Morgantown, W. Va. (June 1, 2011) – The Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series is happy to announce the return of GNCC University (GNCC U) to the Snowshoe Campus June 22-24, in conjunction with the Snowshoe GNCC June 25 and 26.

GNCC_racingLed by Dean of motorcycles, 7-Time AMA National Enduro Champion Randy Hawkins, this year’s bike instructors include 5-Time AMA National Hare Scramble Champion Jason Raines, 2009 XC1 Champion Paul Whibley, 3-Time GNCC Champion Thad Duvall, Jordon Milbauer and Jordan Ashburn.

Dean of ATVs, 9-Time GNCC Champion Bill Ballance, will lead this year’s ATV instructors, including current XC2 points leader Walker Fowler, Taylor Kiser, 7-Time GNCC Champion Traci Cecco and Johnny Gallagher.

The panel of professional instructors will head several groups of students according to bike size and riding level to ensure each student is learning with a group similar to his/her riding ability. Students will learn proper navigation of up hills, down hills, grass tracks, woods, rocks and mud, as well as how to handle competitive starts. Students will also participate in lectures about sportsmanship, training, nutrition and mental preparation.

“We are excited to showcase our riders and their talents on top of helping other riders achieve their goals – whether that includes winning the C class or the Pro class, bikes or ATVs, there’s something for everyone here at GNCC U,” said Dean of bikes Randy Hawkins. “We’re just happy to give back to the sport that has allowed us all to enjoy what we’re doing every day,” Hawkins added.

GNCC University is in session from June 22-24, 2011. Tuition, Room & Board is less than $400 per student. Registration is now open through Snowshoe Mountain Resort. To reserve a spot, call the office at 877-441-4386.
