KTM’s Forsberg Clinches GNCC Women’s Title

2012 GNCC Women’s Championship

Factory FMF/KTM rider Maria Forsberg wrapped up a perfect season remaining undefeated through the first nine rounds of the series to clinch the 2012 GNCC Women’s Championship.

Forsberg’s victory at the John Penton GNCC in Millfield, Ohio, marked her ninth straight win of the season and allowed her to claim her third straight GNCC Women’s class Championship. In typical fashion, Forsberg started strong and led every lap of the Women’s race to take the victory. Forsberg just returned from X-Games 18 in Los Angeles, where she won the Women’s EnduroX Gold Medal for the second consecutive year.

Maria Forsberg says: “It has been a great two weeks. I am so thankful to everyone on the team that has helped me this year. It has truly been a remarkable year and I am so grateful for the success that I have had.”

Forsberg wrapped up the championship with four rounds remaining and plans to change things up a bit in the remaining rounds.

Maria Forsberg says: “I would like to compete in the 250 A class for the remaining rounds and see how I stack up against the men in the 3-hour race. I am looking forward to competing against them and beginning a new challenge for a few races.”

Next Event: September 15-16, 2012 – Unadilla Raceway
