Josh Strang Pushes Through Injury For Seveth At Masontown GNCC | Latest

Josh Strang secured a seventh place finish at the Masontown round of the 2016 Grand National Cross Country Championship.

The Husqvarna rider was carrying an ankle injury that hindered his performance, however a seventh place finish maintains the New South Welshman’s position as second in the championship standings.

FMF/KTM Factory Racing’s Kailub Russell continued his dominance at the eleventh round where he earned his eighth overall win of the season today. Russell extended his lead over Strang to 50 points.

“As easy as it may look sometimes, it’s never easy,” said Kailub Russell. “The track was pretty brutal with the dusty and hard-packed conditions, and it really takes a toll on your body and you just have to be patient. I got a terrible start and I was just impatient after that and continued to push through.”
