Ramirez Finishes 2nd at Jericho Hare & Hound

Jericho, UT – FMF KTM Factory rider Ivan Ramirez finished 2nd overall at the fifth round of the AMA National Hare & Hound Series. Fellow FMF KTM Factory support rider Gary Sutherlin finished 3rd overall.

The course consisted of two 50 miles loops that were more tight and technical than most Hare & Hound events. The tighter nature of the course caused the laps to last longer than normal. Ramirez got a great jump off the start of the bomb as his bike hooked up well in the sand section off the start. He grabbed the holeshot and led the first 30 miles of the race before he made a wrong move on the course and got lost. He had to turn around and go back which caused him to drop to 3rd place.

Meanwhile, Sutherlin also had a decent start and w...

An Undefeated Russell Scores 27th Career Victory at the Limestone 100 GNCC

Springville, Ind. – FMF KTM Factory rider Kailub Russell extended his win streak in the 2015 GNCC Series to five-in-a-row on Sunday after capturing another win at the Limestone 100 GNCC in Springville, Indiana.

Rainfall the day before the race made for challenging track conditions, where the course was shortened to only eight miles, with lap times much shorter than usual. Russell got a great jump off the line where he entered the first turn in second place. However, Russell quickly lost his advantage in a collision with another rider’s wheel, causing Russell to go down in the second turn and ultimately take off in a dead last position.

Russell worked his way up to fourth after lap one, where he con...
