Chris Bach wins C-Cycle Crow hill GP
The third round of the J Day GP series was located at the infamous Crow Hill MX Facility. With heavy rain during the week and beautiful weather for Saturday and Sunday, the conditions at the C Cycle Crow Hill GP were just right. Once again, J Day Off Road brought in record crowds with 400 racers and over 1500 Fans. The $3,000.00 Pro Purse provided top notch spectating and overall the atmosphere was electric.
Moto one stared with Johnny Girrior grabbing the STS motorsports Holeshot.
Girrior would battle with Robby Marshall for the first lap until Johnny’s race ended early with a mechanical failure. Robby Marshall took the lead putting down blistering fast laps, until he popped his rear tire on the second lap and eventually finished fourth in the Moto. Top contender Jake Korn running 3rd off the start had a nasty crash on the second straightaway, which ended in a violent cartwheel. Korn got up immediately and finished the race in 7th place in spite of a very twisted front end. GNCC XC1 contender Chris Bach and Nathan Kanney would take over first and second and put down very fast consistent laps for the remainder of the race. Chris Bach held off Kanney to take the Moto one win with Kanney finishing second. Third Place in Moto one went to Mike Sottile who looked to be catching the top two guys in the last few laps.
Moto two saw all of the top contenders back on the line, Johnny Girrior with a fresh engine, Robby Marshall with a new rear wheel, and Jake Korn on his spare bike.
Johnny Girrior would grab the STS Motorsports Holeshot for a second time with Robby Marshal in tow. Robby Marshal would take the lead on the opening lap. The two battled for nearly half the race, eventually leading to Robby Marshal winning by 30 seconds. Third place went to Chris Bach who rode consistently fast by himself for a majority of the race. Fourth and fifth would go to Mike Sottile and Nate Kanney who rode very close all day.
The Overall went to Chris Bach with a 1-3 moto score, Robby Marshall took second with 4-1 moto scores and Mike Sottile third overall with 3-4 moto scores. In the Amateur division Guy LaFleur took the B Open win and was awarded the $100 Kevin’s Cycle Amateur Award.
