FACTORY HUSQVARNA'S RUSSELL BOBBITT READIES FOR RETURN

FOUR-TIME NATIONAL ENDURO CHAMPION PLANS TO CONTEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA NATIONAL ENDURO THIS WEEKEND

 

After sitting out most of the season with an injured knee, Factory Husqvarna's Russell Bobbitt is ready to return to racing this weekend at the Little Brown Jug National Enduro in Union, South Carolina. The four-time National Enduro champion is eager to make his return to competition after six months on the sidelines, and will be racing the final two rounds of the season.

"I feel like it's been forever," Bobbitt said. "It's the longest time in my pro career that I've gone without racing. I'm excited to get back to the races; it will be nice to see everyone again."

A crash at the opening round of the National Enduro Series left Bobbitt with a broken kneecap and a torn quad tendon. It's been a sizeable road to recovery for the Factory Husqvarna racer, but he's feeling strong after a few weeks back on the bike.

"I'm excited to race the 350 and actually finish my first debut race on a four-stroke," Bobbitt said. "At the same time, we don't have huge expectations. I'm just getting back into racing. I have a ways to go in getting back to 100%, but I feel strong and my speed is decent. It should go pretty well."

Look for Russell Bobbitt this weekend at the Little Brown Jug National Enduro in Union, South Carolina where he will be racing his Factory Husqvarna FC 350 along his teammate, Andrew DeLong, who currently leads the championship.
