Neal Takes Second GNCC XC1 Pro Championship on CST HT Pulse Tires


Brycen Neal has done it again! Just like last year, he clinched his GNCC championship on CST’s Pulse HT tires. Neal locked down his title at the Kanati Tires GNCC Buckwheat 100, the next-to-last race on this year’s Progressive GNCC schedule.

A mechanical issue added some drama to his run: Neal made a pass and took the lead in the second lap until the problem sidelined him for several minutes. He and his team patched things up, and he went on to take 9th in XC1 Pro and 12th overall. His finish upped his year-to-date total to 266, giving him a 36-point lead and sealing his second straight championship.

“Mannnn what a day! Grabbed a great start and jumped into the lead on lap 1 and was able to get a gap and I was absolutely feeling awesome out there all day! Super bummed not to be able to finish that last lap ride in and bring home a win, we suffered a electrical problem but was able to scramble and get the bike back going again and make it to the finish to clinch the championship!! A BIG THANK YOU to all my sponsors and crew who keeps me going!” Neal said on Instagram.   

Neal isn’t the only CST-sponsored athlete to win it all in a major series this year. Joel Hetrick took his fourth AMA Pro Racing AMT MX championship (his second on CST tires) this summer, and Beau Baron went into his final WORCS race this past weekend on track to take his next title.

CST is proud to be the tire of choice for ATV champions.
