Maxxis Sweeps Pro ATV Podium at GNCC Round 5
Maxxis owned the XC1 Pro podium at Round 5 of the GNCC, with a fourth win for Chris Borich and second and third place showings for Walker Fowler and Taylor Kiser. Round 5 was held April 28 in Park City, Kentucky.
The company’s sponsored riders ruled from the start of the race, as Fowler took the holeshot and jockeyed with Kiser and another rider for the lead. Borich took a spot among the front five racers soon after the start, and took the victory with a pass near the end. “I was pushing on [Fowler], and he started making little mistakes here and there,” said Borich. “With the course being so tight, there wasn’t much room for passing, so I waited for a field section to put a pass on him. The course was like an old GNCC, super-tight and technical, just really rough. The tires hooked up on the hill-climbs with rock faces and tree roots.” Borich leads the XC1 class in points, with Kiser in third place and Fowler in fourth.
A Maxxis rider also topped the XC2 Pro Am podium as Gabe Phillips took his second class win of the season and seventh place overall. Phillips is fourth in points for XC2.
Taking her third win of the year and finishing second overall in the morning race, Traci Cecco leads the Women’s class in points. Team UXC had another outstanding weekend as well, with Michael Swift taking second place for 4×4 Open and fifth place overall and Cliff Beasley remaining undefeated in the U2 class. Beasley was eighth overall for the morning and is in first place in U2 points.
Borich, Fowler, Kiser, Phillips and Cecco counted on Razr rear and Razr 2 front tires at the Mammoth GNCC round. Team UXC is running the Bighorn 2.0 throughout the season.
Maxxis thanks all of its riders for their fine performances.
