The Mountain Ridge GNCC Pro ATV Race Report

Somerset, Pennsylvania, September 24, 2011 - National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 11th Overall and 9th in the XC1 Pro class today.  There were 131 total entries including 12 XC1 Pro racers.

Summary

The Mountain Ridge GNCC is a scenic, high elevation ATV park near the Flight 93 Memorial in Somerset, PA.  The course consists of wide open high speed sections, mudholes and rocks of all sizes throughout.  Rain earlier in the week made track conditions challenging, but near perfect.

Jarrod McClure had a great start and picked up the holeshot award.  The first several miles were open trails and fields allowing the machine to bounce off the rev-limiter in top gear.  Jarrod was 4th going into a long, extremely rough rock section at the7 mile marker.  Picking a good line and keeping your momentum was necessary in order to make it through safely.  Unfortunately, his machine bottomed out on a big rock, and knocked his chain off.  He jumped off and put it back on as quickly as possible.  By now, all the pro riders had passed him while he worked to get back in the race.

Jarrod finished lap 1 at the back of all the pros, and tried to move back toward the front.  His machine was ill handling, and he realized he had a rear tire going down.  His crew changed the wheel on lap 2.  The wheel was destroyed by going an entire lap on the rim.  Jarrod tried his best to make up time, and was able to pass up to 9th place in the XC1 Pro division.

This was not the finish he hoped for, but he put a strong ride in none the less.  The next race is in 2 weeks at the Powerline Park GNCC in St. Clairsville Ohio.
