2010 GNCC Bike Proposed Pro Rules

Sunday, November 29, 2009
Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, has announced the proposed rules for the 2010 tour in the XC1 and XC2 pro classes.
Grand National Cross Country Racing

These proposed pro rules are tentative, and will not be finalized until the GNCC Rider Meetings that follow the GNCC Awards Banquet on December 4-5. This allows the GNCC community time to view the rules and allow for a public comment period.

The most significant proposals highlighted are for the bike classes. Racer Productions has established a minimum age requirement that will be implemented over a one-year grace period. The 2010 minimum age requirement for the XC2 Pro Lites class will be 15 years old and 17 years old for the XC1 Class. In 2011, these ages will increase to 16 and 18 years old for the respective classes.

The second proposal for bikes allows the use of 250 two-strokes in the XC2 Pro Lites Class. This change is consistent with the AMA Amateur Racing Rulebook.

The proposed rules can be viewed by clicking here.

After the banquet rider's meeting the tentative amateur rules will be posted for public comment as well.

To provide suggestions or comment on the proposed rules, please email Technical Manager Jeff Canfield at Jcanfield@gnccracing.com. Jeff Canfield, Race Director for MX Sports Pro Racing, has been recently assigned to the position of Technical Manager for GNCC Racing.

The 2010 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series begins with the West Gate River Ranch GNCC in River Ranch, Florida, which runs February 27 through March 2, as part of Bike Week.

This is similar to what everyone got worked up about in pro mx/sx a year or so ago. On one hand it would help bring back 2-strokes, but on the other hand the companies won't like that their popular 250 4-strokes won't be the main highlight anymore. It could also encourage the introduction of larger displacement 2-strokes for the xc1 class. I wonder if there is a limit on the displacement for 2-strokes in xc1? I know they race 300s in it sometimes.
