MULLINS WINS CROSS TIMBER NATIONAL ENDURO
Oklahoma City, OK – Factory FMF/KTM rider Charlie Mullins earned his eighth win of the Rekluse AMA National Enduro Series winning four of the six special tests on his way to the finish.
Mullins started the day out well taking the win in the first special test. He continued to dominate for the next three tests winning each one by a large margin. Heading into the fifth test he had a nearly two minute lead on the rest of the field. Unfortunately, he swapped out down a steep rocky hill in the fifth test which caused him to fall off the pace a bit. “I didn’t crash but it definitely scared me a little so I took it easy at the end of that test,” stated Mullins.
Mullins was able to regroup for the final test which was the longest and most technical test of the day. He started off well in the section but lost his rear brakes part way through which cost him about a minute total time. Despite the time lost, Mullins still managed to win the enduro by a large margin to claim his 8th win of the season.
Now Mullins, who already secured the championship a round earlier, will focus on the final round of the GNCC Series where he is in a tight battle with his teammate Kailub Russell for the championship. “I had a great season in the National Enduro Series and I can’t thank my team enough for all their support. Now I hope to earn another championship for them next weekend at the Ironman GNCC,” stated Mullins.
