Press Release –
Factory FRE/KTM rider Adam McGill earned his second win in a row at the third round of the ATV GNCC Series.
After a dominating win at the Georgia round McGill repeated the result this weekend to prove it wasn’t a fluke and he is indeed a title contender for this season’s championship.
Just like he did at round 2, McGill pulled an amazing holeshot and got out front fast. By the end of the first lap he had already put 20 seconds on the second place rider, Bill Balance. McGill’s teammate, Taylor Kiser started a bit farther back around 10th place and had moved into 7th by the end of lap one.
After the first lap Kiser had caught up with Brandon Sommers and Chris Borich and the three riders battled throughout the remainder of the two hour race.
I caught up to the front pack rather quickly but every time I tried to pass I would get stuck behind lappers in a bottleneck and lose time. It was a one-lined course and since I didn’t have the start I needed I struggled to break through, commented Kiser.
Meanwhile, McGill was still pulling out front stretching his lead to over a minute. McGill would go on to win after leading the race start to finish in a near flawless ride out front.
Kiser finished 7th for the day earning enough points to keep him in the title chase. After three rounds McGill and Kiser now sit one and two in the series points.
I am so happy to be on top of the podium for the second week straight, replied McGill after the race. This is where I’ve known I could be for a long time, but I couldn’t have made it happen if it wasn’t for the help of my team and a great bike. My KTM is running perfect and almost makes my job seem easy.
