You Want To Race ATVs? Here Is Your Chance To Learn- GNCC University

GNCC University

ATV racing appeals to many, but what do you need to know and how do you get started? Yamaha has come up with a way to help. Yamaha announces the return of Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) University. Hosted before round eight of the 2019 GNCC series at Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia from June 19 to 21, Yamaha is bringing together top off-road ATV and motorcycle racers to instruct in-depth courses on the fundamentals of racing.

GNCC University- Walker Fowler

 Walker Fowler is one of the instructors.

A panel of professional instructors will head 80 students in several groups of ATV and motorcycle courses. Celebrating 25 years of racing at a pro-level, XC1 Pro ATV rider Johnny Gallagher will lead this year’s Yamaha Racing ATV instructors, along with four-time AMA National GNCC Champion Walker Fowler, and 11-time Women’s Class Champion Traci Pickens. Two-wheel courses will be led by seven-time AMA National Enduro Champion and AmPro Yamaha Racing team owner Randy Hawkins, along with five-time AMA National Hare Scramble Champion Jason Raines, XC1 rider Ricky Russell, and women’s WXC competitors Rachael Archer and Becca Sheets.

“Through GNCC University, participating riders of all skill levels learn ATV or motorcycle racing tips and techniques to put into practice on the track – and who better to acquire it from than current pros and hall-of-famers themselves,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s motorsports group marketing manager. “We’re excited to bring back this very special and unique opportunity to aspiring off-road racers, especially to where it originated years ago at Snowshoe.”

GNCC University- Johnny Gallagher

Johnny Gallagher is also an instructor.

During the GNCC University, students will participate in lectures about sportsmanship, training, proper nutrition, and mental preparation, along with practicing how to tackle hills, grass tracks, woods, rocks, mud, and starts in a competitive setting. Groups will be determined according to bike size and rider skill level to ensure everyone is learning with comparable peers.

If you have any interest in seeing what it takes to be a Pro-ATV Racer this is your opportunity to learn from the best. We need to send Josh to this!

Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis with 80 openings evenly split between ATV and Motorcycle disciplines. Tuition for GNCC University is $500 per student and includes room, board, and meals. For more details and to register, call the Snowshoe Mountain Resort at 877-441-4386.
