Maxxis Takes 9 of Top 10 at GNCC Round 1
For the presidential elections, the verdict
is unclear. In the GNCC ATV series, however, the
results are in: It’s Maxxis in a landslide. With
Chris Borich nailing the victory in the opening
round and eight other Maxxis riders hot on his
heels, Maxxis took nine of the overall top ten
spots at the GNCC Triton. The race was held
March 2 in Morgantown, West Virginia.
“I got a mid-pack start, not the greatest,
but the Yoshimura motor just pulled through. I
caught up to these guys. I knew Bill (Ballance)
was out front, so I pushed to get up there and
get the lead. Then I just tried to check out,”
Borich told gnccracing.com. The 25-year old
Borich is gunning for the GNCC championship
after a second place overall finish in 2007.
Bryan Cook took second place with a steady
performance - despite a few challenges. “I
didn’t know how my conditioning would be. I was
done. My hands were bad. I just had to dig deep.
My hands were so torn up I could barely hold on
to the bars,” Cook told gnccracing.com. Ballance
took the holeshot, maintaining Maxxis’ record
with the 27th straight ITP Holeshot Award for a
Maxxis rider. The eight-time champ took the
third spot on the podium.
Taylor Kiser took fourth place and Adam
McGill nabbed fifth, while Brandon Sommers took
sixth. In eighth through tenth places were, in
order, Donald Ockerman, Mathew Smiley and Jarrod
