FMF Racing Sweeps Top Five at Ohio GNCC

In one of the muddiest and most demanding Can-Am Grand National Cross Country race ever held, FMF Racing rose to the top. FMF Suzuki’s Paul Whibley made a pass on his teammate Josh Strang on the last lap to take the win at the Ohio GNCC, while Jimmy Jarrett rounded off a podium sweep for the FMF Suzuki team.

FMF and KTM Racing’s David Knight mounted a charge toward the lead and eventually caught up to second place; however water and mud seeped into his airbox stalling his KTM. Knight would eventually have to pit for a new filter and finished a respectable fourth place, while FMF’s Jason Raines finished fifth.

In the XC2 class, Raines teammate and FMF’s own Thad Duvall took another win, his fifth of the season.

All of these riders raced with FMF Racings Factory 4.1 exhausts, which proved to be the most durable and best performing pipe under such grueling conditions. For more information on FMF Products please visit
