Thor’s Kailub Russell Narrowly Grabs His Fifth GNCC Win of the Season

In one of the closest races GNCC spectators had seen in some time, Thor’s Kailub Russell earned his fifth race win of the season as he bested fellow Thor rider Charlie Mullins by just one second during Round 11 in St. Clairsville, Ohio. Russell started the race in second and quickly took over the lead on the second lap. Mullins closed the gap on Russell, eventually taking over the lead, but a few mistakes on the final lap gave Russell the advantage at the end. With the win, Russell made up ground in the chase for the championship, and now sits only four points behind the leader.

Also at the GNCC, Thor’s Maria Forsberg not only won her women’s class for the 11th time this season, she took the overall against the entire field of 25 different classes during the morning bike races.

At Round 5 of the EnduroCross Series, Thor’s Taylor Robert and Mike Brown put on a good show for the Denver fans. Both riders won their heat races, giving them good gate pick for the main event. Robert and Brown both grabbed good starts and were battling before Robert moved back from second to fourth. Not one to back down, Robert put on a charge and worked his way back up to second, while Brown rounded out the podium in third. Robert now sits in second in the points, just two points ahead of Brown.
