KYMCO Maxxer 375 Gives Kyle Golding First Place @ GNCC ATV event
Kyle Golding, a 16-year-old SC native, pull ed out a first place finish riding a KYMCO Maxxer 375 in the Yadkin Valley Stomp ATV GNCC Race. This win follows two back-to-back third place finishes in two previous GNCC ATV races and puts him in fourth place in his class overall. Golding’s rise to fourth place in the 4x4 Lites class is even more impressive when you realize that he did not even participate in the first three races of the series.
The Yadkin Valley Stomp is held in Yadkinville , NC , which is wine country. The name of this event comes from its roots in wine – you stomp on the grapes to make wine. This track is very tight and is very unforgiving. Racers ne ed a good start and cannot make any mistakes to do well here. The track features a large water section and a large tunnel for the riders, making it a fun venue for spectators as well.
However, this ATV track work ed well for Golding and his break-through ATV race. He won with a last-lap pass, ending the 4x4 Lites points leader, Kevin Trantham’s five-race winning streak.
Al Golding, KYMCO USA ’s Accessories Manager and Kyle’s father was on site in Yadkinville to provide support and cheer his son on. “Kyle has been riding ATVs since he was eight years old and has been racing for five years. The whole family rides, but Kyle really has a special talent for the sport. And he loves the mud!”
The Maxxer 375 is a good fit for Golding in the 4x4 Lites class, which is made up of 201-560cc ATVs. While it is not the most powerful in the class, its performance and agility give it the ed ge necessary to be a winner.
