MORGANTOWN, W.Va (June 17, 2015) – The ATV championship points battle of the 2015 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, heats up as the series heads to its final stop before summer break with this weekend’s AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC at the Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia.
CST/PirateMX.com/LSR/DeRisi/Tireblocks/SG rider Adam McGill currently holds a 22-point lead over N-Fab/AmPro Yamaha/Maxxis/Lonestar rider Walker Fowler, who claimed the win in the previous round at the Wiseco John Penton GNCC in Millfield, Ohio. Fowler will look to carry his momentum into this weekend’s round and hope to claim another win. However, a win will not come easily as Adam McGill is no stranger to the center of the Snowshoe podium as the West Virginia native won last year’s Snowshoe GNCC.
JMR/ATVRiders.com-backed Jarrod McClure still holds the third-place spot in the championship point standings. McClure has been able to claim multiple podium finishes throughout the 2015 season, but ultimately will be looking to claim his first-ever GNCC overall win. With rough, rocky and muddy terrain at Snowshoe, anything is possible and McClure has a chance to break through for his first win.
After a solid third-place XC1 and fourth-place overall finish at the John Penton GNCC, Maxxis/B. Neal Motorsports Brycen Neal currently sits tied for fourth place in the championship standings. Neal will look to return to the podium this weekend with the hopes of improving his championship points position.
Team Maxxis’ Chris Borich sits tied with Neal for the fourth-place position. While Borich still remains winless in the 2015 season, this will ultimately work as motivation for the defending series champion to return to his winning ways.
Bithell Racing/Maxxis/Precision’s Chris Bithell still remains the only rider other than McGill and Fowler to claim a win in the 2015 season. Unfortunately, Bithell has also seen a bit of bad luck several times throughout the season and will look to rebound to improve upon his current sixth-place ranking in championship points.
