STRAIGHT TO THE TOP FOR TEAM ARCTIC AT BEAR LAKE HILLCLIMB

10 Class Wins and Four King Titles at Opening Round of 2014 RMSHA Season

 The 2014 hillclimb race season kicked off with Team Arctic going straight to the top and winning 14 classes at the Bear Lake event in Montpelier, Idaho. Team Arctic racers amassed the 14 wins – including four King titles – while competing aboard a full range of Arctic Cat M Series snowmobiles with the ProClimb chassis.

“There is always a question mark at the first race of the season,” said Al Shimpa, Team Arctic Hillclimb Coordinator. “We know our sleds and racers are ready to go and we’re hoping for some wins, but you never know how they’ll compare with the competition. With 10 class wins and four King titles at Bear Lake, we couldn’t be happier. And the team goes into the next six races with great confidence.”

There were eight different winners aboard Arctic Cat mountain machines, including three racers who each won two separate classes: Todd Tupper, Trace Tupper and Kaycee Balls. Balls won the Queen title at Bear Lake in addition to winning both Women’s Improved Stock and Mod finals, while Trace Tupper captured Semi Pro Improved Stock, Semi Pro Mod and Semi Pro King titles. Kyle Tapio was the fourth King title winner.

Highlighting their comprehensive success at Bear Lake, Team Arctic captured wins in Stock, Improved Stock and Mod categories, as well as wins in two New Members classes.

“It was gratifying to see David McClure win the Improved Stock 700 class and take second in the 600 class with the new Arctic Cat M 6000 Sno Pro with the C-TEC2 600 engine modified by Speedwerx,” said Shimpa. “We’re making great improvements on this modified engine package, with even better things to come at next events.”

The next national events for Team Arctic are the USXC Park Rapids 100 on Feb. 22-23 in Park Rapids, Minn., the ISOC National Snocross in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., Feb. 21-22 and the RMSHA hillclimb in Afton, Wyo. March 1-2.

a.r.-basically, i iced like a fiend, got A.R.T, and used the cold laser daily whenever it flread up. all in all, i think i used the cold laser something like 18 times---once 8 times in a row and the next flare up i used it 10 days in a row. i can't categorically say whether or not you should try to run through an injury. i've had posterior tibialis tendonitis (inside of the shin) pain that has lingered for weeks but was completely possible to run through. the most recent shin pain that i've dealt with (the anterior tibialis) was something i absolutely could not run through---i HAD to take days completely off otherwise it became incredibly inflamed.

tyler-i have a ~3min series of crcuehns, push-ups, and pull-ups that i perform (very) sporadically after some runs depending on energy, motivation, and time spent lolling about in the grass and sun instead of exerting more post-run effort.troy-my stretching is generally even way way more inconsistent and way way less diligent than my core "training". which has most likely led to some chronic hamstring tightness...katrina--just know: i appreciate the irony of you posting here. thanks a lot for the luck. http://utoyzzorg.com [url=http://jfgmafyodhy.com]jfgmafyodhy[/url] [link=http://bzevhtdwscg.com]bzevhtdwscg[/link]
