The start at Snowshoe is unique, with a
maximum of five riders taking off together.
Chris Borich took the early lead, but it was
short-lived, as Adam McGill passed him
before the end of the first lap.
Team UXC Polaris-mounted Kevin Trantham had a stellar
race, finishing second in the 4X4 Pro class.
Yamaha’s Cole Richardson had been looking to reach the
podium all year long after a long bout with an illness. He finally achieved a final podium spot in third.
without the heavens opening up. The
Thursday before Snowshoe GNCC,
heavy rains flooded most of West
Virginia. Close to 30 people lost their
lives, and almost 1200 homes were
lost to the high waters. There were
very heavy hearts, and many GNCC
racers dedicated their race to the
ones that lost their lives or property.
Dirt Wheels magazine sends its con-
dolences to all of the affected families
of West Virginia.
Before this round, 2015 GNCC ATV
pro champion Walker Fowler had
the points lead, Adam McGill was
second, and six-time GNCC ATV
pro champion Chris Borich round-
ed out the top three. West Virginia
native McGill is the winningest rider
in Snowshoe history with three past
wins, and he is a fan favorite in his
home state. With this type of support
from family, friends, fans and know-
ing the terrain better than most rid-
ers, everyone knew he was the man
to beat for Snowshoe. Saturday was
bright and sunny in the morning, but
it would have taken a miracle for it to
not be a mudfest.
