McGill Makes it Two in a Row

Morganton, NC –
Factory FRE/KTM rider Adam McGill earned his
second win in a row at the third round of the
ATV GNCC Series.
After a dominating win at the Georgia round
McGill repeated the result this weekend to prove
it wasn’t a fluke and he is indeed a title
contender for this season’s championship.
Just like he did at round 2, McGill pulled an
amazing holeshot and got out front fast. By the
end of the first lap he had already put 20
seconds on the second place rider, Bill Balance.
McGill’s teammate, Taylor Kiser started a bit
farther back around 10th place and had moved
into 7th by the end of lap one.
After the first lap Kiser had caught up with
Brandon Sommers and Chris Borich and the three
riders battled throughout the remainder of the
two hour race. “I caught up to the front pack
rather quickly but every time I tried to pass I
would get stuck behind lappers in a bottleneck
and lose time. It was a one-lined course and
since I didn’t have the start I needed I
struggled to break through,” commented Kiser.
Meanwhile, McGill was still pulling out front
stretching his lead to over a minute. McGill
would go on to win after leading the race start
to finish in a near flawless ride out front.
Kiser finished 7th for the day earning enough
points to keep him in the title chase. After
three rounds McGill and Kiser now sit one and
two in the series points.
“I am so happy to be on top of the podium for
the second week straight,” replied McGill after
the race. “This is where I’ve known I could be
for a long time, but I couldn’t have made it
happen if it wasn’t for the help of my team and
a great bike. My KTM is running perfect and
almost makes my job seem easy.”
