Hot off a win at the opening round of the Extreme Dirt Track Series, Tim Farr switched venues to compete aboard his new KTM Sport ATV in round 8 of the Grand National Cross Country Series in Snowshoe, WV.

The Snowshoe event took place at a West Virginia ski resort that is new to the GNCC circuit. Many riders compared this track to the legendary Blackwater race as the course included steep hills, huge rocks, mud holes, dust, and tight woods. The experienced Pro riders said this was the toughest course in which they have ever competed.

The race began with a LeMans style start in which Farr, unfortunately, picked row sixteen, the last starting row for the Pro and Pro-Am riders. Farr had his work cut out for him as he began to pick off the 60 riders that started ahead of him. After the first lap, Farr had worked himself up into the top 25 riders. The course continued to get more challenging each lap and bottlenecks occurred at many areas on the track. Farr came off the quad on the second lap after hitting a rock in a dusty section of the track. It took several minutes for him to get going and he was once again forced to work his way forward. After the fourth lap and the checkered flag, Farr had worked his way up to a 7th place finish in the Pro-Am class and 24th overall.

“The stock KTM worked flawlessly”, said Farr following the race. “This was a tough track and I learned a lot. I hope to be back later this season in an attempt to better my finish.”

The race will be televised on Versus August 11 at 3:00 PM, August 15 at 3:30 PM, and August 16 at 4:00 PM.
