It’s billed as one of the three toughest extreme off-road races in America, along with King of the Motos and the Tennessee Knock Out, and now Cody Webb can claim title as the champion of all three.
The Last Dog Standing took place this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA, and the best off-road racers in the country were on hand to take on a mixture of mother nature’s gnarliest terrain and a collection of man-made obstacles.
Despite a crash in Moto 1, Webb came back to finish second behind Taylor Robert. Webb turned things around in Moto 2 by establishing a gap over Robert and the rest of the field, and ultimately won the event overall with a (2-1) score.

Webb reflects, “In the second Moto I started behind Robert and quickly moved into the lead on a rocky hillside. From there I opened up a good gap and maintained it until the finish. My 300 RR eagerly went up each canyon with ease and had no trouble traversing down the rocky waterfall sections. I got in a good flow with the bike and just went from there and had fun.”
“This was my first time at the event and it was awesome… especially with being able to walk away with the victory. I was slightly concerned in the beginning with the high speed sections in all the dust and silt. In the first moto I finished behind Taylor Robert on adjusted time after having a big crash and stopping to check myself that everything was still all good. In the second moto I started behind Robert and quickly moved into the lead on a rocky hillside. From there I opened up a good gap and maintained it until the finish. It was awesome to win and I can’t wait to come back next year.”
