Round 8 - Thad DuVall
Round 8 of the GNCC series was held near Masontown, WV. The Mountaineer Run
was highly anticipated for Team Shenandoah Honda/USWE-sports.com rider Thad Duvall
hauling from nearby Williamstown WV. Muddy conditions were waiting for the GNCC
riders, dust was not going to be a factor. Duvall, racing a CRF 250, had a
mid pack start and moved into 5 th place after the first lap. During the second lap he
experienced mechanical difficulty resulting in a quick pit stop to fix the
problem. Unable to resolve the issue, Duvall had to park his bike after the
second lap. Later the problem was diagnosed as moisture in the fuel injection
components. Duvall was credited with a 11 th place in the XC 1 class and
now sits in 5 th place in the point standings.
Results XC 1: 1. Russell (KTM) 2. Strang (Kaw) 3. Mullins (KTM)
11. Duvall (Hon)
