Over the past two years, the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series offers competitors a unique opportunity to race on a full-fledged golf course. Something that is kind of a pipe dream for dirt bikers.

The owners of the Hidden Valley Golf Course near Glen Daniel, West Virginia, have ties to dirt biking and in an effort to bring business to their country club during the off-season, they agreed to host a round each of the past two years of the Full Gas Sprint Enduro series. A big win-win for both the golf course and sprint enduro racers.

This year’s event marked the final round of the FGSE series and it was where the 2018 series title was decided. The championship battle came down to Steward Baylor and Josh Strang, and Baylor held a slim two-point lead going into the race.

Strang was strong on Saturday, winning four of the six tests, while Baylor struggled. The combination of the two finishes left Strang with the upper hand, needing only to finish third on Sunday to clinch the title. And while Baylor was unstoppable on Sunday, winning all six tests, Strang finished a solid second to claim the 2018 Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro title.
