Off Road

Kearney Podiums The Stomp, Runs Up Front At Muddy Missouri Enduro

Posted:

Team Husqvarna's off-road hotshoe Glenn Kearney continues to step up his game, finishing in third place at the Yadkin Valley Stomp in Yadkinville, North Carolina on May 9. That fine performance was followed up by Kearney challenging the leaders at the Leadbelt National Enduro held near Park Hills, Missouri this past weekend.

Despite the extremely wet and muddy conditions in Missouri, not to mention some other challenges, Kearney finished just off the podium in fourth place by a few seconds.

"It would have been nice to finish on the box two weekends in a row," admits the affable Australian woods specialist. "But we had some off-track drama to contend with between the races."

Seems that Kearney's brother/mechanic Ben broke his leg just before the Stomp and was left without a leg to stand on, so to speak.

"Ben got the bike ready for the Enduro in Missouri, but I learned a little bit about putting a top end on a 4-stroke, timing valves and that sort of stuff." After having to ride with a badly broken ankle for a couple of rounds last year, Glenn can certainly feel his brother's pain!

Broken-legged Ben's stand-in crew chief for the Leadbelt National Enduro round was Glenn's girlfriend Krystal, who was cutting Kearney no slack! After dicing with the leaders on the wet, whooped and messy 65-mile loop, Glenn kicked it up a gear and got by Husaberg's Mike Lafferty on the final special test and tried to close the gap on another Husaberg rider, Nick Fahringer for third. His spirited charge came up just short as Kearney finished in fourth by just three seconds.
