Amherst, OH- KTM Motorsports, Inc. and Farr Racing Enterprises (FRE) are proud to announce the 2008 Pro ATV GNCC Team with new recruits Adam McGill and Taylor Kiser.
West Virginia’s Adam McGill, 2005 ATVA Amateur Rider of the Year and 2005 Most Improved GNCC Rider of the Year, is excited to ride for a factory team in 2008. “I feel that KTM will be a good fit for me, they offer excellent support and I admire how the company presents themselves on a professional level. I am also thrilled to work with Tim (Farr) because after winning multiple Pro ATV Championships I know I can learn a lot from him,” stated McGill. McGill has been racing professionally for two years and currently sits 5th in the ATV GNCC points with two rounds remaining.
McGill’s friend and competitor Taylor Kiser (who sits 6th right behind McGill in points) will be the second half of the two-man team. “I’m glad Adam signed on, I know there will never be a dull moment,” stated Kiser after hearing McGill signed. Kiser ranked 5th in the Pro-Am (XC-2) class last year and is now currently competing in his first year as a Pro (XC-1) rider. In only his third year racing GNCC events Kiser is elated to ride for a factory team, “I’ve had a chance to ride the KTM and it is a strong bike that I know can run up front. I know KTM has a strong background in the off-road motorcycle segment and I feel confident that will carry over in the ATV off-road side as well.”
KTM North America, Inc. unveiled its new 2008 KTM 450XC and 525XC Sport ATV’s in late August. Since then, KTM rider Tim Farr has won three championships aboard his KTM machine. Farr who signed on to help develop the KTM line of sport ATV’s will also manage the 2008 KTM ATV GNCC Team. Farr has impressed ATV enthusiasts throughout the year after winning the ATVA Extreme Dirt Track Series, NASMOTO ATV Supermoto, and ATV EnduroCross championships. Farr will continue to compete in the Extreme Dirt Track Series as well as other select events next year in addition to overseeing the new GNCC Team.
With the launch of the KTM Sport ATV’s, it was the right time to select a team for the 2008 season. Tim Farr worked closely with Kurt Nicoll, Director of Racing for KTM, to select riders for the 2008 GNCC Team. “I’m pleased to be involved with GNCC Racing and KTM Motorsports, Inc. I truly believe we have signed strong riders in McGill and Kiser, both riders have excellent championship potential in 2008,” stated Farr. Both riders have signed one-year contracts with KTM for the 2008 GNCC Series.
