Steward Baylor, Jr.
2017 Full Gas Sprint Enduro Champion
2017 National Enduro Champion
Steward Baylor is the lead player in the Tely Energy Racing Team for 2018 and 2019. He has had one of the most decorated careers, breaking almost every age record as he came through the ranks, although he seems to be a veteran after racing professionally for 7 years he just turned 23 years old. This rider is one of two riders to ever hold the points lead in all three series at the same time as we saw in March after winning the opening round of GNCC and National Enduro where he then landed on the podium in the next 10 events he lined up to.
In 2017, Baylor wanted nothing more than to be back where he was before his injuries so he started working with a new trainer and changing his plan to help strengthen his wrist as well as everything else to compensate for injuries. We have seen not just consistency all year but consistency on the podium where he has landed almost every race this season, his plans for 2018 are to win all three major OFFROAD series in the US and at only 23 years old he has the potential and now the knowledge to do so with the backing of Tely Energy Racing and all of our awesome sponsors.
2017 GNCC 5th place
Grant Baylor, the younger brother of Steward, is the only person to beat some of his brothers age records. He was a 2 time XC2 pro class champion by the age of 16, as well as a 2 time amateur overall champion in both the GNCC's and National Enduro series. He finished 2017 with a third place finish in National Enduro pro class points standings and fifth in the GNCC XC1 pro points. Grant (the more quiet of the brothers) has always sat back and learned from his older brothers mistakes making Grant a very smart rider. Although he is more reserved off the track, he is no slouch on the bike.
For 2018 Grant plans to build on his year being a fresh 20 years old, he wants to be the youngest rider to win a GNCC championship and battle his brother for championships in both the National Enduro series and Full Gas Sprint Enduro series.
