 ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S THAD DUVALL RACES TO THE WIN AT THE CAJUN CLASSIC NATIONAL ENDURO

 Josh Strang finishes 8th in the pro class  

  The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Off-road team made their way to central Louisiana for round 3 of 2017 at the Cajun Classic National Enduro. The southern weather hit with a downpour of rain the night before the race and into the morning. As the sun broke, the weather cleared, but damage to the course caused the race to go from seven tests to four tests total.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Thad Duvall charged off of the start and never turned back. The slick test was no match for his skill in the muddy terrain as he finished the first test 1st place by 7 seconds. This win set the pace for the rest of the day. Duvall rode fast through the tough conditions and finished test two, the longest test of the day, in front by 27 seconds for a total of a 34 second lead. Test three and four continued in the same fashion with Duvall increasing his lead on those behind him leading him to win his first National Enduro race!

“I’ve been working really hard on a few things at home and I think it paid off this weekend,” said Duvall. “I’ve got a track at the house I’ve been practicing on and I feel like I was better in the tight woods because of the work I’ve been putting in on that track. The tests were gnarly and the rain really made things interesting. It was muddy and there were a lot of ruts and I like that kind of stuff, so everything worked out for me this weekend.”   

Josh Strang had a tough start to the day and struggled with the slick, mud-trodden course finishing outside of the top 10 for the first two tests. Test three, which was 6.5 miles long, is where Strang showed the most resilience and finished his best of the day with 7th place in that test. He powered through to finish 8th overall in the pro class.  

Josh Strang and Thad Duvall make their way to Peru, Indiana next weekend for the X-Factor GNCC May 7th.

Bobbitt Prevails Through Muddy Conditions to Earn a Podium Finish at Cajun Classic National Enduro

Round 3 – AMA National Enduro Series – April 30, 2017

FOREST HILL, La. – FMF KTM Factory Racing Team’s Russell Bobbitt made his first podium appearance of the season on Sunday at the Cajun Classic National Enduro in Forest Hills, Louisiana. KTM-supported rider Steward Baylor Jr. edged out Bobbitt to claim the 2nd place position and maintain the overall points lead after three rounds of racing in the 2017 AMA National Enduro Series.

Heavy downpours on Saturday night made for interesting race conditions on Sunday and as a result, the program was shortened from seven tests down to four. SRT/KTM’s S. Baylor managed to keep himself in a steady 2nd place position all day despite the muddy conditions, while Bobbitt and his FMF KTM Factory Racing Teammate, Kailub Russell, each saw their share of struggles on the course.

Bobbitt had a rough start to the day with a 7th place finish in test one but the five-time AMA National Enduro Champion bounced back with a smooth, consistent performance in the final three tests, capturing 3rd place in each of the three tests. Bobbitt went down a couple of times in the final test but he was able to hold strong and maintain his 3rd place position through the end of the day.

Bobbitt: “The downpour overnight made for some sloppy joes out on the trail today. I knew it was going to be bad when people were getting stuck in the transfer section to the first test! I was on row 40, which had less-than-desirable rut depth. I picked good lines almost all day and only dropped the bike once in the last test. The third test was the longest and most fun section to me as it had the misty sandy soil and wasn’t as badly deteriorated. It felt good to get back on the podium.”

Kailub Russell had a good start to the day as he finished 4th in the opening test. However, the four-time GNCC National Champion went over the bars in the second test and struggled to recover from the hard crash. Despite the pain, Russell kept his head down and pushed on to finish 4th in tests two and three. In the fourth and final test, Russell got stuck and spent time pulling his bike out of the mud hole, causing him to finish 6th in test four. Despite the tough conditions, Russell was able to salvage 4th overall for the day where he now sits 3rd place in the championship standings.

Russell: “I actually felt good coming into the day and good after the first test but I went over the bars pretty hard in the second test and I struggled after that.”

SRT/KTM’s Cory Buttrick finished 6th overall for the day, while KTM-mounted riders Jesse Groemm and Chase Hayes rounded out the top ten overall.

