8-TIME GNCC CHAMPION KAILUB RUSSELL EXPLAINS HIS MOVE TO PRO MOTOCROSS
Eight-time GNCC Champion Kailub Russell announced his retirement from GNCC off-road racing in 2020, but he hasn’t stopped racing yet. After trying for many years, Kailub is now chasing his dream of racing the Pro Motocross series and he’s doing it with a factory Red Bull KTM 250 ride. Unfortunately, right before it was announced that he would race the 2021 Pro Motocross series, Kailub had a big wreck while testing with KTM at Fox Raceway, breaking his jaw and multiple ribs. He missed the first two rounds, but was able to join the series at High Point where he scored 15-21 moto finishes in the 250 class. MXA’s Josh Mosiman caught up with Kailub after the race to get his thoughts on the race, learn more about his mindset for the 12-race season, hear about his future plans and more.
