MORGANTON, N.C. (March 31, 2019) – The 2019 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship headed to North Carolina for round three, the 20th Annual FMF Steele Creek GNCC.
After a rough start to the season LanMills XC/CST Tires/Houser/Yamaha’s Brycen Neal battled back, earning his first podium finish of the season with a second overall. Neal and Richardson would swap the second and third place position multiple times on the opening laps, but Neal would have the consistency throughout the two hour race to land himself in the top three.
Maxxis/Elka/Moose Racing’s Jarrod McClure came through timing and scoring fourth on the first lap of the day, but it wouldn’t take long for McClure to make his move for a podium finishing position. McClure also had a bumpy start to the season, but has shown that he has put in the work and is ready to contest for the win after earning third overall in North Carolina yesterday.
The 2019 GNCC Series returns in two weeks, April 13-14, with the CST Tires Camp Coker Bullet in Society Hill, South Carolina.
