Beta pilot Chris Bach finished round 1 of the GNCC series in a solid 5th place. The race proved to test all the riders as rain created more whoops than normal, this combined with the 80 degree temps made for a brutal 3 hours.
Bach’s Beta 450 RR received pit support from WMR ( www.wmr1.com ) as well as suspension tuning from Joe Gibbs Racing ( www.jgrmx.com ). “With all the rain it turned out to be much rougher than previous races at this venue. My Beta handled everything great, and our 5th place finish gets us off to a solid start to 2012!” Bach explains.
Open A Beta racer Justin Sode was in second place at the start however a fall on lap three pushed the Ohio racer back to a 9th place finish at the end.
Next stop on the GNCC schedule is this weekend’s “The General” in Georgia.
