“I had a solid weekend at Round 6 of the National Hare and Hound series. This round has been tough for me in past years, mainly due to poor starts and extremely dusty conditions, so I knew the start was going to be the most important aspect of the race for me. I got a terrible jump off the line after making a mistake and blipping the throttle too soon but I had a great line down the bomb run and was able to come out in second off the start. From there I just rode a smooth and consistent race and came home in second.”

“Round 6 didn’t go quite as planned! I had a decent start then got caught up in some dust which made it next to impossible to pass. Ended up 4th for the day.”

Mountaineer GNCC

Beckley, West Virginia

September 11th, 2022

The Mountaineer GNCC was a muddy affair.  With rain on all day Saturday and into Sunday morning the track condition got a bit sloppy.  At the start of the XC2 race both Evan Smith and Jon Johnson got out to top five starts.  Johnson was able to maintain his top five position for the first two laps until an issue slowed his progress. Evan Smith didn’t have his best today on the bike.  In the XC3 race, Jay Lipscomb was battling for the lead and fought hard on the day.  He came in second place just seconds off the win.
