Brycen Neal Wins GNCC Season Kick-off in First Race Back after Injury

Brycen Neal Wins GNCC Season Kick-off in First Race Back after Injury

After a devastating knee injury kept him away from racing for more than eight months, Brycen Neal’s return to the GNCC alone would have been reason to celebrate. But in a scenario straight out of a movie, Neal took the victory at that first race, winning the VP Racing Fuels Big Buck GNCC Round 1 in Union South Carolina.


Fifth away from the starting line, Neal worked his way to third by the third lap, with only .4 seconds separating him from the front runners. Riding neck-and-neck with the other riders for most of the final lap, Neal gained an advantage in the final corners to take the win.


Neal’s injury at a GNCC race in May 2021 required surgery the following month to repair his ACL and meniscus, and his Instagram post after the race reflected his joy at getting back to competition. “Words can barely describe this one. After eight and a half months off of racing, I’m so pumped to grab the win at my first GNCC race back! It’s been such a long grind to get back to this point to compete. But I’m excited for the weeks ahead to get back to work and improve,” he said. “After not racing for that long I made some silly mistakes and I’m still not where I want to be, but I’m just so dang happy to be racing again! I appreciate the love and support of everyone. It was so great to see everybody at the races again! Onto the next one.”


He was almost as thrilled with his CST tires. “Couldn’t have done it today without my Pulse HTs!” said Neal. The Pulse HT was designed with input from CST’s athletes and is versatile enough to hook up in almost any terrain.


The next GNCC Presented by Specialized race, the Moose Racing Wild Boar, is scheduled for March 5-6 in Palatka, Florida.

Baron, Neal Take Fans Along as They Race Maxxis PVD Racing Endurance Moto


CST’s sponsored riders Beau Baron and Brycen Neal are primed and ready to face world-class competition in the Pont de Vaux Maxxis Mondial du Quad, or Maxxis 12-Hour PVD Racing Endurance Moto. The grueling race begins this week, running from August 23 through the 26th in Pont de Vaux, France.

Starting Tuesday, August 21, the two are also taking over CST’s Instagram account to let fans in on both the fun and the intense last-minute prep for the race. Both riders are having a banner year: Baron currently leads WORCS’ Pro class in points, and Neal ranks third in points for the GNCC’s XC1 Pro class.

In a surprising last-minute development, the Maxxis 12-Hour PVD Racing Endurance Moto has been made even more challenging for the two CST riders. The third member of the team, Maxxis’ Jarrod McClure, suffered a broken collarbone and as a result, Baron and Neal will be riding six hours each. CST wishes Jarrod McClure a swift recovery and looks forward to seeing him back in the action soon.

 Be sure to visit CST on Instagram to catch all the action as CST’s finest take on the Maxxis 12-Hour PVD Racing Endurance Moto!
