Alexandr Ivanutin clinched his fourth Russian National XC title with victory at the fourth and final round of the series.
The fourth and final round of 2017 Russian XSR-MOTO.RU Cross Country Cup was held at Orlenok at the Black Sea Coast.
Mixing up the format for 2017, this year’s race moved from the beach to the mountains and forest.
Using the MXGP circuit as a base, the lap started and finished there, while mixing in other forestry sections.
Now a tradition for 2017, the addition of rain ensured a testing race.
Aleksandr Ivanyutin has been the rider to beat in 2017 and ensuring a clean sweep of the championship rode to victory at round four.
Getting out to a perfect start, he never gave any chance to his competitors.
David Leonov – national EnduroX talent — was second.
Third place was surprisingly taken by Aleksander’s elder brother Sergey Ivanyutin, who actually switched from this quad to enduro bike for the weekend.
