Complete 2005 season for bikes and quads available, includes year-in-review DVD
An entire season of Suzuki Grand National Cross Country action can be sitting under your tree this Christmas, as Racer Productions and Gear Media and Marketing have completed the 2005 season of GNCC Racing on DVD.
The set includes 13 races of either bikes or ATVs, with over 90 minutes of coverage from each race, including pros and amateurs. That’s 20 hours of hardcore GNCC coverage, plus a special Year in Review DVD that made its debut at the GNCC Banquets. The entire package, 13 races plus the Year in Review, is available for $249.99. Order at www.mototees.com or call 888-360-9988.
If you already have a part of the DVD collection, each race is now available for $24.95 each. But if you buy the full set, you pay for 10 and get three discs free, plus the Year in Review. The Year in Review DVD contains highlights from each pro round and a special look at 2005 Champions Bill Ballance (on the ATV YiR DVD) and Juha Salminen (on the Bike YiR DVD). There’s even a blooper reel on the disc. The Year in Review DVD costs $19.95, but it’s free if you buy the whole 13 race set.
Footage on the DVDs uses an expanded format of the GNCC TV Series on the Outdoor Life Network, covering more amateur classes, with commentary from veteran GNCC announcers Rodney Tomblin and Jason Weigandt.
The AMA-sanctioned Suzuki Grand National Cross Country series is America’s premier off-road racing series. The 13-round series is produced exclusively by Racer Productions. Cross-country racing is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world. The nearly three-hour long GNCC races lead as many as 1800 riders through tracks ranging from eight to twelve miles in length. With varied terrain including hills, mud, dirt, rocks and motocross sections, GNCC events are tests of both survival and speed. GNCC featured sponsors include Parts Unlimited, Moose, Maxxis, Pirelli, Wiseco, Klotz, FMF and ITP, and riders compete for over $2.4 million in series prizes and contingency money. Associate sponsors include Moose Utility Division, Scott, Alpinestars, Öhlins, Cometic, Outerwears, Race Tools, Twin Air, SFB Racing, Thor, Motion Pro, MotoTee’s, Warrior and Laeger’s.
