National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing – The Mountain Ridge GNCC Pro ATV Race Report
Somerset, Pennsylvania, September 24, 2011 – National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 11th Overall and 9th in the XC1 Pro class today. There were 131 total entries including 12 XC1 Pro racers.
The Mountain Ridge GNCC is a scenic, high elevation ATV park near the Flight 93 Memorial in Somerset, PA. The course consists of wide open high speed sections, mudholes and rocks of all sizes throughout. Rain earlier in the week made track conditions challenging, but near perfect.
Jarrod McClure had a great start and picked up the holeshot award. The first several miles were open trails and fields allowing the machine to bounce off the rev-limiter in top gear. Jarrod was 4th going into a long, extremely rough rock section at the 7 mile marker. Picking a good line and keeping your momentum was necessary in order to make it through safely. Unfortunately, his machine bottomed out on a big rock, and knocked his chain off. He jumped off and put it back on as quickly as possible. By now, all the pro riders had passed him while he worked to get back in the race.
