GNARLY ROUTES RACING RD.2 OF THE NATIONAL ENDURO SERIES

NEPG RD. 2 - ORMOND BEACH, FLORIDA - 3.24.19 BIKE: KTM 300 XC

RIDER: RUSSELL BOBBITT RESULT: 2ND OVERALL

Ormond Beach, Florida - The second round of the National Enduro Series took place in Ormond Beach,

Florida and Russell Bobbitt battled the infamous palmetto roots and sand on his way to a second

overall finish at the Alligator National Enduro. Bobbitt started the race off a bit slow but

picked the pace up and tied for the stage win in test 5.

Bobbitt: “The Alligator Enduro has always been a tough race for me. I struggle when it is tough to

read the trail and here in Florida all the palmetto leaves block so much of your vision you have to

gamble with which way the course is going to turn. This year Conditions were great with no dust and

limited mud holes and the track was physical but fun too. No crashes all day and my KTM 300XC

performed flawlessly.”

Bobbitt will now have a weekend off prior to the first Gnarly Routes tour where he and Cole

Kirkpatrick will take a group of three riders on a private tour of the U Lazy S Ranch in Post,

Texas.
