Taylor Kiser - XC1 Pro #6
GNCC Round #4 – Pirelli Big Buck

Pirelli Big Buck – Union, SC - Big Buck has always been a good track for my riding style so I was looking forward to a great weekend of racing. As the green flag went up I got a great jump out of the hole and headed to the first corner. As we hit the holeshot line I was second behind Bill Ballance; this is where I rode comfortably for the first lap. I gained the lead early in lap number 2; I felt comfortable and everything was flowing well.

I continued to lead the race until I pitted on the third lap; Chris Borich and Adam McGill decided not to pit at this time so after gas and goggles I hit the course in fourth behind Ballance. I was moving along great when I connected with a tree, it was a pretty hard hit. I was shook me up pretty good but tried to quickly gather my thoughts. Getting the quad out of the predicament took me what seemed like forever. By the time I got back on the course I was in fifth place behind Bryan Cook.

I put my head down and began to charge forward for last lap of the race. In the end, I placed fifth for the weekend. This places me in third in the XC1 point’s standing’s just three points behind second. I look forward to heading to Loretta’s for round five of the GNCC series; in preparation I will be heading to Tennessee early for an OMA event and some additional training.
