FRE/KTM ATV Race Report: GNCC Finale
FRE/KTM ATV GNCC rider Bryan Cook earned 6th overall at the Grand National Cross Country Series finale after a three-hour battle with Kevin Yoho and Donald Ockerman for the position.
Cook got off to a decent start rounding the first corner inside the top ten. From the opening lap to the ending lap, he remained in close battle with Yoho and Ockerman constantly swapping positions. Cook started at the tail end of the battle and trailed Ockerman until the second lap when he moved into seventh. Two laps later he took full advantage of an open line and made another pass on Yoho to take over sixth place. He went on to claim sixth overall for the day.
His final race result allowed him to earn seventh overall in the overall point standings, one position above his ranking from the previous season.
“We had some ups and downs this season, but most of it was out of our control – just another part of racing,” says Cook. “I am happy with my overall result today and my season. I would just like to thank my team for everything they have done to help get me to the races this season.”
