ISDE Prompts Revision of 2009 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series Dates

MORGANTOWN, W. Va (October 17, 2008) -- Racer Productions, the producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, has revised the previously-announced dates for the 2009 GNCC tour. The final two 2009 rounds will move back one week to accommodate the 2009 International Six-Days Enduro (ISDE), which will be held October 5-10 in Figueira da Foz, Portugal.

“We announced our dates in July, but we're happy to move them to fit the ISDE schedule,” says GNCC Traill Boss Jeff Russell, a multi-time ISDE Gold Medallist himself. “We're proud of the GNCC racers that compete in the ISDE every year, and we want them bring home more medals next year.”  

Locations for each of the 13 rounds will be announced at a later time.
