delCoastal Racing Husqvarna's Craig DeLong prevailed through muddy and unpredictable conditions on Sunday to earn his fifth XC2 250 Pro class podium of the season with 2nd place at Round 6 of the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series in Peru, Indiana. Heavy rainfall in the days leading up to the race made for sloppy conditions on Sunday and the GNCC crew was forced to combine the 10 a.m. Amateur and 1 p.m. Pro races together for one big race. Additionally, the typically three-hour afternoon race was consolidated down to two-hours and took place on a shortened 7-mile course due to unpassable sections of the track. XC2 250 Pro:As the green flag dropped for the XC2 250 Pro (16-24) class, Costal Racing Husqvarna teammates Layne Michael and Craig DeLong did their best to get off the line cleanly amidst a chaotic start to the race. Michael got off to a favorable top-five start, while DeLong began the race just outside the top ten. Both riders were able to vault themselves into a top-five position by the next lap as Michael sat in 2nd place and DeLong in 5th on lap two. By the next lap, DeLong had made his way into the 4th place position, while Michael dropped into 5th just behind his teammate. Things really mixed up on the fourth and final lap as DeLong was able to put himself into the 2nd place position, while Michael dropped back to 7th after getting stuck near the end of the race.  DeLong commented, "I got another bad start but it didn't matter too much because of the mud. I started to pick off riders and made my way into 4th on lap two. I went back and forth from 2ndall the way to 5th. The track was crazy and the guy who made the least mistakes won. I'm happy with the outcome and glad to finish and get good points. We'll be back next week to fight for the win." DeLong's 2nd place finish accounted for his fifth podium appearance of the season where he continues to chip away at the XC2 250 Pro Championship in 2nd place.  Michael ultimately finished 7th place in the class after getting stuck on the final lap. "I got a good start and rode pretty smart all day," Michael said. "I thought I finished 4th for the day but I ended up 7th, it was pretty confusing out there. I only got stuck once on the last lap for a couple minutes but there were so many lines and people going everywhere. All in all, I'm happy to finish with championship points and looking ahead to this weekend's John Penton."  XC1 Open Pro: Coastal Racing Husqvarna rider Ryan Sipes had a tough go in Indiana as he was only able to complete three of the four laps due to the conditions. Sipes struggled with staying on two wheels throughout the entire two-hour race, where he ended up 12th in the XC1 Open Pro class. "I felt like I forgot how to ride a motorcycle - I crashed and crashed and crashed," Sipes said. "It was a bad race and I'm doing everything I can to figure out how to ride without crashing. I'm going to keep working hard and hopefully turn it around here soon - I'm having a bad season and need to get it turned around."

grillsRound 6 of the GNCC series brought our team to the X-Factor.  The X-Factor is a 1,000 acre whitetail deer hunting preserve located in Peru, Indiana.  Several days of rain made conditions practically impossible, making for blown engines and DNF's. Due to conditions being brutal, the 10am amateur race was combined with the1pm pro race and held at 1pm.   WXC Pro Tayla Jones, not feeling 100%, decided to sit this round out so she can be ready for next week's round 7. XC1 Pro, Grant Baylor, battled through the mud to finish 7th. "The race didn't go as planned.  I just got stuck a few too many times to run with the top guys". XC2 Pro, Jesper Borjesson; "Made a good start this time and was 3rd going into the woods. Made a small mistake in the first mud hole and fell back to 4th or 5th. Pushed hard to get up front and made it up to second. After first lap I was 2nd in XC2 and 4th overall. On the second lap I was mixed in the front of XC1 but we came to a technical uphill with a lot of lapped riders stuck and I made a mistake which cost me a lot of positions. Struggled also through lap 3 and went down a couple of times. 4th lap was a little bit better and made some passes and finished 8th in XC2 and 17th overall.  Happy to see that I have the speed to be up front, I just need to continue in this direction and stop making mistakes"  XC3 Pro Am, Hunter Neuwirth finished 7th for the day.

