Chris Borich, Walker Fowler and Chris Bithell swept the XC1 Pro podium at GNCC Round 5, held April 26-27 in Springville, Indiana.
Bithell began two hours of fiercely competitive racing by grabbing the holeshot, his first ever as a pro. He went on to hold the lead for three fourths of the race. Borich made steady progress to join Bithell and Fowler in the front three halfway through, gaining the front spot in the final lap with Fowler close behind. The two crossed the finish line less than a second apart.
The day was also good for Maxxis in XC2, with SICC Racing’s Marshall Goings taking the victory and AmPro Yamaha’s Cole Richardson grabbing second place. Rick Cecco dominated the morning race, taking third place overall and second in his 4x4 Pro class.
