Ballance Puts 2008 Yamaha YFZ450 on Top of the Podium

CYPRESS, Calif. – Oct. 31, 2007 – Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A. congratulates Bill Ballance for winning a record eighth consecutive Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) XC1 Pro ATV championship this past weekend in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

Ballance rode to victory on his 2008 Yamaha YFZ450, taking first place in the final GNCC race on Saturday, October 27.  His top finish helped him maintain the over-all series point lead and capture the 2007 title.

“Yamaha reliability is a big reason for winning this championship,” Ballance said after the race.  “We either won or finished on the podium in every single race this year.”

“Yamaha couldn’t be more proud to be a part of Bill’s record setting eighth straight GNCC championship,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV/SxS marketing manager.  “Bill is a fierce competitor, a true champion and a role model for ATV racers everywhere.  The fact that the YFZ450 is the ATV he chose to help him on his record-setting run is a testament to the machine’s extreme level of performance and reliability.”
