Christian Brothers Racing: X Games Podium & Victory at Oslo


(1/30/2014)

Press Release -

Davis Wins Silver At Winter X, Herfindahl Wins Cross-Country

They were in two different locations on two very different stages, but the results were the same: Christian Brothers Racing riders were on the podium. On the world stage that is the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, Cory Davis flew the CBR colors claiming silver in the Long Jump competition. Logan Christian and Dave Joanis were also at the X Games fighting for a gold medal in X Games snocross. About 1200 miles away in the ditches, rivers and fields of rural Northwestern Minnesota where Arctic Cat snowmobiles were born, Zach Herfindahl claimed a Pro Stock win at the USXC Oslo 100 cross-country race.

 

Cory Davis, Team Arctic Cat & Christian Bros. Racing

Cory Davis - Entered in Freestyle and Long Jump, Cory Davis went big in Long Jump, taking home the silver medal. In long jump riders hit a modified freestyle ramp from a set distance attempting to outfly one another and score the longest distance from each run-in mark. In each round the rider with the shortest distance is eliminated. Davis was one of the final two riders, taking the silver behind a rider who holds the World Record for snowmobile distance jumping.

 

Logan Christian, Team Arctic Cat & Christian Bros. Racing

Logan Christian - After running the 4th fastest lap of the day in seeding, Christian transfered to the Winter X Games snocross final with a second place finish in his heat. The DRIFT Racing/Arctic Cat rider lined up for the main and came out mid-pack off the start, then found himself tangled mid air with another rider just a few seconds into the race. He avoided being run over by oncoming racers and quickly re-mounted the sled, but it was too badly damaged for him to complete the race pace.

 

Dave Joanis, Team Arctic Cat & Christian Bros. Racing

Dave Joanis - After a transfer to the main through the LCQ, Royal Distributing/Arctic Cat rider Dave Joanis rode a solid race finishing in 10th place. It was Joanis’ first time competing in the Winter X Games snocross event.

The Christian Brothers Racing cross-country team traveled to Oslo, Minnesota, to compete in the USXC Oslo 100. This race took the team from the one-dimensional lake races that made up the first three events into a multi-dimensional, terrain-oriented format that featured high-speed road ditches, twisting rivers and tight woods. Pro Stock points leader Zach Herfindahl was joined by 2013 USXC Pro Stock points champion Ryan Simons and long-time Christian Brothers Racing rider and multi-time cross-country Pro points champion D.J. Ekre.

 

Zach Herfindahl, Team Arctic Cat & Christian Bros. Racing

Zach Herfindahl - After losing an engine in the 50-mile Pro Open race, the CBR crew discovered a punctured engine cooler on his snowmobile, likely from a rock that got thrown into the tunnel by the snowmobile’s track.  Herfindahl is the current Pro Stock points leader so teammate Ryan Simons, who isn’t vying for points this season, donated his sled to Zach’s cause and he used to to win the 100-mile Pro Stock race by over 2-minutes.

 

Ryan Simons, Team Arctic Cat & Christian Bros. Racing

Ryan Simons - After sitting out the first three rounds, reigning Pro Stock point champion and Seven Clans I-500 winner Ryan Simons returned to competition at Oslo. Simons was able to claim a second place podium finish in the 50-mile Pro Open race, finishing just 32-seconds behind the winner.

D.J. Ekre - A serious crash at last year’s Detroit Lakes race resulted in a broken pelvis and a ruined season for D.J. Ekre. One of the fastest cross-country riders in the world, Ekre was on hand to race the Oslo event but a bad crash in Pro Open tweaked his shoulder and ended his day.

 

Evan Christian, Team Arctic Cat & Christian Bros. Racing

Also competing this past weekend was Junior Novice 10-13 rider Evan Christian. Christian was at the ISOC Regional race at ERX Motor Park in Elk River, Minnesota, where he went undefeated in Junior Novice 10-13 Limited and Junior Novice 10-13 Combined on the weekend, winning all his heats and four mains on his way to a perfect weekend.

Quotes

Cory Davis: “I’m so stoked on winning Silver in the Long Jump. In the end I was just inches away from beating the world record distance jump holder - I’m pretty happy about that.”

Logan Christian:  “I took second in my first heat and felt great. The altitude here is part of the battle and they don’t give you much time to rest between races but I was feeling really good headed into the final. I had a good start but then got tangled up with another rider on the uphill rhythm section and got pitched. I came off the sled and I feel pretty lucky to walk away because there were a lot of sleds behind me. I have to thank our mechanics, Betsy Haldorson, Ethan Hanson and Mike Carver - they worked really hard to get us up front.”

Dave Joanis: “This was my second time racing the Winter X Games snocross. After the practice I felt good but in the first heat I got mixed up with some other riders and ended up having to transfer through the LCQ. I didn’t get a good start and it’s tough to make up ground on that track, but this is the super bowl of snocross and considering that, 10th place is a solid finish.”

Zach Herfindahl: “I had a rock puncture my heat exchanger so Ryan let me borrow his sled for Pro Stock which was really awesome of him. I rode smooth and fast and never made a mistake. I went faster as the race went on and just had a blast - so fun to get on some real terrain after all the ice racing we’ve been doing.”

I'm not saying that Raf is a bad dsengier. he is one of the best dsengiers and is huge inspiration for me. but he is working for Dior and Dior started as a house that made cloths that? were extravagant and fun. i just think it would be more appropriate to design collections based on the spirit of the New Look than minimalism

It's really azmaing to see that this is what he did early on in his career. Now he is creating extreme minimalist clothes. If you look above, the individual pieces he made look quite maverick. Now he's on a cosmos of taking traditional to the extreme. It's definitely a sign that younger designers see him as an iconoclast. http://xovwicopcdz.com [url=http://mtuqmyugp.com]mtuqmyugp[/url] [link=http://hyddyjrvki.com]hyddyjrvki[/link]
