Pickens marks the fifth different rider who has claimed the XC1 class MotorcycleUSA ATV GNCC holeshot award.

MotorcycleUSA.com doled out another $250 Holeshot Award for the GNCC XC1 division – this time to Yamaha rider Jeffrey Pickens. The Moose Mountain Ridge GNCC got underway with Pickens getting out front to avoid the mud. Fans would get to see the lead change hands multiple times before the end of the first lap with Pickens slipping back to an eventual eighth-place finish. Chris Borich stayed close to the lead and made a pass during the final lap to snare the win.

HMF’s Brian Wolf took the XC2 $100 MotorcycleUSA.com holeshot award and got off to a great start until problems occurred and forced him to fall back. With Wolfe out the way it allowed Walker Fowler to charge from far behind and take the win.

Brian Wolf won the XC2 MotoUSA Holeshot Award  - Moose Mountain Ridge GNCC.
