GEICO Motorcycle Beta rider Cody Webb clinched his first GEICO Motorcycle EnduroCross Series championship Saturday, ending the five-year reign of Poland’s Taddy Blazusiak.

“Winning the championship this year is huge,” Webb said. “Last year I broke my foot but came out strong at the end of the year. I knew I had the confidence and the ability to get it done after the 2013 season ended.

“I put a lot of hard work and dedication in this year and had a lot of help from my family and my sponsors. I finished on the podium every round, which I needed to do to get the championship.”

Ending the 2014 season with three overall wins and a podium finish in all eight rounds of competition, Webb was able to dethrone Blazusiak by 12 points.

“The comeback after last year is really big,” Webb said. “I knew it would be important to be consistent, especially when I realized the level of competition this year. The other top two guys that finished up on the podium the rest of the season were right there with me every single race pushing hard.

“It seemed like we could never get away from each other. In that final stretch there though, they had a couple of races where they faltered. I think that was the key to win this championship, being perfect every single round. Even if I wasn’t going to win, I was still in contention up near the front gaining valuable points.”

Not allowing much time for his first EnduroCross championship to sink in, Webb is already plotting his next move for the 2015 season to double up his recent success.

“Moving forward I want to strive for that championship again next year,” Webb said. “I need to do what I did to be in the top third to back it up. Everyone else is riding awesome. With all the other guys stepping it up huge, I’m trying to step up my game even more for next year to get the job done.”
