Valcourt, Québec, June 18, 2009 – Team Warnert Racing / Can-Am rider Chris Bithell rode his DS 450™ to the overall podium at the John Penton GNCC near Millfield, OH, while his motocross teammate, John Natalie, also rode a DS 450 to the Pro-class podium at the Unadilla AMA ATV Motocross National the following weekend.

"Both Chris and John have been working extremely hard all season for these podiums and I'm extremely proud of them and the entire Warnert team. The Can-Am momentum is continuing to build and I'm confident that we'll be returning to the podium many more times this season," says Jimmie O'Dell, Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. "Can-Am racers are seeing excellent results – from the pro ranks to the amateurs – at major ATV races across North America."

Also at the GNCC race, Bithell's teammate, Michael Swift, took the 4x4 Limited win on his Outlander™ 800R EFI and second overall in the morning session, continuing his undefeated winning streak. In fact, if Swift wins at the Snowshoe GNCC in two weeks, he will wrap up the GNCC 4x4 Limited championship with four rounds still to go. At the Unadilla ATV MX national, Can-Am had three racers in the top 10 of the Pro class. Up and coming amateur rider Cole Henry rode hard aboard his Motoworks backed DS 450 to win the 450 A class at the Unadilla MX national.

Rounding out GNCC news: Can-Am X-Team racer Scott Kilby won the 4x4 Open class aboard his Outlander 800R EFI in the morning session. Team Warnert Racing / Can-Am rider Cliff Beasley took the 4x4 Lites win on his Outlander 500 EFI as he grabbed the holeshot and checked out on the rest of the field. In the Women's class, X-Team racer Lexie Coulter took second on her DS 450 by riding consistently up front and making her move late in the race. X-Team riders Sam Williams and Jeremie Dudding went one-two respectively in the U2 class aboard their Can-Am Renegade 800R ATVs.
