GBC Motorsports Racers Return to their Winning Ways at Unadilla
- Forrest Wharton, Garon Davis and Nathan Hornacheck won their classes in Round 10 of the GNCC.
- XC1 Pros Bryan Cook, Kevin Yoho and Jeff Pickens finished 7-8-9 at Unadilla.
- Jeff Pickens and Pro Womens rider Kristen Atwell both grabbed holeshots on their X-Rex and GBII XC tires.
Anaheim, Calif. – September 16, 2011 – GBC Motorsports enjoyed more top 10 finishes in the XC1 Pro class at the 10th round of this year’s GNCC at Unadilla in New Berlin, New York last weekend. Several more GBC riders won their class races and look to finish the 2011 GNCC season strong, with just four rounds left to race.
Always a popular stop on the GNCC tour, the famed Unadilla Valley Sports Complex served as the return from a nine week summer break. Many anticipated that the aftermath of hurricane Irene would turn the event into a muddy mess. Despite numerous road closures and widespread flooding throughout the surrounding areas, racers and fans were treated to near-perfect race conditions.
There are two major factors when competing for the holeshot at the national level: quick reactions and superior traction. GBC riders Kristen Atwell and Jeff Pickens seem to have mastered the quick reaction, and used the grip of their GBC X-Rex and GBII XC tires to wheelie away with the lead in the Womens Class and XC1 Class, respectively.
When asked about the key to getting holeshots in this 2011 season Jeff Pickens replied, “It’s all about the GBC tires and Rekluse clutch. They do all the work – all I do is hold on.”
