Tely Energy Racing KTM's Grant Baylor won every test en route to a dominating win at the Rattlesnake Enduro this past weekend, round 5 of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series in Cross Fork, Pennsylvania. After over 60 miles of racing and six tests, Grant finished the event with a 57.867-second margin of victory over Steward Baylor, making his second win in three races.
His brother and teammate, Steward Baylor, rode a consistent race and was just out of reach of Grant. Although his runner-up finish keeps him sitting 36 points ahead of Grant in the series standings. Steward crashed in a rocky section in test 4, reinjuring his knee and forcing the South Carolina rider to back his pace down.
Andrew DeLong hadn't ridden a National Enduro in four years, but the 2014 AMA National Enduro Champion showed up on his Phoenix Racing Honda CRF450RX GNCC bike and came away with an impressive third overall. XC Gear/Enduro Engineering/Husqvarna's Cory Buttrick was fourth overall, his best performance of the season. Just over seven seconds behind Buttrick came Evan Smith, who put his Max Motorsports/FXR Racing/Husqvarna into fifth.
Beta USA's Mike Witkowski captured sixth, just ahead of Tely Energy Racing's Liam Draper. Draper's finish was also good enough for first in the Pro2 class, which marked his first win in the division. Ninth and 10th went to Beta-mounted Kyle McDonal and Noah Clark on his Yamaha. Eight-time AMA National Enduro champion Mike Lafferty showed up and finished 11th overall and second AA rider.
