Ryan Sipes, GNCC XC1 Pro- Rockstar/WMR/KTM

Even though Sipes has retired from full-time Supercross and Motocross and now races in the GNCC XC1 Pro class; that didn't stop him from showing  up and racing Round 4 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at High Point this past weekend. He proved he still has the speed to run in the premier class with 11-15 finishes for 13th overall. What's even more impressive is he did it with his GNCC offroad suspension set-up. In his first year in the XC1 class he's had mostly top ten finishes and sits 11th in points.

Chris Bach, GNCC XC1 Pro- JCR Honda

Bach's first season on the factory JCR Honda has been steadily improving throughout the year. He's scored multiple top ten finishes with his best being a 4th place at Loretta Lynn's. He sits 6th in points as the series resumes this weekend at Snowshoe. 2014 marks the first year for the iconic JCR Honda to compete full-time in the GNCC series.
