What happened to Rodney Smith, the Kied and Lafferty? 8 Yamahas in the top ten? :) The tuning fork people must be pretty content.

Servus,

Anybody knows which Yamaha who is riding. Hawk is on a YZ250, but I suppose there is no WR450F?

Actually the lastest results
Hawk
Jenks
Raines
Edmisten
Hawkins
from the GNCC web site.
My buddy who called me Tuesday said it was the worst GNCC ever, mud up to the seat. The Suzuki boys Smith (31) Hatch (189) Kied (190)and Freddie(239) and Lafferty (246) actually didn't finish but there were a lot of protests. There's talk of having a throw away.

And the commentary:
The rain gods were kind to the AMA Grand National Cross Country Series last year, but the all-new Hurricane GNCC in Palatka, Florida proved this is a new season and the riders will have to deal with new conditions. The track nearly drowned after a week of steady rains, and in what was simply a race for survival, Team Am-Pro Yamaha's Barry Hawk led a Yamaha sweep with the win. SCR Yamaha's Robbie Jenks claimed second and Hawk's Am-Pro Yamaha teammate Jason Raines was third.

"I wasn't even trying to go fast out there," said Hawk. "I don't know what to say, I was just trying to be smart."

Riding smart was the key, as the muddy course held numerous deep water holes and mud bogs that resulted in a pile of stuck or drowned out bikes. In fact, Yamaha was the only factory team that could get their riders to the finish. All three FMF Suzuki team riders, Rodney Smith, Steve Hatch and Mike Kiedrowski, had big problems and didn't finish, and Team Green's Fred Andrews and Chuck Woodford and KTM's Mike Lafferty all suffered a similar fate.

This gives the Yamaha squad a huge boost in the series point standings, and the others will have to begin their comebacks this weekend at The General GNCC in Washington, Georgia.

For now, the Am-Pro/Yamaha/MSR/Bridgestone/FMF-backed Hawk is left with a perfect start to his quest to become the first rider ever to win GNCC ATV and Bike Championships. "I started feeling really good at the end of last season," said the Smithfield, Pennsylvania, resident. "I just kept that up through the off-season. I didn't try to relax or take a break, I just kept training and riding."

The Hurricane was wild right from the start, as Jeff Russell and the GNCC crew rerouted much of the muddy course onto fire roads and dry land to make the race happen. Smith and Raines got to turn one first and headed into the woods with a determined pro class behind them. Chaos ensued on lap one though, as riders began digging in, and drowning out, just a few miles into the race.

The man on the move was one of Yamaha's desert aces, Russ Pearson, who was flying early. But his wide-open style cost him, as numerous crashes let the steady Hawk, Jenks and Raines move through the pack. "I was just trying not to get stuck," said Raines. "I was criss-crossing all the ruts, riding like a snake so I wouldn't get caught."

Meanwhile, Lafferty crashed out trying to move through the pack, Smith, Andrews and Kiedrowski drowned out, Steve Hatch ran out of clutch, brakes and gas, and Chuck Woodford aggravated a shoulder injury he suffered a few days earlier.

It was one of the toughest races in years. Even the pit road was getting more and more difficult to negotiate as the ruts got deeper and the mud got thicker. Riders were drowning out and losing brakes and clutches and running out of gas. But there were still hundreds of riders out there having a great time.

Especially Hawk, who pulled through with his third GNCC win. "I'm right where I want to be," said the seven-time GNCC ATV Champ on the podium. "Now I just have to keep it up."

So which yamaha riders were on 4 strokes. I know Hawk was on his 2 smoker & jenks probably was as well. Did Hawkins ride the 4 stroke, i know he switched back & forth last season. What about Raines?

How did the thumpers do?

I know the 4 strokes did great in the Quad race, pro production 4 strokes finshed 1st & 2nd.
