Anaheim, Calif. - November 10, 2011 - Each
April, famed country music singer Loretta Lynn
opens up the pristine horseback trails of her
Hurricane Mills, Tennessee ranch to ATVs for the
oldest stop on the GNCC racing tour.
Known for its mountainous and rocky terrain,
this facility is one of the year’s most
torturous tests of both rider and machine.
Originally slated for April 30-May 1, torrential
rains forced a postponement of the event until
this past weekend. With a facility as unique as
this not even biblical flooding could wash away
In the XC1 Pro ranks GBC’s Bryan Cook and
Kevin Yoho engaged in an early battle that
pushed them into an impressive 6th and 7th in
the final standings. Jeff Pickens was in the mix
with Cook and Yoho early on, but some late race
issues held him to 9th place on the day.
XC2 Pro Am racer Eric Hoyland fought hard
over the 2nd place position all day, coming up
just one second short. Nevertheless, Hoyland
landed his GBC-equipped Derisi Racing machine on
the podium. Georgia native Richie Brown used the
grip of his Ground Buster II rear tires to grab
the XC2 holeshot award to start off the day.
Kristen Atwell put together another solid
performance, finishing 2nd on the day in the
final round of racing. She’ll end up in 3rd
place in the Pro Womens class on the season.
In the earlier morning race, GBC rider
Forrest Whorton notched yet another win in the
4x4 45+ class, bringing his win total to 12 in
just 13 rounds of competition.
