The second round of the 2016 KENDA Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series presented by Moose Racing took place at the home of the Alligator Enduro in Bunnell, FL, infamous for its seemingly bottomless black sand, the racers were faced with two challenging special tests during the two-day event.
Racing began on the 2-mile cross test with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna‰Ûªs Josh Strang jumping out to the test win ahead of fellow Australian, and round one winner, N-Fab AmPro Yamaha‰Ûªs Daniel Milner by just half a second. FMF KTM‰Ûªs Russell Bobbitt finished the test in 3rd, and Thad DuVall, who finished 2nd-overall at round one placed 4th in the test but dropped 8-seconds to Strang.
The second test of the day was on the 3.5-mile enduro test and it was Milner who posted a blazing 6:53.521 test time through the pines, palmettos, and tricky bog sections, over 6-seconds ahead of test one winner Strang. Milner‰Ûªs win in that test gave him the overall lead that he would hold for the remainder of the two days of racing.
Milner would go on to win the 3rd test of the day, the riders second lap on the cross test, by 5-seconds over Strang and increasing his lead to over 10-seconds. DuVall would rebound from a disastrous 2nd test that saw him drop 12-seconds to Milner with a 3rd-place finish in the cross test.
FMF KTM‰Ûªs Russell Bobbitt kept himself in the mix with a win in the 4th test of the day, the 2nd lap of the enduro test. Strang and Milner kept their consistent day going with 2nd and 3rd place finishes in the test, with RPM/KTM‰Ûªs Evan Smith put in his best ride of the day to finish 4th.
