For many in the mountain bike world, the name Russell Bobbitt might be new. However, for anyone who has a passion for throttles and roost, the factory KTM offroad racer is a household name. Russell has a slew of accomplishments, including 5 national enduro championships.
Now, why would a bicycle guy like myself be so stoked to meet with such a motorcycle legend? Well, it turns out Russell is quite the mountain biker! At the Windrock, TN, EWS qualifier a few weeks ago, Russell finished 4th. That’s pretty dang impressive for anyone, let alone a guy who isn’t known (yet!) for his mountain bike skills.
I had a great chat with Russel, and it turns out he has a long history riding mountain bikes, and totally loves to shred the pedals. He even told me he’s eyeing up a kinked rail to grind on his 20” BMX bike. Legit!
Check out Russell’s new project, and join him for a ride in an epic destination! https://www.gnarlyroutes.com/
