FRE/KTM rider Bryan Cook earned another holeshot award at the second round of the GNCC Series in Aonia Pass, Ga.
Cook and his KTM ride shot off the line to nail the holeshot as the riders rounded the first corner of the XC1 class. Cook was followed closely by Chris Bithell, Brian Wolf, Chris Borich and Jarrod McClure. On the first lap the lead group swapped positions multiple times with Bithell eventually crossing the first lap mark in the lead. Soon after, a stick derailed Cook’s chain and his hopes for a strong finish. He was able to get moving again but lost significant time and positions.
At the end of the race, Cook was able to move into eighth place where he finished for the day. After two rounds, Cook now sits sixth in overall point standings.
“I am happy with my ride today. It is unfortunate that we lost the chain, but I am satisfied with my overall performance and my KTM was running great,” says Cook. We got the holeshot and put ourselves in good contention for a top spot before we had some bad luck.”
