GNCC Racing News Release
Morgantown, W.Va. (January 13, 2011) — Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, announces the Supplemental Rules and Classes for the 2011 GNCC tour. The Supplemental Rules and Classes for 2011 have been restructured with much consideration and input from industry leaders as well as competitors within the sport.
Due to the tremendous increase of more seasoned bike riders in the series, the Super Senior A (45+) Bike class has been created as part of the Super Senior A, B and C (45+) trifecta. This change will allow the growing amount of senior riders to compete against others similar to their skill level.
For 2011, the Youth ATV classes have been adjusted to better reflect the current OEM machines on the market. This includes the addition of 90 Open (12-15) and (8-11) classes, where shifter, automatic and CVT models can compete.
As we continue to grow our UTV (side-by-side) classes, minor adjustments have been made to reflect the heightened attention to safety for both competitors and machines.
“We feel that the 2011 GNCC rules and class structure will only help to make the racing better. It is our goal every year to create the most fair and competitive series in the country,” said Jeff Canfield, Technical Director of GNCC Racing.
