MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (April 2, 2013) - After two rounds of racing in the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series, there's no denying four-time champ Chris Borich's sheer domination in the XC1 Pro ATV class. However, the battle for second through tenth place is a lot less predictable with a deep field of talent on this year's front line.Heading into this Saturday's FMF Steele Creek GNCC in Morganton, N.C., Round 3 of the 13-race series, Borich will once again attempt to fend off his competitors in hopes of taking home a third straight win this season. However, it was in North Carolina that Borich experienced his first loss of 2012, which may come into play during Saturday's two-hour competition. AmPro Yamaha's Walker Fowler currently sits in second place as he continues to chase Borich for a win. Fowler has struggled with poor starts in the first two rounds but the 20-year-old has successfully charged his way through the pack to secure two solid podium finishes so far this season.
