Cannonball GNCC rd 2 – Sparta, GA

Round 2 of the GNCC series took Trail Jesters Racing to Sparta, Georgia. The riders and crew were in good spirits and looking forward to the upcoming grueling duel with many of the top riders in the world. The guys got off the line pretty well and moved into the top 10 in XC2 and in the low 20’s overall.  After two laps Josh sat 7/21 and Ben was 8/22 only 2 seconds back! They shortly thereafter hit their first pit stop for fuel … coming out Josh’s bike wouldn’t start and that pretty much ended his day at 2 laps completed. Bummer for Josh to take a mech DNF, but he will bounce back next round.

Ben rode hard and smart picking up places and maintaining a great pace to take 6th place XC2 and 17th overall.  Ben now sits 5th in the XC2 championship points chase.
