There's no doubting the raw talent of Cody Webb in Hard Enduro, where the American has mixed it up with the finest talents on more than one occasion.
The likes of Graham Jarvis, Jonny Walker, Alfredo Gómez and Wade Young are all well aware of who Webb is and what he's capable of, even if his greatest achievements to date have come in his native US.
Webb is considered one of the finest specialists in the AMA EnduroCross Championship and at the X Games. He divulged his secrets to us, letting us in on how he's mastering the toughest of disciplines in Hard Enduro.
Watch the video below and get the inside track on his riding set-up.
Webb loves riding, pure and simple, and as such doesn't pass up an opportunity to get out on his enduro machine. One example is his ride around Donner Ski Ranch's pistes, along with Taylor Robert, to demonstrate his skills and check out some challenging terrain.

In last year's Red Bull Hare Scramble – widely considered the toughest and most demanding race on the Hard Enduro calendar – Webb showed that despite being an event novice, his technical abilities and pure speed were of a superior quality. It showed in the final results, as he astounded everyone with an unexpected second-place finish, a result that felt more like a victory to him.
"I'm the first American on the podium here,” said Webb at the time. “It's an honour to represent my country in Hard Enduro in this way."
Webb has really excelled in the Red Bull Tennessee Knockout, a Hard Enduro event that's quickly established itself as the leading extreme enduro race in the US.
"I know how to adapt to difficult terrain," he says. "That helps me make very few errors."
