GNCC Racing TV Returns to Versus Network on April 4th

Racer TV, the host program of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, returns to the Versus Network to cover the 2009 GNCC Series this April. The new season will mark the 9th year of GNCC Racing airing on television, and for the first time ever, the GNCC races will be broadcast in High Definition.

All 13 GNCC bike and ATV rounds, 26 races in total, will air on Versus Network in 30-minute episodes. Each race debuts on Saturday afternoon and then re-airs on Tuesday afternoon, with the opening episode airing Saturday, April 4th, at 2:30 p.m. EST and re-airing on Tuesday, April 7th, at 3:30 p.m. EST. That adds up to 26 hours of GNCC Racing on Versus Network, with additional re-airs planned.

This year's television shows will be produced in house by GNCC series' producer Racer Productions, following in the footsteps of the popular Racer X Motocross Show episodes from the AMA Motocross Championships. Jason Hooper, Director of New Media for Racer Productions, spearheads the effort.

"We think year's shows will be cooler, livelier, and more fun than ever," says Hooper, a former motocross and GNCC racer. "Our crew learned a lot from the Racer X Motocross Show, and we'll apply the same principles here: action, fun, personality and cool angles. Plus, the shows will look incredible in HD!"

Jason Weigandt will handle hosting duties for the show. Weigandt, also the host of the AMA Arenacross Series on SPEED, the Supercrosslive! Presented by Parts Unlimited webcast on

The Racer TV production crew includes Mike Holbert, a former GNCC pro-class racer on bikes and ATVs. Holbert has been a part of the GNCC TV team since the shows began airing in 2001. Jeremy Saylor, who produced the GNCC shows for Gear Marketing and Media for the last three seasons, also remains on board.

The Can-Am GNCC Series is the only off-road racing series in America airing weekly cable TV programs. Racer TV sponsors Can-Am, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC and Yamaha have contributed to the 2009 television program.

This year's shows will focus on the battle for the GNCC XC1 and XC2 pro class titles. On ATVs, Yamaha's Bill Ballance aims for an unprecedented 10th-straight GNCC Championship, with contenders such as Chris Borich, Adam McGill, Brandon Sommers, Bryan Cook and William Yokley aiming to knock him off. On Bikes, the wide-open championship field includes Paul Whibley, Josh Strang, Nathan Kanney, Charlie Mullins, Jimmy Jarrett, Kurt Caselli, Barry Hawk and Thad DuVall.
