Shock Doctor/KTM Factory National Enduro rider Russell Bobbitt won the ISDE qualifier in Missouri over the weekend after a two-day mud storm that left the course a sloppy mess.
"It rained both days we were there," commented Bobbitt on the race. "The track was really rutted and slick. There was water running through the ruts the entire time. The hardest part was trying to keep my goggles clean!" Despite the conditions, Bobbitt prevailed taking 3rd the first day and 1st the second to earn a combined score that awarded him the overall.
