Grant Baylor Wins Alligator National Enduro

 

 

The win made it two in a row for the Baylor family, as Grant’s older brother, Steward, won the opening round of the series last month in Sumter, South Carolina.

Grant came into the final test of the day sitting 12 seconds behind Steward. Test six would turn out to be the tightest test of the day, which played right into Grant’s wheelhouse. The South Carolina rider excels in the tight stuff, and he dominated the final test, putting him 15 seconds ahead of his brother at the end of the day for the overall win.

Midway into the event, Grant’s day didn’t appear to be going in the right direction, however, as a course marking issue in test three resulted in some of the competitors – including Grant – riding a section of the course twice, while other riders benefitted from a shortcut that opened up as a result of the marking issue.

Grant lost about a minute to some of the top Pro riders in test three because of the incident. However, the promoters properly removed the test from the overall scoring, which put all of the riders back on equal ground for the rest of the event.
