Washington, Ga. – With only five days to regroup after the opening round of racing, the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series returned to action for round two at The Maxxis General GNCC in Washington, Ga. It was an all-out battle for the podium positions, as the top seven ATV racers ran nose-to-tail for six laps of the grueling two-hour race.
Three time and defending ATV champion, Chris Borich, used his veteran knowledge to once again outmatch his opponents and secure the win at Aonia Pass MX Park. It wasn’t until XC1 rookie Walker Fowler ran into late-race mechanical issues that Borich was able to breathe easily, though.
“At the beginning of the race we were just having fun, I mean Wolf lead there for a little bit,” Borich said. “I passed him and he would pass me back and we joked around quite a bit. It was a fun time out there, I got to ride with pretty much all the top guys and it was just a fun time.”
