JCR/Honda Race report: 2014 GNCC round 2, Washington, Georgia: "The General"!

JCR/Honda Race report: 2014 GNCC round 2, Washington, Georgia: "The General". The first two rounds of JCR's GNCC program has been a very "wet" introduction. After a difficult round one that lead to a mud induced overheating issue in Florida, the team regrouped and began the process of preparing for round two in Georgia. Our hopes of a dry race were dashed, as the skies tore open Saturday night and unleashed massive amounts of rain turning the pleasant creek crossings into a torrential, bike-swallowing river that left the course under water in most areas. JCR/Honda's Chris Bach put in a solid 3rd place start aboard his Honda CRF450R. After the first two sloppy laps, the Red Rider found himself smack dab in the middle of a 5-way dogfight for the lead. Riders would stop every lap for goggles and on the third lap, a quick splash of fuel. After the half way point Bach was making an advance on a competitor and tangled bars in the slimy Georgia red clay. Bach got the short end of the stick and was forced to take evasive action to avoid a crash, and sunk the bike in a bottomless mud hole. The determined JCR/Honda racer, dug himself from the slop, and powered his way back to a 7th place finish in the XC1 class. The next stop for the JCR/Honda team is GNCC round #3 in Morganton, North Carolina, March 29-30. Remember to can watch GNCC live and archives from previous rounds! On http://www.RacerTV.com

β€œWow! After the last two rounds of wet conditions it has been quite the "Show" at the GNCC's. The JCR/Honda team is working hard on all levels to progress this program to the podium. Chris has been an amazing racer to work with in our young team. I have no doubt we will be hitting the podium soon. Chris is working hard and our Honda CRF450R is developing into a really great weapon for cross-country racing. Stay tuned in as we work hard to build a champion in this young program. Special thanks to Rockstar Energy for providing the Energy we need to compete in these endurance races and the canopies that kept the crew dry and thanks to Lucas Oils for supplying us with the oils and lubricants we needed to race in these wet sloppy conditions. Looking forward to next round in North Carolina.” -- Johnny Campbell

β€œTough day on the course, but my Honda CRF450R kept me in the lead pack before rider error kept us from a top finish. Looking forward to refining my race strategy and racing the awesome Honda CRF450R.” -- Chris Bach