West Hare Scrambles Championship, Pioche, Nevada. NICK BURSON 1st Place

ashburn11GNCC ace Jordan Ashburn finished a solid fifth at round six of the X-Factor held in Peru, Indiana. The event was cut short due to the track becoming impossible to navigate due to the rain. Ashburn rode smart and moved himself into 5th in the XC1 Championship points. Jordan Ashburn comments: "Well it was a nasty muddy weekend in  Indiana. Got a great start to the day but shortly after missed a line and got shuffled to the back of the pack. I made some passes to secure 3rd place. Fourth and fifth place caught up to me with 2 laps to go. And I stayed with them till the last lap before they pulled a real "interesting" lap. So we rounded out the top 5." Beta's fill-in XC2 rider Drew Higgins had some sort of clutch issue which caused a DNF for the day. Beta's Max Gerston finished 3rd at last weekend's AMA National Hare Scrambles championship held in Pioche, Nevada. The event was more like a Hare & Hound as the terrain was higher speed with desert-like dust. Gerston fell to second place in the championship points however with three of the four remaining rounds being very technical, the odds for a title are in his favor. Max Gerston Comments: The extremely fast and dusty track in Pioche, Nevada proved to be a tough one. The dust was blinding and lacked any bit of technicality. However, my 390 worked surprisingly well on the fast rocky track and I was able to earn a solid 3rd place. I am looking forward to the rest of the series and see race wins in the future.

Round five of the AMA National Hare and Hound series played out in Jericho, Utah over the weekend, marking the official half way point of the 2017 season. Hosted by Sageriders MC, 100 miles over a 3-loop course awaited Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jacob Argubright who came into the round 3rd overall in points.  At noon on Saturday, the Sageriders MC banner dropped and Argubright instantly started his Husqvarna FX 450. Although he struggled to move himself into a favorable position, Argubright made passes from 6th to 2nd overall by the 5-mile mark. Coming into the pits after a challenging loop one, Argubright sat less than 10-seconds behind the overall leader. Looking strong and focused, he continued to charge with hopes of closing the gap on the leader. By the end of the second (shortest) loop, he lost a little time and came into the pits less than one minute behind. With just one final  32-mile loop to go, Argubright was able to make up time in the flats of the first half, but lost time in the trees. A looming storm followed the front runners to the third loop, as it began to rain and dampen the dirt offering perfect racing conditions. Ultimately coming through the checkered flag in 2nd overall, he made valuable gains in his hunt for the championship. Argubright, who now sits 2nd overall in the point standings, stated, “I have always really enjoyed racing in Utah; as it offers just the right mix of fast and technical terrain. My bike worked perfectly today, and I feel the progress we have been making is starting to show. I am looking forward to the short break we have before round six, and continuing to make progress heading into the second half of the season.” Round six of the series will take place on May 6 th in Plymouth, Utah.

PurvNational Hare & Hound Championship, Jericho, Utah.
GARY SUTHERLIN 3rd Place
Gary Sutherlin was coming into round 5 of NHHA with one thing on his mind...damage control. "My calf barely fit in my boot, my shoulder still hurt, I couldn't ride or train and I had a fever and cold the night before the race, I was not looking forward to Sunday." Sutherlin just wanted to get the best result he could salvage so that he'd still be in the points chase. "I got a good start but rode tentatively. At the end of the bomb I checked up and Taylor got by right then and for the next 5-10 miles I just didn't want to make things worse for myself." The race was one of the longer rounds this year, clocking in around the 3 and a half hour mark. "It was a long race, I got into 3rd, put my head down and just did the best I could to stay in that spot. I was so mentally and physically drained but I had to push through the misery and make it happen. I'm glad I could pull off a podium under the circumstances and grab some more points." Sutherlin is now leading the National Hare & Hound series as well as the WORCS series.
