 Mullins Maintains Point Lead after Rattlesnake National Enduro

Cross Fork, PA – Factory FMF/KTM rider Charlie Mullins maintains the championship points lead after the eighth round of the Rekluse AMA National Enduro Series.

The factory rider struggled on the slick course early on. In the middle of the day he began to gain some speed and was consistently finishing inside the top five times.

 

“I suffered a few crashes throughout the tests today which set me back,” stated Mullins. “I really had a tough time in the fifth test but the sixth test was smooth and a perfect amount of rocks – not too many. I was able to make up some ground in that test, which helped bump up my overall finish.”  

 

Mullins turned the second fastest time in the final test to move him up three overall positions. He finished the race in 4th place, earning 18 points toward the championship. With two rounds remaining, Mullins still holds a sizeable 29 point advantage over the rest of his competitors.

 

The riders will now take a few weeks break before returning for the ninth round of the series which will be held in Lynnville, IN on September 15, 2013.
