Ryan Sipes made a triumphant return to the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series by taking a dominating win at round seven of the series in Glen Daniel, West Virginia.

After a three-race layoff, the Costal Racing Husqvarna rider proved he still knows his way around a sprint course by winning nine of 12 tests over the course of the two-day event, which was held on a nine-hole golf course. Yes, an active golf course!

Photographer Darrin Chapman was on hand to document the event in photos.
