Former National Enduro Champion Russell Bobbitt took top honors at the OMA Nationals FMF Troll XC in Council Bluffs, Iowa, September 29. It was his sixth win of the 2013 series and with it came his first OMA Championship.

Bobbitt, on the Husaberg Cycle Nano machine, had control of the lead by the end of the first lap and from there he never looked back.

Despite dealing with severe arm pump, Kole Henslee settled for second place on his Springfield KTM/Husaberg/Yamaha KTM 300 XC.

Third overall went to Dono’s Motorsports Husqvarna’s Tucker Smith, who came away with the Pro 2-class victory. But it was close. Smith finished just one second ahead of Stuk KTM’s Spencer Burke.

Steve Leivan rounded out the top five while winning the A class on his Freedom Cycles KTM two-stroke.
