DIRTWISE/MAXXIS/KLIM TEAM RACE REPORT - GNCC Rd. 5
DirtWise/Maxxis/KLIM Race team rider Jason Thomas continued his great start to the 2015 race season, with a triumphant 1st place finish at Round 5 of the GNCC series, held over the weekend in Indiana.
Aiming for another strong run at the XC2 Championship in 2015, Thomas impressed all by running up front for the first half of the race before putting the hammer down from there to score an easy 3 minute victory. "What a great race it was today! These nasty conditions really suited me as it's exactly the type of riding I did when I was growing up. I crashed off the start, then quickly came through the pack to the lead group by the end of the first lap so I knew right then that I had all of these other guys covered today. I just hung out with the lead group for a few laps and when they all started making mistakes I just picked my pace up and gapped everyone quite easily for a few laps. From there I just cruised the last few laps and brought it home for another victory!".
Thomas now has a healthy 24 point lead in the Championship standings.
