Team Shenandoah Honda / USWE-Sports.com River Ranch Race Report

GNCC - Polk County, FL

The highly anticipated start of the GNCC season took place at the River Ranch Resort in Florida on Tuesday. Many riders have been getting them self prepared for the season by riding in Florida leading up to the event, so did Team Shenandoah Honda/USWE-sports.com’s rider Thad Duvall. Lots of work was put in to pick the right Dunlop tire, the best WER suspension settings and in general preparing a solid bike that would with stand a grueling three hours whopped out track. Some rain before the event made the race dust free with some minor mud holes. After a mid pack start, Thad Duvall made steady progress resulting in a fifth place after two laps. In a heavy battle with Josh Strang, Duvall was able to pass him for fourth.

Shortly after this the Troy Lee Design supported rider had a hard get off, resulting in a brushed body, unable to really push hard to fight Whibley and Strang for third. First and second place Mullins and Russell were to far ahead in a battle by themselves. At the end of the day, Duvall finish in 5th place. A solid performance for the GNCC opener, something to build on for the second round in Georgia this Sunday.
