Racer Productions, producer of the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, is excited to announce the return of Yamaha’s GNCC University at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Yamaha’s top off-road ATV and motorcycle racers, along with select other top riders in the industry, will be on hand as instructors for this riding school, beginning just before the AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC, Round 8 of the 2019 GNCC season.

Led by Dean of Motorcycles, 7-Time AMA National Enduro Champion Randy Hawkins, this year’s bike instructors include 5-Time AMA National Hare Scramble Champion Jason Raines, XC1 rider Ricky Russell and WXC competitors Rachael Archer and Becca Sheets.

Professor of ATVs, XC1 Pro class rider Johnny Gallagher will lead this year’s Yamaha Racing ATV instructors, including 4-Time AMA National GNCC Champion Walker Fowler and 11-Time Women’s Class Champion Traci Pickens.

GNCC University is in session from June 19-21, 2019. Tuition, room and board—including meals throughout the school is $500 per student. Registration is now open through Snowshoe Mountain Resort. To reserve a spot, call Snowshoe Reservations at 877-441-4386.
