ITP AND WARNERT
CAN-AM OUT FRONT IN 2010 GNCC SEASON
ITP and the Warnert Can-Am Racing team proved
to be a potent combination throughout the 2010
Grand National Cross Country Championship
Series. Race wins, podium appearances and
ultimately numerous overall class titles made
headlines all season. No team had a greater
impact this year, and its success came while
using a wide variety of ITP tires. ITP’s
Holeshot, QuadCross XC, TerraCross R/T and Mud
Lite models all made their way to winner’s
circle on a regular basis.
Most notable were the results of Warnert’s
utility class riders. Cliff Beasley, Michael
Swift and Bryan Buckhannon all tallied perfect
160-point scores (amateur classes count the best
eight finishes during the 13-event schedule).
Beasley left no doubt by winning every single
event to claim the U2 class championship
(201-840cc modified ATVs with no racks).
Buckhannon took the 4x4 Open class, while
Michael Swift grabbed the 4x4 Limited division.
Chris Bithell and Adam McGill were both
consistent front-runners in the XC1 Pro class in
2010. Bithell enjoyed an overall victory at
round six and finished the season with three
straight top-three podium visits. Just edging
Bithell for third place in the final point
standings McGill, who showed up on the podium
eight times in 13 races.
Rounding out this Minnesota-based team’s
season was Lexie Coulter, who finished fourth
overall in the highly competitive Women’s class
standings. Coulter won the opening round and
then stood on the podium seven more times during
the series. Less than ten points separated the
top four riders in this division.
Congratulations to the riders, technicians
and management who made it all possible. ITP is
