March 17, 2009 — Woodcliff Lake, NJ – Since the “Husqvarna Guest Factory Rider” program was announced it’s attracted the attention of riders across the continent hoping to be selected to participate at one of the 2009 GNCC events. Rounds 1 and 2 featured former AMA National and 6-Day “Husky Heroes”, Terry Cunningham and Mike Melton who both did themselves proud with their performances and reminded us once again what made them great back in the day. Now with GNCC rounds 3 and 4 in the crosshairs a pair of Armed Services members, Jeffrey Gordy and Toby Atkins, has been recruited to pick up where Cunningham and Melton left off.After retirement from a 27-year career in civilian law enforcement, Jeffrey Gordy, (pictured here) joined the U.S. Army where he’s served for the past couple of years including a 13-month stint in Iraq as an embedded law enforcement professional investigator with the 3rd Infantry Division 3rd Brigade. “It is one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had and I look forward to continuing my service with the United States Army,” said Gordy. A two-time Police & Fire Motorcycle Olympian and prior to giving up riding to serve his country Gordy was a top finishing SETRA “A” class Hare Scrambles rider and runner up for the 2004-05 age group title. This soldier is also a tri-athlete and no slouch on or off a motorcycle.As a Guest Factory Rider his intentions are “To represent service members and the law enforcement community who serve our country in Iraq and Afghanistan.” He’s also guaranteed that he won’t tear up the Wyatt Seals prepped factory 450 Husky like he suggests his good friend Mike Melton did at Round 2. Game on, Jeff, and good luck to you!
