Washington, Ga.- The third round of the Grand National Cross Country Series took
place at The General GNCC over the weekend, where Babbitt’s Online/Monster
Energy®/Kawasaki Team Green riders Grant Baylor and Lyndon Snodgrass battled
through the sticky Georgia mud to claim eighth and 11th, respectively, in the premier
XC-1 pro class.


The Georgia GNCC is always known for its treacherous mud bogs, and this year was no
exception, with several inches of rain falling on course before the weekend of racing
had even begun. At the start of the abbreviated 2-hour race, both team riders would
suffer from dismal starts, forcing them to work their way through the field in subpar
conditions. At the end of the first lap of racing, Snodgrass would cross the line in the
sixth-place position, with Baylor in the 12th-place position. As the race unfolded, both
riders would find themselves buried in the Georgia mud, causing both to miss out on
continuing their success from the previous rounds. Baylor would pull himself out of the
mud to claim eighth on the day, and Snodgrass would take home 11th place in class.


Both riders won't have long to seek redemption, as the fourth round of the GNCC series
will take place in two weeks on March 24th at the Camp Coker GNCC in Society Hill,
South Carolina, where Grant Baylor took last years overall win.
