Steward Baylor Wins Tennessee Enduro Race
The AMA Rekluse National Enduro Series in West Point, Tennessee,
was all about Steward Baylor, as the rider turned in a dominant
performance on his way to victory.
Baylor was the top rider in all six of the tests at the fourth round of the Enduro Series, and capped it off with an easy victory. Baylor was 1 minute and 54 seconds ahead of the second-closest rider, defending champion Russell Bobbitt, according to Cycle News.
Baylor's victory was never really in doubt, as the rider attacked the slippery course and never looked back. Bobbitt was in contention toward the end after he made the decision to change his shocks, but couldn't match the pace of the KTM rider.
Third place went to eight-time national champion Michael Lafferty, who played things slow and steady. Lafferty didn't dazzle with speed, but stayed upright the entire day and avoided mistakes, ultimately allowing him to get on the podium. KTM's Cory Buttrick took fourth place.
Baylor now holds the overall lead by 24 points, with Buttrick in second place. Lafferty is 27 points behind Baylor in third.
