GRAND NATIONAL CROSS COUNTRY Factory FMF/KTM's Kailub Russell secured his 22nd career victory on Sunday at the Ironman GNCC finale, marking a total of nine wins this season alone. Since Russell clinched the National Championship two rounds early, the two-time champion set his sights on landing a KTM 150XC two-stroke in the centre of the podium at the final two rounds, a feat that most thought could not be done, especially after coming up a little short at the previous round. However, this time Russell put forth a convincing performance from start to finish, where he led four of the six laps en route to capturing the 2014 AMSOIL Ironman GNCC Overall. In the quad category it has been approximately two decades since the XC1 Pro ATV Championship has been decided at the final round of the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series, and perhaps even longer since its top contenders came into a finale with a tie in points.
