KYMCO USA’s ATV team took 1st & 2nd in the 4×4 Lites class, a 2nd place finish in the 90cc Limited class, and a 9th place finish in the Sport (15+) class last weekend at the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) race at the historic Unadilla Valley Sports Complex in New Berlin, N.Y.
Kyle Golding took the checkered flag in the 2-hour 4×4 Lites race atop his KYMCO Maxxer 450i IRS, finishing just 1 min. 7 sec. ahead of teammate Zach Stoddard and his Maxxer 450i IRS. The victory positions Golding 2nd in his class overall standings. Stoddard is 3rd overall, 11 points behind Kyle.
KYMCO Team Rider Brendan Golding roared to a 2nd place finish in the 90cc Limited race on his Mongoose 90R. The podium finish positions Brendan 2nd in his class standings, only one point behind the leader.
In the two-hour Sport (15+) race, Taylor “Turbo” Stoddard scrambled to 9th place on his Mongoose 300. The hard-fought finish keeps Turbo 8th in his class overall standings as the team prepares for the next GNCC race, September 24, at Mountain Ridge in Somerset, Penn.
“This was awesome, absolutely awesome,” KYMCO Team Race Manager Al Golding said upon seeing Kyle take the checkered flag. “We go through two weeks of prep for two hours of constant pounding on the guys and equipment. Now we go back to two weeks of prep to do it all over again.”
