Cook got off to a decent start when the flag dropped, rounding the first corner around seventh position. He quickly climbed his way through the pack and moved to third by the end of the first lap. He remained in third place for the majority of the two-hour race until Adam McGill made a pass on him on the last lap.
Cook was beginning to settle for fourth when the second place ride of Chris Borich encountered a chain problem and fell out of the race. Borich’s technical difficulty bumped Cook back up to third where he happily took his first podium of the season.
“It feels great to finally get on the podium,” says Cook. “I have been riding really well this year but have not had the total combination of speed and luck needed to get on the podium until today. Snowshoe is one of the most well known GNCC rounds so I feel fortunate to be on the podium here.
