ATV Industry Facts: Did You Know?
The kind of diploma you frame in your garage.
We don’t often talk about higher learning around here but after a few year hiatus, Yamaha has decided to bring back Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) University. Hosted before round eight of the 2019 GNCC series at Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia from June 19 to 21, Yamaha is bringing together top off-road racers to instruct in-depth courses on the fundamentals of racing.
A panel of professional instructors will head 80 students in several groups of ATV courses. Students will participate in lectures about sportsmanship, training, proper nutrition, and mental preparation, along with practicing how to tackle hills, grass tracks, woods, rocks, mud, and starts in a competitive setting. Groups will be determined according to bike size and rider skill level to ensure everyone is learning with comparable peers.
Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis with 80 openings evenly split between ATV and motorcycle disciplines. Tuition for GNCC University is $500 per student and includes room, board, and meals. For more details and to register, call the Snowshoe Mountain Resort at 877-441-4386.
