Kailub Russell injured

GNCC legend Kailub Russell has been injured while preparing for the 2021 US Nationals on his 250 Red Bull KTM, putting his participation in doubt for the opening rounds of the series that is due to commence on the 29th of May.

Russell gave an update on social media explaining his injuries saying: “Spent yesterday morning riding Pala, we had just found a good setting I was comfortable with and working into trying to pick up the pace. I lost the front end just before this big roller and my clutch hand came off the bike and I whiskey throttled clear into the fence. I was unconscious until the ambulance arrived, was diagnosed with 3 broken ribs and a broken jaw. (Which is wired shut now.)

“I’m not sure where this leaves me to be ready to race this summer. Definitely going to be tough to make it to the first couple of rounds. But damnit, this will only make it that much sweeter.”
