FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Johnny Girroir has once again showcased his dominance in Round 3 of the 2024 U.S. Sprint Enduro Series, securing a convincing victory in both the Pro 1 Class and the overall standings. Joining him on the podium were FMF KTM Factory Racing Team Landers teammates Gus Riordan and Brandy Richards, ensuring a triumphant outing for the team.

Girroir, the defending champion, has been in exceptional form this season aboard his KTM 350 XC-F. Commanding the Warrior Sprint in Semora, North Carolina, across consecutive days, he clinched his third consecutive win in the series, solidifying his lead in both the Pro 1 and overall championship standings.

Reflecting on his performance, Girroir remarked, “Yesterday I made some mistakes and just wasn’t flowing, but I went to bed last night a little frustrated and told myself I have to hit my marks today. I had one close call in the early tests, but other than that, it was a mistake-free day, I put some solid tests in and I’m happy. It feels good to be three-from-three and we want to keep this momentum going.”

Teammate Riordan, last year’s Pro 2 title holder, also demonstrated his prowess, clinching victory in the Pro 2 Class astride his KTM 250 XC-F. Similarly, Richards secured the top spot in the Pro Women’s Class, further bolstering FMF KTM Factory Racing Team Landers’ dominance in the series.

Riordan shared his thoughts on the weekend, stating, “It was good, I was able to win the round in Pro 2, and it was a positive weekend overall. I started out a bit slow, but other than that I was happy with how things went, the conditions were nice and dry, so I’m satisfied with Round 3.”

Richards expressed her satisfaction with her performance, particularly highlighting the challenging terrain, “This weekend was definitely a good time. The Cross Test was tricky with it being super-slick, and the Enduro Test was really rough with all the tree roots as well. It was the first time that I’ve actually felt comfortable in the Enduro Tests, so it was a great weekend for me.”
