Can-Am GNCC Racing

Borich and Kiser Lead XC1 Pack into Acerbis Loretta Lynn GNCC

Hurricane Mills, TN (April 22, 2010) - Defending GNCC Champion Chris Borich has met a tough match in Yamaha's Taylor Kiser as the 2010 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country series rolls into Hurricane Mills, Tennessee for round five of the series, The Acerbis Loretta Lynn GNCC, held at the famed singer's ranch.

While Borich has been able to take three wins to Kiser's one this season, Kiser has shown his most consistent results to date by challenging Borich each round to land in second. Kiser improved dramatically in the 2009 season, and it looks like he has made further leaps in his skill, making the battle between the two top XC1 riders a thrilling show each round. Now, the two also have to contend with Warnert Can-Am's Adam McGill, who recovered after problems in North Carolina to land on the podium in South Carolina at the last round. McGill switched teams and was able to stay with the top riders while working on his new ride. Once McGill gets the kinks worked out in his program, he will be gunning for his first win since 2008.

FRE KTM's Bryan Cook is another rider who has switched teams since last season while still keeping with consistent results. Cook has improved each round, and is now on the cusp of getting on the podium, with two fourth place finishes the past two rounds. Also in contention in Tennessee is Yamaha rider Jeffrey Pickens, Warnert Can-Am's Chris Bithell, Yamaha's Donnie Ockerman and Johnny Gallagher and National Guard/Yokley Racing/Polaris rider Jarrod McClure.

In the XC2 class, HMF's Brian Wolf is leading the charge while trading wins with XC2 rookie Walker Fowler. Kevin Yoho is also making his way to the top of the pack, and even though FRE KTM's rider has seen some disappointing rides, he's still hanging tough in the points while looking for his first win of the season. The XC2 class is shaping up to be highly competitive with the likes of Parker Jones, Gabe Phillips, Dustin Canipe and Blake Kramer making their way into the top 5 riders.

GNCC racing includes a full weekend of action, with the pro classes racing at 1 p.m. The 10 a.m. race includes 4x4 and Utility racers, and the factory-supported stars of the women's class. Youth riders race at 8 a.m., and the schedule repeats the next day with bike racing. Spectator passes run $15 for the full weekend, with pro pit access and pro autographs at no additional charge.

To get to the track, take I-40 to Exit 143, then to route 13 North to Loretta Lynn's ranch.
