Jan 14 The name Charlie Mullins is familiar to most GNCC fans, but his current exploits might not be. After retiring from professional racing, he found a new passion in bicycle racing. When GNCC started an eMTB racing series, it was a perfect fit. The 33-year old Mullins is the first-ever Specialized Turbo eMTB GNCC National Champion, as well as earning accolades in several other bicycle disciplines. Jan 7 The 2019 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, an AMA National Championship, concluded, October 27 and 28, with the AMSOIL Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Since 2010, this event has been deemed a “pink race” in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with several partners participating to raise money for the cause. Jan 7 Ashley Hendershot won the first-ever Specialized Turbo eMTB GNCC Women’s National Championship in 2019 and is looking forward to another season of eMTB racing – hopefully with a little more competition this time! Though the 31-year old from Mansfield, Ohio, was definitely a bicycle enthusiast before last year, she had very little racing experience and had actually never ridden an eBike prior to her first GNCC. Her husband is an ATV racer, who also won a title last year in the Vet B class and her son races mountain bikes… so you could say that racing of all kinds is very much a family activity for the Hendershots.
