The Baylor Brothers, Steward and Grant, sign multi-year deal with FactoryONE Sherco Enduro team to race GNCC and NEPG Championships.

 

FactoryONE Sherco has announced two further big name signings for the 2020 season with Steward Baylor Jr. and Grant Baylor joining the Enduro team. The South Carolina natives penned multi-year agreements to ride the SEF 450 Factory model in both the GNCC and NEPG series starting in January 2020. 

A host of star signings in recent months by the FactoryONE Sherco team is all but complete now with the Baylor brothers following Cody Webb’s big move previously.

“I am excited to get on this new bike and see what we can do with it and put it on the box.” Said Grant Baylor on his switch to Sherco machinery.

“I am honestly still in a bit of shock,” said Ron Sallman, FactoryONE team owner. “First Cody Webb, now Steward and Grant Baylor? The brothers provide FactoryONE Sherco with an immediate opportunity to chase championships and be on the box often in two prestigious off-road series’. Stew is fresh off winning the NEPG championship, finishing only a few points ahead of Grant in second place. They both [also] had strong showings at ISDE. I am really looking forward to seeing what they will do in 2020.”

“Stew and Grant provide us with a big one-two punch on the East coast,” adds team manager, Wayne Dickert. “GNCC is arguably the largest off-road series in the world based on the total number of participants and fans. This provides Sherco USA with an amazing opportunity to bring the brand front and centre in front of thousands of loyal fans. I am excited to get the new season kicked off.”
