Since the inception of the eMTB GNCC races in 2019, 2011 Pro Bike Grand National Champion Charlie Mullins has taken a hold on the series, earning 15 overall race wins (he won 6 of 7 rounds in 2019, 7 out of 8 rounds in 2020, and the first 2 races in 2021) in the first 17 races. However, at the third round at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana, Mullins was just barely edged out by Nick Mackie—only 0.4 seconds separated them at the finish line—at the Hoosier GNCC eMTB round. In Mackie’s first year racing the series, he has finished 4-2-1 in the first three races he has contested. After three rounds only three points separate Mullins (59 points) and Mackie (56 points).
Check out the highlights from the third round, including a view of the epic battle that came down to the last turn!
