FMF/KTM Off-Road Team Prep for GNCC

GNCC Video

The 2011 Can-AM GNCC series begins March 8 in River Ranch, Fla., and many teams are busy testing, including the FMF/KTM Team.

This YouTube video shows the FMF/KTM team in Elko, Ga., as they prep for the first GNCC race. In this video, the team’s top riders talk about the upcoming season, with commentary from Kailub Russell, Russell Bobbitt, Charlie Mullins and Cory Buttrick.

In November, FMF announced its renewed sponsorship of the KTM Factory Off-Road Racing Team for the next three years.

FMF has been a sponsor of the KTM Team for many years and moved up as the title sponsor for the 2010 season. Together the FMF backed KTM Factory Off-Road Team won two championships in 2010. For 2011, the FMF/KTM Team will be comprised of six racers.

2010 WORCS Champion and 7-time ISDE Top American Kurt Caselli and the 2009 WORCS Champion Mike Brown will make up the WORCS Team. Two-time XC2 GNCC Champion Kailub Russell and the recent JNCC final winner Cory Buttrick will compete on the GNCC Team.

They will be joined by newcomer Charlie Mullins who in addition to the GNCC Series will defend his current National Enduro title against his teammate and the sixth member of the FMF/KTM Factory Off-Road Racing Team, 3-time National Enduro Champion Russell Bobbitt.
