I believe he ended up 4th overall for the combined KOM results, Max Gerston edged him out for third. I watched his interview and despite some issues in the final race he seemed pretty upbeat and focused on the fun stuff. Good to see. Not sure how many other gassers were in the field but I know local AZ up and comer James Flynn was out there on his 2018 XC 250 as well.

I know the commentators were horrible. I was yelling at my screen trying to watch it and listen to them. I swear the one guy had never actually swung his leg over a bike before.
I caught them a few times calling Noah Kepple's bike a KTM..

Great race. Navigation looked killer hard.

A bunch of 12 year old flatbillers could have commentated that race better.

Yes, the commentary was pretty painful at times.

I have to tip my hat to Cody Webb as the only pro to finish the entire race in the allowed time Sunday. All of the others did the same as the amateurs.

Agreed, though I am curious to hear more details. I have little doubt that Cody Webb wouldn't have still beaten the field, likely by a large margin, but I am hearing that there was a bit of a debacle with the missed checkpoint #2. Basically every pro but David Kamo missed it. Apparently several riders later went back to cross the check after learning that they had missed it. There was some confusion about whether or not checks needed to be completed in order, and I never heard if cody ended up going through that check or not. But I read that some riders claimed to have expended upwards of 45 minutes getting back to the missed check, but at the time of turning back, were not far off of Cody's pace.

Unfortunate circumstances and it would be interesting to see what the written rule (if any) is on this matter for KOM.
