"FMF KTM’s Cody Webb rebounded from a disappointing round two to win the Reno EnduroCross. Rockstar Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker, Webb’s primary championship rival, finished second to keep the championship points lead by a single point.

Ty Tremaine rounded out the podium on the Alta Redshift electric bike to earn the first-ever AMA professional podium for an electric powered motorcycle."

It was awesome to watch Webb pick that track apart, the line he was doing through the matrix was beyond comprehension, and he did it lap after lap absolutely perfectly, THROUGH TRAFFIC! Ty and Alta also won the bracket races, which was pretty cool, and I was super happy for them getting their first podium. He looks absolutely dialed on that bike and their team looks second to none in the pits, so it was well deserved with all the efforts they’ve put in.

It was another good show. I've been to 3 Endurocross' so far and have enjoyed all 3. This track and some of the obstacles sections were definitely more challenging than last year. Adding to JM485 about Webb, I hope we eventually see video of him going through the matrix. Lap after lap, he was absolutely perfect. Tremaine's Alta looked especially good through the Rock sections. Super smooth, hooked up, and fast. It was cool to hear the local crowd cheer him on. They were loud!

The Amateur's put on a great show too. It was a tough track and they battled. Vital member JM485 made the Amateur A main which is a great accomplishment in itself. He rode a great race and then went on to his 2nd class and took the top step on the podium on his trials bike. Good job Josh!

When ya ride and auotmatic kids toy l'm not surprised. Get back to me when Alta makes a real bike that you have to shift.

So you are fine with electric as long as they add weight and compromise performance by adding a transmission?

They'll get there, the Alta goes against everything a die hard moto guy loves but it is the future I believe. There are guys fighting the two stroke cause still and the four stroke is still a gas powered motor. The electric bike will be our ace in the hole when dealing with the tree hugger legislation. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

How does electric bikes go against everything a moto fan loves? Good, close, exciting racing. Bar to bar fighting to win, to be champion. Amazing rides and incredible passing.

If the only reason you're a moto fan is the sounds or having shifters, I dont know what to say but I feel kinda sorry for you

You pointed out the exciting things of racing that can likely still be achieved with an electric bike, it's just most other aspects of riding / racing that will no longer be a factor that some people are disappointed to see go away. Racing and riding lost a little bit with me with the shift to advanced 4 strokes. Feeling like it'll lose even more with these electric bikes. But it's just my opinion.

Thats like comparing a fast kid on a 60 blowing past a dude on a 450.

Sure I love the smell of two strokes or the roar of a full gate start as much as the next guy, but it's hardly close to beeing everything I love as a moto fan, as some people here suggested. The only difference with electric bikes will the shifting but do you really think the technique of changing gear is what's separating the riders? Hardly.

The results would look exactly the same with electric bikes as they do today

Man at a first glance I really thought this thread was going to be about cooper Webb lining up at an Endurocross and winning. Totally forgot about Cody Webb and how good he is LOL

Electric bikes won't make any difference. The people against regular motorcycles don't like mountain bike riders either. The focus will shift to dust and that will shut it all down. The EPA has already started moving in that direction. Do you notice the "if you see dust coming from this construction site please cal 1 800 XXX XXXX" signs.

Just think about the needling that can be done when everyone is on an electric and no sound, "your sag is off bro", "Hey Tomac, you got five spokes missing on your rear", Hey Webb, has she cheated on you yet?". Oh wait, Tomac wears ear plugs.

Pretty cool that Alta got their first pro podium. I might even buy one if they can ever get it to run 3.5 hours on a charge...

If by add weight you mean, cutting weight by adding hollowed moving components instead of solid mass technolgy and making the bike slower by have unlimited potential in the hands of hands of a pro all while add8ng more control as well as a learning curve to seperate the talent, so if that is what you meant by making the bike slower and adding weight then, YES!!!!

Thats what everyone bitched about before 4 strokes. All that did was give them 2 things to bitch about, including neighboring homeowners.

4 strokes are annoying as F. It got really bad when quads went 4 stroke. 4 times the dust and the aggravating racket.

Some people complained about water cooling, Power Valves, Disc Brakes when they hit production bikes.

This proves that E Bikes are competitive in a Pro races!

Hope they are legal in Supercross too!

For those of us that are in Endurocross it's not at all surprising to see Tremaine get on the box. He is a top rider who has finished 3rd in the series a few times and has multiple podiums to his credit. He's just too good to keep off the podium no matter his ride! Alta is extremely lucky to have him!

It's great Alta is in the sport and sponsoring a top rider. More manufacturers doing that the better! Plus it brings that much more exposure to the sport.

As for the rest of the race, Cody's line in the matrix was awesome! Cody is just plain better in Matix's than anyone else.
Bummed Trystan Hart got hurt and will miss the rest of the series! He's a super nice kid and hard worker who has been pushing Cody and Colton.

Track was really fast and jumpy. Fortunately they had a decently hard Matrix and rock section to keep it EX

If Roger D (or anybody else) race an Alta he would finish right around the same spot he would on a Gas bike.?

I was just looking out for dimetime with the roost comment for his safety.? He might not be able to see it coming with the tears in his eyes. ???

Don't even get me started on cars with power steering, if you can't hand crank start your car you shouldn't drive it!
