Kailub-Russell-GNCC-Win-9-23-13Foxburg, PA – Factory FMF/KTM rider Kailub Russell took his fifth consecutive win of the season in the GNCC XC1 class and strengthened his points lead in the series while his teammate Maria Forsberg won her seventh race of the year in the GNCC Women’s class at the eleventh round of the GNCC Series, dubbed “The Gusher.”

Track conditions were muddy from the three inches of rain received the night before the event and Forsberg got the worst of it as she lined up for the morning race. She jumped off to a decent start and quickly worked her way up front and into the lead. She led every lap of the morning race, continuously putting time on the rest of the riders. When the checkered flag flew she easily coasted to a victory by a margin of 9 minutes and 10 seconds over the next closest female competitor. Her time was also decent enough to give her the overall for the day out of all morning classes.
