Lynden, WA (March 16, 2015) -- FMF/RPM/KTM Racing Team Maxxis’s Ty Tremaine clinched the 2015 FIM SuperEnduro Junior World Championship at the final round held this past Saturday, March 14, in Cahors, France, while Cody Webb finished 2nd in the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship.
Tremaine competed in the SuperEnduro World series for the first time this season. He had a dominant start with a clean sweep in the Junior class at the opening round in Gdansk. He went on to claim multiple heat wins throughout the series and additional overall wins (Guadalajara and France). Coming into the final round in France, he had an 11 point lead over second place. Tremaine rode well all day despite a crash early on in the first heat where he charged his way up to 2nd. He took the next two heat wins, the overall, and the 2015 FIM Junior World SuperEnduro Championship title, becoming the first American to do so.
“Winning the Championship feels amazing, all of the hard work has paid off and I couldn’t be happier to bring home the title for team and for the US” said Ty Tremaine.
RPM Racing Team’s Cody Webb also had an exceptional overall finish in the SuperEnduro Championship. He came into the final round in Cahors, France, third in points and part of a three-way battle for second place. Webb started the day by taking the Super Pole. Then in heat one, he passed the leader Taddy Blazusiak in the 2nd lap and took the win. In heat two, Cody had to work his way up from 7th place position on the first lap. Midway through the race he was up to 3rd, but couldn’t catch the leaders. In the final heat, Webb battled with Jonny Walker, passing him at one point before Walker passed back. Webb finished 2nd in heat three which gave him 2nd overall in France and he secured 2nd in the 2015 FIM World SuperEnduro Championship.
“It was a great way to cap off the SuperEnduro season with finishing second overall’ said Webb. “It was a learning process with the new program and KTM in the beginning, but we figured it out by mid season. I was happy to steadily crawl back into the points after being in fifth and get one overall GP win before the end of the season. For my first full season I was pumped to finish second and glad to use this series as a precursor to the AMA EnduroCross series.”
