Win a one-off Factory spec KTM 150XC race machine, fully prepped by the FMF KTM Factory Offroad Race team, plus some other great items as well.
Who wants to have a fully prepped Factory FMF KTM Race team machine in their garage as their own? That's right, all of us do! And now here is your chance to score such a bike, this very special KTM 150XC, thanks to FMF KTM Factory Offroad Race team rider, and 2013 GNCC Overall Champion, Kailub Russell.
To help offset his massive costs involved in attending this year's International Six Day Enduro in Argentina, plus to help fund more ongoing spinal injury rehabilation for his good friend Rory Mead, Kailub Russell has brought to life this great initiative. What makes this even better is the fact that Kailub plans to rip this bike at the final two GNCC races of 2014, hopefully scoring victory, before the bike is then fully refurbished and delivered to the raffle winner. The list of prizes are;
1st - Full Factory KTM 150XC (build cost $12,155)
2nd - One set of Thor Riding gear (pants, jersey, gloves, valued at $500)
3rd - Choice of a Free DirtWise "Ready to Race" bike rental at a GNCC or Nat Enduro race, or a Free spot in a two day DirtWise Riding school (valued at $400)
4th - Signed Kailub Russell custom #1 race jersey
5th - Signed Shane Watts custom jersey
The list of modifications to the KTM 150 include;
WP Factory Cone valve forks ($3,500), WP Factory Trax shock ($2,200), KTM Factory Services Factory spec motor ($2,500), Xtrig triple clamps ($650), KTM Factory built Oversize radiators ($500), IMS Quickfill fuel tank with Dry brake receiver ($500), Rekluse Core manual clutch ($500), Excel A60 wheels ($400), FMF Factory Fatty pipe and Powercore2 silencer ($375), PHDS bar mounts ($200), Xtrig Preload adjuster ($170), Acerbis plastics ($160), Galfer slotted rear brake rotor ($160), Dunlop tires ($160), Motomaster front floating brake rotor ($140), ZipTy rear brake rotor guard ($140), TMDesigns chain guide and sliders ($120), ARC folding levers ($120), Renthal 996 handlebars ($100), Renthal sprockets ($90), RK chain ($70), Motoseat seat cover ($60)
When asked for more details, Kailub had this to say, "I'm really pumped to be able to make this happen and give a lucky Offroad enthusiast out there the once in a lifetime opportunity to win a full factory KTM race machine, and hopefully I'll have scored an overall GNCC win on it as well. My plan is to ride the bike at the final two GNCC races of 2014, plus to have the initial necessary break-in ride and test session on the bike, therefore it will only have 6-7 hours on the clock. The bike not only looks rad, but it is an absolute weapon and is such a blast to roost around on - whoever wins this bike is in for a real treat!"
Meanwhile Offroad racing legend, and owner of the DirtWise Riding schools and "Ready to Race" bike rental program, Shane Watts is stoked to be involved with this groundbreaking fundraising effort, saying, "This whole raffle touches on all of the things we like to focus on here not only here with the DirtWise program, but also personally. It's great of Kailub, who purchase this raffle bike and factory suspension himself, to donate some of the money raised to his good mate, and our injured DirtWise team racer, Rory Mead - that really shows what kind of a genuine, thoughtful, and caring person he is. I'm a small bore rider so I can't wait to see him let this 150 fly around the GNCC race track and go for victory. I know that I wish I had a chance to twist the throttle on that bad boy. Also by having this raffle offset some of the huge costs Kailub will incur in attending this year's ISDE race in Argentina, he will have the best opportunity to focus on scoring a great result at this awesome event!
Rory Mead was blown away with the continued generosity he's receiving from the Offroad community following his devastating spinal injury at Rd. 3 of the GNCC series earlier in 2014. "I am so greatful for the support that I continue to receive - it just spurs me on every time I'm in doing rehab to push myself as far as possible to maximize my recovery. I'm slowly making improvements and progress, and I'm hopeful of being able to walk again one day, but it's still going to be a long and difficult journey to get there."

Purchase price of the tickets are $20 for one ticket, $50 for three tickets, $100 for 10 tickets, and are available either in person at the FMF KTM Factory team pit area at the last 4 GNCC races or online at www.shanewatts.com with the following link; http://shanewatts.com/store-3/#!/~/product/category=10551069&id=40072201
The drawing will be conducted on the finish podium at the last round of the 2014 GNCC series at Crawfordsville, Indiana on Sunday, Oct 26 2014.
This raffle is open to all people worldwide, with all five prizes being delivered immediately following the drawing date to the relevant winners.
