PASO ROBLES, CA - Beta factory pilot Chris Bach is ready to get back on the podium. The 22 year old Indiana rider has had a couple finishes outside the top ten and is ready to change all that.

“It’s been a rough few weeks following my Georgia crash and disappointing finish in North Carolina. I’ve finally been able to get back to training properly and have┬áput in much needed seat time┬áto prepare for this weekend’s race. We’re all looking forward to South Carolina and ready to put in a solid finish to get the momentum back in our direction” Bach states.

This weekend’s Round 4 of the Pirelli Big Buck GNCC is held in Union, South Carolina. The event will not be an easy affair as riders prepare for the three hour battle. Chris Bach will be piloting his factory Beta 450 RR.

Watch for Chris as well as other factory supported riders Justin Sode and Michael Grizzle to be pushing their way to the front. Results can be found at www.gnccracing.com

River Ranch, FL – Charlie Mullins topped a deep field of off-road racers to win the opening round of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Series, the Moose Racing Westgate River Ranch GNCC, at the Westgate River Ranch Resort near Lake Wales, Florida.

Mullins played his cards just right on the rough and sandy course, staying within striking distance of the leaders for most of the three-hour race, but saving just enough energy for a final push. In the end, a last lap sprint to the finish was more than enough to give the factory KTM rider the “W”.

KTM factory WORCS rider Mike Brown, who was making a rare GNCC appearance, led more laps than anyone in the race, taking the lead on the second lap from defending series champ Josh Strang and holding it until Mullins took the top spot with a last lap pass through a mud hole. Ultimately, Brown settled for second ahead of Chris Bach, who turned some heads by putting his Beta 450 RR on the podium in his first national appearance for American Beta.
