Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team’s Craig DeLong kept his XC2 250 Pro class podium streak alive on Sunday with a third-place finish at Round 5 of the 2020 Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series in Society Hill, South Carolina.
DeLong got off to a mid-pack start aboard his FC 250 and he quickly worked his way into the top-five on the opening lap. He continued to charge early on as he moved into third on lap two and he diced back-and-forth for the final podium position for the remainder of the race. With two laps to go, he solidified the third-place position and he held strong to secure his fifth podium appearance of the season.
“I was pretty much in the second through fourth-place battle all day and I got a little lucky there at the end with Ryder destroying a wheel,” DeLong said. “It was a good day getting on the podium but I’m not happy with how I rode and how I managed the race, so I’ll just come back stronger at the next one.”
Next Event: TBA
