New Berlin, NY -- As an added bonus to this weekend's third-annual Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series race at the famous Unadilla Valley Sports Center, Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) will offer Can-Am ATV demo rides at the race this weekend, Sept 15 and 16."Can-Am will have a selection of Outlander and Renegade models to ride," said Dave Ahlers District Sales Manager for BRP. "Our plan is to do ATV demos across the street from the GNCC track. We've had demos there before at previous BRP events, so a trail exists that is safe and far removed from the GNCC event. Can-Am is confident that once you ride one of our ATVs you will be impressed. The ride says it all!"In order to participate in the Can-Am demo ride, you must be at least 18 years of age and must not consume any alcohol or drugs prior to riding. The Can-Am ATV is a zero tolerance machine. "Simply come to the Can-Am display truck and sign a safety/waiver form and we will do the rest," Ahlers continued. "Rides will start at 10 a.m. and go to 3 p.m. Bring your riding gear if you have it, or borrow one of our helmets." This weekend's GNCC now promises more than ever at the world-famous Unadilla racetrack and this private ATV showcase in New Berlin, NY.
