Josh Toth is killing GNCC XC2 on a YZ250FX !

Recommended Posts

Josh Toth has won 5 of 5 GNCC races in the XC2 class on a YZ250FX.   He is being coached by none other than Randy Hawkins, team manager for Yamaha and Paul Whibley, two time GNCC XC1 winner on Yamaha 450Fs.   Paul is from Australia.    

Josh was also the best US club rider at the 2016 ISDE.  He rode a KTM there because he had shipped it over before he signed his deal with Yamaha.

I think it is really, really cool that Yamaha runs a team like this.  I know it is nowhere what KTM does, but it is still cool. 

Another cool fact: Paul Whibley races the XC3 (125cc 2 stroke) class for the fun of it these days.  Talk about a trainer putting his money where his mouth is.  He ran 3 races, placing 2 and 3rds. 

Josh is running plate #206 in the GNCC series.   Paul is plate #99.
