2014 Last Dog Standing ResultsIt’s billed as one of the three toughest extreme off-road races in America, along with King of the Motos and the Tennessee Knock Out, and now Cody Webb can claim title as the champion of all three.
The Last Dog Standing took place this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif., and the best off-road racers in the country were on hand to take on a mixture of mother nature’s gnarliest terrain and a collection of man-made obstacles.GEICO BVeta’s Webb was the Top Dog on the day while the others rolled over or played dead. Joining Webb on the overall podium were KTM riders Taylor Robert and Kyle Redmond, respectively.Cody described his race in his own words: “This was my first time at the event and it was awesome… especially with being able to walk away with the victory. I was slightly concerned in the beginning with the high speed sections in all the dust and silt.“In the first moto I finished behind Taylor Robert on adjusted time after having a big crash and stopping to check myself that everything was still all good. In the second moto I started behind Robert and quickly moved into the lead on a rocky hillside. From there I opened up a good gap and maintained it until the finish. It was awesome to win and I can’t wait to come back next year.”2014 Last Dog Standing Results: 1. Cody Webb (BETA) 2. Taylor Robert (KTM) 3. Kyle Redmond (KTM) 4. Cory Graffuner (KTM) 5.

KTM Super ADV R + Lightning Motorcycles’ Richard Hatfield
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends—the weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams rides KTM’s new 1290 Super Adventure R. This hardcore ADV bike is big, powerful, and a true expert-level machine. Interestingly, it has multiple points of adjustment within its highly capable electronics package, and Don discovered several big surprises where the bike changed personality completely. His is an intriguing look at one of the most capable off road ADV bikes on the market today.
In the second segment, I chat with Richard Hatfield, CEO of Lightning motorcycles. This silicon valley based manufacturer was founded in 2006, and having racked up several notable race victories (including Pikes Peak in 2013 with the late Carlin Dunne on board) Lightning have certainly dominated in racing terms. In another first, Lightning has just announced a new rapid-charging battery technology that may well bring electric motorcycles into becoming real-world, practical transport.
So from all of us here at Motos & Friends… we hope you enjoy this episode!
