Round four of the 2024 Redline Oil AMA National Enduro Series presented by MSR and Beta Motorcycles, the historic Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Cherokee National Enduro in Greensboro, GA, sees Josh Toth take his third consecutive win on the season ahead of Johnny Girroir and Steward Baylor.

Josh Toth is on a roll right now. Taking his third win of the NEPG season at the historic Cherokee National Enduro, the Enduro engineering GASGAS rider was on it from the get-go in Greensboro.

Toth came out in the 10-mile first test with a commanding advantage of 43 second and went on to build his lead, winning 5 of the 6 counted tests (after test 7 was thrown out on the day). By day’s end Toth won by 1 minute and 28 seconds, a healthy margin in this company: “I feel like I caught the boys sleeping in test 1”, Toth Said. “I was able to build a pretty good lead and from there I just tried to be smooth and consistent the rest of the day.”

Toth now has a 21 point lead in the series standings over Steward Baylor Jr.


Girroir kinda slow to find the flow

Second overall on the day was FMF Factory KTM rider Johnny Girroir. After missing the previous round due to injury, Johnny was able to come back swinging to grab the runner up position. “I started the day off kinda slow”, Girroir Said. “By the end of the day I found a good flow and was feeling pretty good and I was glad to get a test win in the middle of the day.”

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Red Bear Racing Kawasaki rider Steward Baylor Jr took the third spot on the overall podium: “I knew Josh was going to be good here today and hard to beat. I tried to hammer down and put a charge against him. I was glad to see I finally won a test at the end of the day but bummed to see that section thrown out. It was a good day for our whole team with me on the podium and Rachel winning the Womens Class.”

Grant Baylor, the Babbitts Online Monster Energy Kawasaki rider took the fourth overall position while Coastal GasGas’ Ryder Lafferty rounded out the top five. Sixth overall was AM-Pro Yamahas Ricky Russell, who also had a return from an injury ride.

Max Motorsports Husqvarna rider Evan Smith finished the day in seventh place overall after a penalty was assessed for missing a portion of the course in test five.


Bubz does it in Pro 2

First place in the NE PRO2 class and eigth overall was Nathaniel ‘Bubz’ Tasha. Bubz broke the winning streak Grant Davis has had this season and put his AM-Pro Yamaha on the top step. Bubz said: “My bike is dialed especially for enduros. I don’t have to worry about set up and I can just do my thing on the track. That helped get the win today.”

FMF Factory KTM Landers Racing rider Grant Davis was battling some broken ribs and was able to still manage second place in the NE PRO2 class and 9th overall. “I broke some ribs at another race a few weeks ago, so I was battling the pain a little bit today and just tried to be smooth.” Said Davis.

A new face to enduros, Tyler Palmer aboard his Husqvarna took his first podium at his first ever enduro with 3rd in NE PRO2 and 10th Overall. “I had a lot of fun today learning the enduros. This was the first time I ever rode one and it feels good to put it on the podium. I was pumped to win a couple tests too.” Said Palmer.

Keeping her win streak alive for the 2024 season in the Womens Elite class was Rocky Mountain ATV/MC rider Rachael Archer. Second place was Sherco rider Rachel Gutish, followed by Enduro Engineering GasGas rider Shelby Turner in the 3rd spot.
