FMF / KTM ’ s Josh Toth claimed his third win of the season in dominating fashion , topping the Muddobbers National Enduro by a margin of nearly three-and-a-half minutes .
Toth , who won two of the three previous rounds and was leading the third when he drowned out his bike in a creek , won all six tests and never once looked in danger of losing the lead .
“ The day was perfect , really ,” said Toth . “ I had some mistakes throughout the day but overall , I just rode really smart , and really on point . I just feel really good on the bike lately and I think it ’ s really showing .”
Joining Toth on the podium was his FMF / KTM teammate Ben Kelley , who edged out series point leader Steward Baylor ( AmPro Yamaha ) by 1.6 seconds to claim the runner-up slot .
“ Those last three tests , me , Stew , Trevor ( Bollinger ) and Craig ( DeLong ) were honestly super close ; I think Stew and I tied in the last three tests ,” said Kelley . “ I had solid times in three , four , and five , and then rode really good in six , even though I had two crashes .”
