The Cherokee National Enduro Revisited

A look back at the National Enduro

Grant Baylor grabbed his second win in a row in the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series with a perfect run at last weekend’s Cherokee National Enduro in Greensboro, Georgia. The Tely Energy KTM rider won all seven tests in the 93-mile race and launched himself right into the middle of the championship chase. Here’s one more look at the race thanks to photographer Shan Moore.
