Round three on the GNCC schedule was in Washington, Georgia for The General. The conditions on Sunday were sunny and the temperature was in the 50s, making it a good day for racing. Steve Holcombe had his best result at the GNCC as he continued to learn the style of riding required for the series. He was running in 5th before falling back and finishing 1.7 seconds behind 6th place. Jon Johnson and Evan Smith in the XC2 had mixed results on the day finishing 9th and 13th. Jay Lipscomb after running in the top 5 of the XC3, ran into an issue mid race that dictated his 9th place result.

"Happy with how round three went this past weekend. I didn’t get a great start but managed to make some good passes in lap one. It was fun to be in a battle the whole race with the others and get a feel for what the racing is like. I didn’t put myself in a great position the last half lap and ended 9th overall. A top 10 was the goal coming here so I’m happy with that. Time to head back home and get prepared for my season. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here and I’d like to thank the Beta US team for the help and support! Hopefully, I'll see you guys again soon."

"The General wasn't our best effort. We will learn from it and move on to the next round. I'm looking forward to getting back after it and showing what we are capable of."

"The General GNCC started out pretty good. I had a top 3 start going into the woods and made my way into the lead and battled upfront the whole first lap before an issue cost me some time. After that, I just had to battle from the back which hurt my result. Looking forward to fixing the little errors and doing better at the next one."
