Enduro champs cross-training at the TTC

2006 AMA National enduro champion Russel Bobbitt (KTM) was at the TTC last week for a little cross-training. That's Cole Kirkpatrick, reigning Texas enduro champ and USA ISDE team member with him in the photo on the right. Click photos to enlarge.

Update 3/28: thanks to David Klein for the correct info on Cole. I've edited the text above and the blog title. More on both of them here.
