Round 11 of the GNCC was filled with intense moments and amazing competition as top racers from across the country went head to head for bragging rights and valuable championship points in the country’s most revered racing series. Two weeks worth of sustained rain leading up to the event made for slick and unforgiving track conditions as fans settled in for what would be an incredible day of racing at Matthews Farm in Pennsylvania.

Cole Richardson – Edinburg, PA
GBC Motorsports sponsored racer Cole Richardson had a career best day at Round 11. After securing the $250 Wiseco holeshot in spectacular fashion, Richardson hammered down on the slick terrain and whilst battling with fellow GBC rider Walker Fowler was able to create significant space between them and the pursuing pack. As the battle progressed, Fowler and Richardson would exchange the lead dozens of times and the crowd was thrilled to see them perform. The race would prove to be an accurate depiction of the talent level and dedication of the two skillful racers. However, in the end it would be Richardson who would pass the checkered flag first for the first Overall and XC1 Pro class wins of his already impressive career. Fowler grabbed the 2nd place position, which puts him one step closer to wrapping up his 4th consecutive GNCC Overall championship. Congratulations to both Cole Richardson and Walker Fowler from GBC Motorsports for the awesome performances.

A true champion, Pickens has amassed seven first place wins out of the 10 races she competed in. Hot on her heels at the end of Round 11 was Katelyn Osburn who has proven to be a serious threat not only for wins in 2018 but is establishing herself as a championship contender for 2019. Osburn currently holds the number 2 spot in class points, just 33 behind teammate Pickens. The 3rd place position was snatched by Meagan Shepherd, who also races as a sponsored rider for GBC Motorsports. Shepherd showed tremendous discipline and racing knowledge during her battle at Round 11, and after navigating the slippery course at breakneck speed she crossed the checkered flag in 3rd place.
