Faces Of The Grassman National Enduro

A behind-the-scenes look at the Grassman Enduro

The Grassman National Enduro took place this past weekend in Chandlersville, Ohio, where Thad Duvall claimed his first win of the season. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider won four of the six tests and finished second in the remaining two. In the end, Duvall beat out series point leader Steward Baylor by a minute and a half for the win. Baylor finished second on a Tely Energy KTM, while FMF KTM’s Josh Toth was third. Here’s a look at a few of the faces of the Grassman Enduro.
