Morgantown, W.Va. – Factory FMF/KTM rider Kailub Russell continued to confirm himself, gaining the leading spot on the podium again. Round 9 of The 2015 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Nation Series provided by Maxxis, an AMA Championship game, gave Russell his eighth success of the period. The AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC was held at the largest ski resort in West Virginia, Snowshoe Hill.

The current XC1 Pro points leader Russell began on the initial row of the special live engine beginning, duplicating the start of GNCC’s birth race the Blackwater 100. After taking the early lead, Russell would certainly begin to feel pressure from Rocky Hill ATV * MC/KR4/FAR’s and West Virginia’s very own Thad DuVall. DuVall made the hand down lap 3 and remained to lead until Russell made the pass back on lap seven. He would certainly hold onto 2nd place

” I type of rode around there for about half the race, as well as once I got whatever found out I went for it and had the ability to pull the lead at the end,” stated Russell.

After struggling in the first half of the period the challenging Snowshoe track conditions didn’t decrease the N-Fab AmPro Yamaha’s, Jordan Ashburn. He won his initial podium of the season, rounding out the top 3 in the XC1 class.

” I’m simply pleased to be back where I understand I should as well as can be,” reported Ashburn, “I have actually had struggles and also I dislike it has actually taken this long, but I ready currently.”

In addition to the full GNCC routine, AirGroup/Rockstar Energy/Husqvarna backed biker Ryan Sipes has been hectic with competing for the past 2 rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Champion. He has been boosting all period completing 2nd in the past 2 rounds. Regrettably, Sipes harmed his knee, ultimately ending his day.

” I struck my knee on something, I’m unsure if it was a rock or handlebar,” stated Sipes, “however it inflated and also I could not hold on any longer or utilize my knees to hold.”

JCR Honda’s Chris Bach preserved a consistent placement throughout the race and completed fourth, adhered to by N-Fab AmPro Yamaha’s Grant Baylor in fifth and also Factory FMF/KTM’s Taylor Robert in 6th.

Moto-Tech KTM’s Guardian Baylor takes home 7th area, N-Fab AmPro Yamaha’s Daniel Milner in 8th, Funmart Cycle/FLY/RidePG. com’s Adam Bonneur in 9th and also Maxxis/Fly/Factory Connection’s Chris Douglas completed out the XC1 Pro top ten.
