The 6th round of the Grand National Cross Country Series was held in the heartland of off-road racing, at the 30thAnnual John Penton GNCC, in Millfield, Ohio. Heavy rains Friday morning, as well as more showers early Saturday morning, made an already difficult race course, even worse. Ohio red clay is one of the hardest track surfaces in the world to figure out. In the same straight away you could have tacky conditions for ultimate traction, leading into ice rink like soil, constantly keeping riders on their toes. For three hours, riders not only battled each other, but the race course as well, which was the most difficult element of the race. FXR riders shined in the tough conditions. Round 7 of the GNCC series takes place January 1stand 2ndat the Tomahawk, in Odessa, New York.
