KR4 Team Visits Local Georgia School to Present Anti-Bullying Program

SPARTA, GA, March 26, 2017- On Sunday, the forecast for rain held off for the round three of the Amsoil Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) series. This made for humid and dusty conditions on the track.  

Tayla Jones captured her third consecutive WXC win! Tayla had a small crash on the last lap, but not enough to cause her problems, as shown by her 4 minute gap behind Mullins who was the overall leader. Tayla said on the podium that she's been "trying to take things one race at a time" and so far it seems to be a winning strategy for her.

Grant Baylor XC1 took off mid-pack and worked his way up into the 5th place position but just could not hold strong in that position toward the last laps and dropped back to land in 8th place. Scott Grills XC1 had mechanical problems and was unable to finish. Jesper Borjesson XC2 broke his hand guard and struggled throughout the race with problems related and finished in 11th place.  Hunter Neuwirth XC3 had a season best finish for 4th in that highly competitive class.  

Conner Keegan 4-Stroke A Lites had the best race so far this season and captured 2nd place followed by Colin Keegan in 5th place. Hunter Williams 4-Stroke A Lites finished in 8th place followed by Colton Reschke who flew in from Minnesota to experience the KR4 Arrive and Ride program for this race and finished in 16th place.
