Last year’s winner Kyle Redmond looked to defend his title in the Pro category but couldn’t outlast the new international talent that came to Calgary for the first time. It was AMA Endurocross champion Cody Webb who took to the top of the podium after beating out the competition by a landslide.

“This is my first time in Calgary but I knew I was in for a very unique competition. I’ve raced a lot of different endurocross tracks all over the world but there’s nothing else like the Red Bull Rocks and Logs track,” explained Webb. “Most tracks I race are very similar and well groomed but this was very unpredictable with some tricky natural features and tough weather conditions.”

The inspiration behind the design of the track by pro rider Shane Cuthbertson (Airdrie, AB), was meant to enfuse elements that local riders find in Alberta’s mountainous terrain, mixed with technical design elements from Enduros and Harescrambles across the globe brought to Wild Rose MX Park, in the heart of Calgary.
