Kailub Russell Makes it Two-in-a-Row in GNCC
FMF KTM Factory Team rider Kailub Russell took another dominating win to make it two in a row for the first two rounds of the GNCC Series. This time he crossed the finish line 2 minutes and 13 seconds ahead of the 2 nd place rider. His teammate, Kacy Martinez, also took the win in the Women’s WXC GNCC class after a come-from-behind charge through the pack. Both riders are powered by VP Racing Fuels.
Russell had a great jump off the start of the XC1 Pro class and pulled the holeshot as the riders rounded the first corner. His teammate, Russell Bobbitt, made a guest appearance at this round and followed Russell’s pace coming around 2 nd in the first corner. The two KTM riders led the field as the riders headed into the woods for the first lap.
Bobbitt dropped to 3 rd later on in the first lap while Russell remained out front. A few miles into the first lap, Russell got stuck in the mud and dropped to 4 th place. “I lost a few positions but once I recovered we got to another mud hole and I went straight through it while the others went around. That line allowed me to move back into 2 nd , and then shortly after, back into the lead,” stated Russell.
Russell had pulled a pretty good lead on the second lap before he got stuck in a massive mud hole. “I sank in and it was like quicksand,” he reported. “It took about three guys to help me out and I lost a ton of time but because of my lead, I was able to remain in the top position.”
At the end of the grueling three-hour race, Russell pulled away from the field each lap and eventually grew his lead to a comfortable two minutes before crossing the finish line to take the win and increase his lead in the championship standings.
Russell now has a 10 point lead as the riders head to round three which will be held in Morganton, NC on March 29, 2015.
