THE WEEKLY FEED: THE BEST OFF-ROAD RACER EVER?

BLAST FROM THE PAST: GUESS WHO?

None other than the eight-time GNCC champion Kailub Russell in his early days of racing.  He’s the only rider to ever win a GNCC title and a National Enduro title in the same year, he had an incredible 67 overall GNCC wins, was a two-time ISDE Gold Medalist and a two-time Full Gas Sprint Enduro title holder. He was tenacious, brilliant, driven and totally focused on winning at all cost!

PHOTO OF THE WEEK

We ran across this photo of Mike Webb, out with the DB boys during an off-road shootout six years ago. While he liked the HQV 450,  being a Suzuki rider for years he had kickstarted his machine ‘thousands’ of times so it was the magic button on the Husky that made him smile.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

This is from 1989 and I’m testing  Steve Lamson’s Noleen Yamaha YZ360. This machine made incredible power, lacking the bottom chug of the CR500 and KX500, but fit with a stellar mid-range that mated to a serious yank on top. Too, it was easy to ride, didn’t vibrate like the big 500s and was very nimble. The cylinder kit came from Ohlins and they only made 1000 of them. Doug Dubach raced a 360 in the 500 Nationals, as did Lamson for the final races in 1989. Noleen imported the kits into the states.

 

THE LEAD SHOT

Kyle Redmond actually jumping through a tree. Adam Booth and I were at Kyle’s place and we needed some shots of this KTM for the mag. Kyle said he could jump up and through the Y in a tree on his property. It was flat nuts. It’s basically a splat move from trials where you unload and accelerate off of a small kickoff point- in this a case a toaster sized rock four feet from the tree. Kyle did it one time and said that was eeeenuff!
