KTM Race Report - National Enduro Round 2
Greensboro, GA - FMF/KTM Factory riders Cory Buttrick and Russell Bobbitt finished 1st and 2nd respectively at the second round of the AMA National Enduro Series.
Both KTM riders rode a strong race finishing each special test within seconds of one another. Charles Mullins started the day out with the lead but mechanical problems kept him from finishing the race and allowed Buttrick and Bobbitt to pull ahead.
"I am from Georgia, so this is definitely one of the rounds where I felt most comfortable," commented Bobbitt. "I wasn’t as fast and aggressive as I needed to be to get the win today. I know what I need to work on and I plan to come back stronger for the third round."
Buttrick, who has been using the first two National Enduro rounds as a warm-up to the GNCC Series was thrilled to take home a win. "I am really excited to win this enduro. Earning a win here definitely helps my confidence as I head to Florida for the first GNCC round. I had fun these first two rounds and hope to return to the National Enduro Series in a few weeks."
Two rounds into the series Buttrick holds the points led with Bobbitt 9 points behind in third.
