Dates and venues for the 2020 Grand National Cross Country – GNCC – have been announced with 13 rounds and the return of two favourites in next year's championship.
The dates and venues for the 2020 Grand National Cross Country series – GNCC – have been announced which will stretch from February to October with the championship making up 13 rounds.
Kicking off with the Big Buck GNCC on February 22 – 23 in Union, South Carolina, the series will include favourites such as Tomahawk, John Penton and Snowshoe GNCCs together with new additions and old venues making a comeback.
2020 will see a return to Windmill Park for the Mountain Ridge GNCC for the first time since 2015 for round six. The series will also return to the Bluegrass State of Kentucky for the first time since 2013 for the Gladiator GNCC which promises to throw a board range of rolling hills and virgin trails for round seven.
GNCC will run a pretty tight schedule from round one at the end of February through March, April and May. After Snowshoe GNCC at the end of June the championship takes its traditional break for summer which next year will include the International Six Days Enduro in Italy during August – a rain date is also reserved in July 11 – 12 in case a race gets cancelled in the first half of the season.
“The 2020 GNCC Racing season promises to bring even more of the great racing action you’ve come to expect,” said Jeff Russell, GNCC Trail Boss. “We’re continuing with some of our favourite facilities that always produce great tracks, and we’re really excited for the addition of Bowling Green’s Gladiator GNCC in May.”
