No Loretta Lynn’s For GNCC

Cycle News Staff | January 9, 2013

Loretta Lynn’s Rance, the longest-running venue on the GNCC circuit, has be taken off the schedule for 2013.

“Due to a scheduling conflict, the Loretta Lynn’s venue will not be on the GNCC schedule for 2013,” said GNCC Event Director, Dean VanLeeuwen. “Loretta’s has given us nearly 30 years of good racing and we’re looking forward to possibly returning to the ranch in the future.”

Round 11 of the series will now be held on the property of the RiverStone Estate, one of the largest privately owned mansions in Pennsylvania. The “Gusher” race will take place on over 1200 acres of riverfront property in Foxburg, Pennsylvania., amidst the Allegheny Mountains of Western Pennsylvania.

Although the property lies within the mountains, the terrain is not extreme as one may think. The racecourse will be running through the rolling hills of a previously established 18-hole golf course.

“I’m really excited for this event because of the wide variety of terrain we have to work with,” said Barry Hawk, 8-time GNCC champ and Trail Boss. “We have the opportunity to give racers a good mixture of fast and open sections and then to quickly jump into more technical sections of fresh trail. All in all, the great dirt, elevation change and variation in the woods could potentially make this the most fun GNCC track of the season.”
