BRP Sweeps Podium at Mountain Ridge GNCC
Can-Am Outlander ATVs give riders top-three spots in morning race

Valcourt, Québec, September 6, 2007 – Hard work and extra hours training during the summer paid off for the members of Team Warnert/Can-AmTM racing. Michael Swift, Cliffton Beasley and Scott Kilby rode their Can-Am OutlanderTM ATVs to a sweep of the morning-race podium at the GEICO Mountain Ridge GNCC near Somerset, Pa.

“At the outset of the season, we knew we would be successful on the Can-Am GNCC circuit,” said Bernard Guy, Can-Am ATV marketing director, BRP. “We swept the last GNCC at Snowshoe W.V., and that was beyond our expectations. To sweep two overall podiums in a row, however, proves that the power of the Outlander line of ATVs is tough to beat.”

Swift rode his Outlander 800 to the morning overall and continued his dominance of the 4x4 Limited class. With four more rounds to go, Swift has a 28-point lead on second place. Beasley and Kilby actually tied for second overall at Mountain Ridge with identical race times down to a hundredth of a second.

Beasley took top honours in the 4x4 Lites class aboard his Outlander 500 ATV and leads the class by four points on fellow Can-Am rider Jeremie Dudding, who took third in the class also aboard an Outlander 500. Kilby beat all the other competitors in the 4x4 Open class, including his team mate Rick Cecco who took second; both rode Outlander 800 ATVs. Cecco is second in the class championship, a mere two points behind the leader.

Riders of Can-Am Outlander ATVs now lead all 4x4 classes, and occupy seven of the top nine spots in the 4x4 Open, 4x4 Limited and 4x4 Lites championship standings. The next race in the GNCC series is the Can-Am-sponsored Unadilla GNCC near New Berlin, N.Y., on September 15.
