WHIP-IT WEDNESDAY: MITCHELL OLDENBURG
The MXA wrecking crew typically goes out to Glen Helen every Thursday to test the latest and greatest bikes and parts. We aren’t the only ones testing, as teams frequent the track to modify bike setups. This last month Troy Lee Designs KTM has been among the teams that are regularly at the Southern California track. With riders Justin Hill, Jessy Nelson and Alex Frye on the couch, Mitch Oldenburg has been filling in and working his way up in the points. Unfortunately, another teammate, Shane McElrath, just got injured at Southwick. That leaves Oldenburg as the lone wolf in the TLD pit. Here he is whipping over the hip jump at the back of the track. You can see our interview with him last week here.
