Mullins Salvages Points for Championship at Concho National Enduro

Blackwell, TX – Factory FMF/KTM rider Charlie Mullins was able to salvage valuable points toward the AMA National Enduro Championship after bouncing back from a mechanical issue at the third round of the series.

Mullins started the day off well finishing with the second fastest time at the first special test. He went on to earn the fastest time in the second test section which put him in the lead going into the third test. Unfortunately, he suffered a bike issue on the transfer section between tests two and three. His Factory FMF/KTM Team worked quickly to get him back in action, but unfortunately, he showed up at the third test 4 minutes late. He was docked the four minutes plus the time lost in his section to put him 34th overall after the end of the third test.

 

In a remarkable effort, Mullins turned impressive times throughout the final three test sections to gain back time lost. At the end of the day he was able to finish eleventh overall to earn 9 points toward the championship standings. He continues to hold the points lead as the riders head for the fourth round of the series in mid-April.

 

“I was definitely bummed that we had the mechanical issue today,” stated Mullins. “Once we had it worked out, I knew I needed to ride as hard as I could to gain each position within reach. I am happy I was able to get back into point earning positions to earn enough points to maintain my lead heading to the next round.”

 

KTM support rider, Grant Baylor, had a great day. The young fifteen year-old was able to ride close to the top five throughout the day to finish 5th overall. Fellow KTM rider Ian Blythe, also had a great day finishing 4th overall to earn the top KTM finish for the weekend.

 

Next Event: April 14, 2013 – Forest Hill, LA

 

Overall Results –

  1. Andrew Delong
  2. Russell Bobbitt 
  3. Nick Fahringer 
  4. Ian Blythe – KTM
