Morgantown, W. Va.- FMF/KTM's Kailub Russell posted his first career overall win at the ITP Powerline Park GNCC, round 12 of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, but not without a fight from the rest of the talented field of pro racers. Powerline Park in St. Clairsville, Ohio is home to some of the most grueling obstacles on the 13-round circuit, specifically the "Powerline Mudhole" that served as the deciding factor of an intense battle between AmPro Yamaha's Thad DuVall, New Zealand bad boy Paul Whibley and Australian superstar Josh Strang. Relive all the action and find out who made the podium this Sunday on VERSUS, airing at 5:30 p.m. EST.
