Suzuki's Chris Borich
Takes Ironman GNCC Finale
First overall at Ironman!
!Brea, Calif. - October 27, 2008 - Team
Rockstar / Yoshimura / Suzuki's Chris Borich
took his third win of the season in the final
round of the 2008 Can-Am Grand National Cross
Country Series in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
Borich at the checkers!
Borich started strong in the muddy conditions
of the Klotz Ironman event and pushed himself to
the top three early on. As the leaders settled
into race pace, Borich made his move into the
lead in the third lap and would maintain the
front position to the checkers. Despite the best
efforts of his competitors, Borich and the
Suzuki QuadRacer R450 would not be denied
victory in the final round.
Borich was excited with the result: "My
Suzuki QuadRacer R450 works great in all
conditions but it really hooks up in the mud. We
got out front early and just went wide open and
came out on top."
With the victory, Borich claimed second place
in the 13-round 2008 Can-Am Grand National Cross
Country Series with 241 points.
