Maxxis riders came out on top at the inaugural Gusher GNCC, sweeping the ATV Pro podium. Chris Borich earned his fifth consecutive championship title, but Chris Bithell won the overall at Round 11 of the series, held September 21 in Foxburg, Pennsylvania.
Borich started strong, grabbing the holeshot, but Bithell took the lead soon after, powering through the muddy terrain. Borich, along with fellow Maxxis rider Walker Fowler, followed close behind. Bithell held the front spot for the rest of the race, increasing his margin as the contest wore on. “I got off to a bad start, eating mud like crazy, but it turned out great! I knew a lot of those guys like their fresh goggles, and I knew if I could lead I wouldn’t need them. So I took off past them after the first lap in the pits into third place. Just after that I got into the lead, pinned it, and hardly looked back,” said Bithell. “I couldn’t have been any happier on the tires. These were the worst conditions I had ever seen. I didn’t get stuck one time. The quad, setup and tires just worked flawlessly.” Bithell rides Razr rear and Razr2 front tires in all conditions.
