Can-Am GNCC Racing

Borich Keeps Charge Going As ATVs Head to Yadkin Valley Stomp GNCC

May 6, 2010 (Yadkinville, NC) -- Defending GNCC Champion Chris Borich is holding onto a three race-win streak heading into the Motorcycle-USA.com Yadkin Valley Stomp GNCC, round six of the 2010 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series.

Round six in 2009 is where Borich set off an eight-race win streak and if this pattern holds true, Borich could set a new record for himself, as he has only lost one race so far this year, the second round in Georgia, won by Taylor Kiser. But Borich maintains that the championship is all he's after, and it is Kiser himself who could be the one to ruin Borich's chances. Kiser has been Borich's number one contender this season, only stepping out of the second position once to Warnert Can-Am's Adam McGill, who has also been a consistent podium finisher this year. Yamaha-back Donnie Ockerman also saw a podium appearance at round 5, and will be gunning for more.

Not to be left out of the hunt for a win is Yamaha- mounted Jeffrey Pickens, FRE KTM's Bryan Cook, who has nearly pounced on the podium twice this season, Yamaha's Johnny Gallagher, Warnert Can-Am's Chris Bithell and GT Thunder/Yamaha's Brandon Sommers.

In the XC2 class, Brian Wolf still leads the pack despite at DNF at the prior round. Gabe Phillips and Walker Fowler are leaving their marks on the class, as both have now taken wins against Wolf. Still waiting for a win is FRE KTM's Josh Kirkland, this year's Defending Champion and Kevin Yoho, who currently sits second in points.

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.

The ATV pro classes compete in a two-hour national on Saturday starting at 1 p.m., and the bike pro classes compete in a three-hour national on Sunday starting at 1 p.m.
