2009 ISDE, DAY 1 PORTUGAL
Born in Picton, NSW, Australia in 1981, Glenn Kearney started life on two wheels as a motocrosser, but soon found his calling to the rugged world of Enduro racing. He became one of the best in the country and was recognised for his extreme resilience in the International Six Days Enduro, keeping a wounded bike alive by topping up the engine with vegetable oil he'd sourced from a farmer. By 2004, Glenn won his first Australian Four Day Enduro Championship for the Ballard's Yamaha Team on a YZ250, before moving to America to take on the ruthless sport of GNCC.
After 7-years in the USA, Glenn is back in Australia racing for the Paul Feeney Group Husqvarna racing team. Glenn is heralded as one of the nicest guys in the sport and has picked up where he left off by running at podium pace in the first rounds of the 2011 Aus Off-road Championships.
