Mud, Snow and Rain hammer GNCC round two
BRP Can-Am ATVs Power through the Morning Session
Valcourt, Quebec, March 10, 2008 - As snow buried Ohio, tornadoes hit Florida and freezing rain coated the Northeast, the General GNCC near Washington, Ga., faced its share of weather issues. Rain, cold and snow were the story for Saturday's races and the Can-Am riders had their work cut out for them.
"In GNCC racing, you are always going to face these kinds of races," said Del Bohlman, Product, Media Relation and Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs. "Preparing for the race course conditions of these muddy and miserable races are a test for the crew and racers. But this is why we race Can-Am ATVs; they are capable of amazing feats."
At the end of the gruelling race, Can-Am X-Team member Bryan Buckhannon aboard a Can‑Am™ Outlander™ 800 ATV was the first of the 4x4 Open riders to cross the finish line and was on the morning podium with third overall out of nearly 250 riders. He wasn't the only Can‑Am rider to win his class, Team Warnert Racing/Can-Am's Cliff Beasley took the win on his Outlander 500 in the 4x4 Lites class. He was closely followed by Team Looney Tuned Exhaust/Can-Am's Jerime Dudding on his Outlander 500 ATV. BRP Can-Am also had success in the 4x4 Limited class as X-Team racer Jamie Bougher was the first to finish in the class.
All the racers are hoping the Steele Creek GNCC, held near Morganton, N.C., on March 29, will have much better weather and track conditions. Visit www.can-amxteam.com for more details and race results.
