Round 9 - Thad DuVall

Round 9 of the GNCC Series was held this weekend at the ski resort Snowshoe, WV. The rocky venue has mixd feelings to Team Shenandoah Honda/USWE-sports.com rider Thad Duvall with a XC 2 win in 2006 but also nothing better then a 9th the four years after in the XC 1 class. Motivated to set the record straight, Duvall took of mid pack but soon was chasing Mullins for the lead. He followed Mullins for another lap before taking the lead on the third time around. Lap 4 he moved down to second before he hit a rock and broke his shifter. Stuck in 3 rd gear he continued to race toward the pits were the team crew quickly installed a new one. By this time he has slid to 8th place. Determined to make up lost ground he completed lap 5 in 5th place (XC1) setting a blistering pace and was in 4th by lap 7. Seven XC 1 class riders completed lap 8, with Duvall finishing in 3rd for his fifth podium of the season. Duvall moved up one spot in the standing to fourth, just 1 point behind third Bach.
Results XC1 and Overall: 1. Russell 2. Mullins 3. Duvall (Honda 250 CRF)
