Round 4 Big Buck- Thad DuVall

Race Report Team Shenandoah Honda/ ,GNCC Round 4 Big Buck
Round 4 of the GNCC was held in Union SC for the “Big Buck”. Team Shenandoah Honda/ rider Thad Duvall did recovered enough from his big crash two weeks ago (he tore some of his rib cartilage) to give it an honest effort. Unable to train properly and still in some pain, he rolled on the starting line. Once the
flag dropped he was in the back of the XC1 field, not something that we planned and he had his work cut out for him. After five minutes he crossed the timekeeping scoring in 18 overall and 8 th in the XC 1 class. Duvall started to pass riders left and right and by the time he passed the scoring area again he was in 3rd place (XC1), 28 seconds behind second place Mullins. The course was rough and took it’s toll on Duvall and his painful chest and ribs. Unable to keep up with the two front runner, he rode the rest of the race in nomansland to a well deserved third place, his second podium for the year. Duvall: ”I was a tough day. Not be able to practise last week and still being in pain, I knew that it would be hard to fight for a win. My start was bad but luckily I was able to move into third really quickly and settle down in a comfortable pace. Unfortunately it was not fast enough to fight with Mullins and Russell, but overall I’m happy with a podium”.
