Led once again by medalists Cody Webb and Maria Forsberg, a competitive group of Motorcycle-Superstore.com Bell Helmet riders had another solid showing in Global X Games action Saturday at Barcelona Olympic Stadium.

Webb earned his second consecutive X Games medal in the men's Enduro X competition, following a runner-up finish in Foz do IguaƧu, Brazil, with a bronze medal result in Barcelona.

In the women's race, Motorcycle Superstore's Maria Forsberg grabbed another silver by coming in second to Spanish favorite Laia Sanz, who has now won two Global X Games in a row.

Webb finished second in Heat 2 to advance to the final, where he battled some of the top outdoor riders in the world. Webb held down fourth place for much of the race despite a hard fall that left his back scratched up.

Fortunately for him, Webb didn't lose a position in the crash and eventually passed multi-time EnduroCross champion Taddy Blazusiak on the final lap to secure third place.

Motorcycle Superstore's other rider that earned a position in the Men's Final, Gary Sutherlin, finished seventh overall. He was sixth in his heat before ralling to finish fourth in the last-chance qualifier to make the final.

Bryan Roper was ninth in Heat 1 before finishing seventh in the LCQ, while Ryan Sandoval was 11th in Heat 2 and 11th in the LCQ. Neither man advanced to the final.

Forsberg, a two-time X Games champ, was second in the Women's Enduro X seeding sessions and raced at the front of the field for most of the main event. Forsberg now has two silvers in two X Games events in 2013.

Kacy Martinez got the holeshot on the Women's Enduro X field when a group of riders slammed together in the first turn. She eventually raced to a fifth-place finish.