DuVall Takes Cajun Classic National Enduro Win

Forest Hills, LA (April 30, 2017) – Thad DuVall claimed his first national enduro win of the 2017 season at the Cajun Classic National Enduro in Forest Hills, Louisiana this weekend – round three of the 2017 Kenda AMA National Enduro Series presented by Moose Racing.

Torrential rains on Saturday night made for a muddy course on Sunday morning and forced the event to be shorted to four tests, but gave DuVall the perfect opportunity to utilize his mud riding skills. The West Virginia rider dominated the event, winning all four tests and taking the overall victory by a minute-and-ten-seconds over runner-up Steward Baylor. DuVall won the opening test of the day by seven seconds and then increased his lead with each successive test.

“I’ve been working really hard on a few things at home and I think it paid off this weekend,” said DuVall. “I’ve got a track at the house I’ve been practicing on and I feel like I was better in the tight woods because of the work I’ve been putting in on that track. The tests were gnarly and the rain really made things interesting. It was muddy and there were a lot of ruts and I like that kind of stuff, so everything worked out for me this weekend.”

Baylor extended his point lead in the series standings to 13 points with his runner-up finish. Like DuVall, the SRT Racing KTM rider was consistent, finishing second in each of the four tests.

“Thad was on rails and there was just no beating him today,” said Baylor. “I didn’t make too many bad mistakes considering the conditions, just a few minor things in each test. I got stuck a couple of times, but we haven’t have a mud race in a long time, so I guess I wasn’t as sharp as I needed to be and we all know Thad is a killer mud rider.”

Baylor now has three national enduro podiums in a row, including a win at the series opener in South Carolina.

Russell Bobbitt was third on his FMF KTM Factory Racing 300 two-stroke, the Georgia rider making amends for his 10th place finish at the previous round.

“It was definitely tough conditions and I’m happy to be back on the podium,” said Bobbitt. “I knew Kailub (Russell) and I were close on time going into the final test and I just kept pushing and I was able to finish ahead of him.”

Bobbitt actually fell in a couple of times in the final test, but still managed to beat out Kailub by 30 seconds for the final podium position.

Kailub Russell finished fourth despite riding through the pain of a hard crash in test two.

“I felt good in the first test but I went over the bars in the second test and I just struggled after that,” said Russell. “I just wasn’t able to be as precise in the last two tests.”

Fifth went to Rekluse Expert-AA rider Thorn Devlin, who took advantage of an earlier row to lay down some fast times before the tests got two rutted. The AirGroup/Enduro Engineering Husqvarna rider was 21st in the first test, but came on strong in the final three tests, with times that put him sixth, fifth, and fifth. In the end, Devlin finished 40 seconds behind Russell and 30 seconds ahead of SRT Racing KTM’s Cory Buttrick, who was sixth overall.

Seventh went to Alligator National Enduro winner Grant Baylor on his KR4/Arrive-n-Ride Husqvarna. Grant struggled in test three after losing his rear brakes right after the start and then later crashed and went over the bars, which left him 17th for the test. He was third, fifth and fourth in the remaining three tests.

Tyler Vore, another Rekluse Expert-AA rider, slipped into the top 10 in eight overall on his AirGroup/Enduro Engineering Husqvarna. Vore was making his first ride for the team as a fill-in rider for the injured Andrew DeLong.

New Jersey’s Jesse Groemm was ninth on his Solid Performance KTM, while a third Rekluse Expert-AA rider, Chase Hayes, rounded out the top 10 on a KTM.

After three rounds, Steward Baylor leads the series standings with 80 points, followed by Thad DuVall with 67 and Kailub Russell with 58.

Australia’s Tayla Jones grabbed her third-straight win in Women’s Elite division, although the KR4 Husqvarna rider admitted that she struggled in the mud.

“I had a hard time with the deep ruts and I think I lost about 10 minutes in one of the tests,” Jones said. “It was a tough event but it was still a good day, but I think I need to practice riding in the mud, for sure.”  

Ashlee Applewhite finished second in the Women’s Elite division on a KTM, while Jessica Delee was third also on a KTM.

The 2017 Kenda AMA National Enduro Series presented by Moose Racing resumes action with round four of the series on June 4th in Greensboro, Georgia for the Cherokee National Enduro. For more information on the series check out www.nationalenduro.com.
