Two other KTM riders joined Baylor in the top five. KTM rider Jesse Groemm was able to secure 4th overall while Factory FMF/KTM rider Russell Bobbitt earned a 5th place result. Unfortunately, Bobbitt’s teammate and the winner of third round of the series, Cory Buttrick, suffered a crash early in the first test section injuring his knee. Buttrick was unable to complete the test section and sat out the remainder of the race to get his knee evaluated.
The riders will now take a one month break before returning to the series for the sixth round of the series to be held in Upton, Wyoming, on June 17, 2012.
