If you watch the X Games endurocross racing this weekend, here are a couple of guys to pay attention to, as they'll be in Big Sky this August for the Kenda Big Sky XC presented by KLIM.
Confirmed: Destry Abbott (Kaw) Max Gerston (Beta) Cory Graffunder (Husky) Kyle Redmond (Husky) Eric Rhoten (Hon) Kevin Rookstool (Hon) Cody Webb (Beta)
Others at X Games racers who are actively considering Big Sky: Steward Baylor (KTM) Taylor Robert (Kaw) Gary Sutherlin (Kaw) ...we'll hopefully have more to report in the next couple of weeks.
Also coming: Current GNCC points leader: Paul Whibley (YAM), his teamate Jordan Ashburn. Raines Racing's Brad Bakken JCR Honda's David Kamo JG Honda's Jimmy Jarrett Honda Canada's Jason Schrage last year's winner: Rory Sullivan
Also considering: Josh Strang (KTM) 2010 GNCC champ, current WORCS racer Chris Bach (YAM) GNCC Jason Thomas (KTM) GNCC (just won the Pro XC2 Snowshoe GNCC race)
The Pro race w/ 10k on the line will be extremely exciting. Throw in our local heros, Cameron Weaver and Mike Slawson, and it's going to be a fun 3-4 hours of racing.
Tons of other race classes to sign up for. National level racing from 50cc up to 60 yrs old. The youth/novice courses have been upgraded again this year. It's a great weekend!
Even if you don't make the trip to Big Sky Resort to race, you'll want to attend the Sunday afternoon (12:30pm start time) race to check our the nation's top off road racers right here in Montana.
