Chalk Up Another Two In The XC2 Top Five For The Monster Energy/
Andrews/Yamaha GNCC Team

Monster-backed Dustin Gibson is on the podium (3rd) for the third-
straight race, Josh Weisenfels is 5th at Morganton (N.C.) Can-Am GNCC 
Series event

CORONA, Calif., (March 31, 2008) ”“ Fred Andrews’ Monster Energy/Yamaha 
team had another good weekend on the Can-Am Grand National Cross 
Country Series tour, this past weekend in Morganton, N.C., overcoming 
cold and rainy conditions to capture two top five positions ”“ 
including a podium ”“ in the XC2 class

Leading the Monster Energy/Andrews/Yamaha race team was again Dustin 
Gibson, who brought his YZ250F home in 3rd place overall. Also running 
well was Josh Weisenfels who finished 5th despite a couple crashes.

“Josh and Dustin got out in 2nd and 3rd heading into the woods, but 
Josh crashed and came back past the pits in 5th while Josh got some 
arm pump and faded back to 7th,” said Andrews. “By the gas stop Josh 
was back in 7th, but Dustin had moved up to 5th.”Â

Gibson continued to fight off the gnarly effects of arm pump and moved 
into the top five by the white flag, and almost had 2nd when he 
crashed trying to make the pass at the finish.

Said Gibson: “I need to get rid of this arm pump. My Monster/Andrews/
Yamaha is the best bike I have ever raced. Three-for-three on the box 
isn’t bad, but I want to be on the top of the box.”Â

Next up for the Monster Energy/Andrews/Yamaha team is the Big Buck 
GNCC in South Carolina, April 13th.
