The fourth round of the 2019 Grand National Cross Country Series headed to Society Hill, South Carolina for the Camp Coker Bullet GNCC. This round also marked the second (and final) sand race of the season. Three hours over whooped out sand, mud and roots, is not the most ideal race condition. Mix in a short rain shower immediately after racing started, and the riders were in for a challenging day from start to finish. There was great race action all over the 11.5 mile course, and strong finishes across all classes. The GNCC series resumes in three weeks at Round 5, the X Factor Whitetails GNCC in Peru, Indiana.
