Hibbert Wins Sixth X Games Gold


(1/31/2011)

Hibbert at X Games by John Hanson

Press Release -

SIXTH X GAMES GOLD FOR TUCKER HIBBERT

Fifth Gold in a Row for Hibbert; Silver Medal for Jeff Tweet

Team Arctic superstar Tucker Hibbert claimed his sixth Gold Medal at the ESPN Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo., with another dominant display of snocross supremacy. It was Hibbert’s fifth consecutive gold medal and his 10th medal in 12 years. His teammate and mechanic Jeff Tweet was equally impressive, finishing with a silver medal in the Adaptive Snocross final.

Racing his Monster Energy Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600 with a Speedwerx modified motor and clutching package, Hibbert combined strong holeshots with his typical blazing speed and control to convincingly win his heat race and final. The only drama happened on the first lap of the final, when one competitor jumped the start and another partially landed on Hibbert before veering off the track.

Hibbert shrugged off both incidents, took the lead threw down a series of fast laps before cruising to an unchallenged win. The victory moved Hibbert past Blair Morgan on the all-time win list.

“This win feels amazing. Every win is special but this one means a lot to me. Beating Blair’s record for most snocross gold medals is really exciting, but I have to thank him for setting the bar high. He helped make me the competitor I am today and I really wish we were still battling on the track.”

Factory Team Arctic Semi-Pro Kyle Pallin finish an impressive fourth place in the final, leading a team green charge that included Dan Ebert (fifth), Cody Thomsen (sixth) Zach Pattyn (seventh) and Johan Lidman in tenth.

Jeff Tweet’s silver-medal in Adaptive Snocross was sweet retribution after breaking his leg in last year’s Adaptive race. Tweet (above) double-jumped his way through the final technical section of the course to pass into second-place, and his first X Games medal.

Your dedication and preparation make your winning look way too easy for most people to appreciate.
Don't back off until you retire (perish the thought!).

unfortunately,most will never see a snox race in person and will never see for themselves what a great show these guys put on.... My good friend and riding buddy Jed Copham owns and operates Brainerd International Raceway and he was kind enough to spend a tremendous amount of money to open his facility for a couple years to showcase this talent and I was fortunate enough to see Tucker Hibbert and Blair Morgan in action and have also watched other talented riders like Paul Thatcher and Dan Ebert just to name a few, work there magic...

meant to say Thacker...lol

But anyways, BIR had to get out of it, the cost was just too much.. sucks because it was cool having a local track to practice on but the cost of groooming it every day and making snow,etc.. was too much. I believe Levi LaValle bought the snow making equipment!!!!

outdone by an American gold rush in the pool. After day 7, the Chinese Olympic team really need to Try their Bestto to Pursuit Every Medal. Otherwise, they may lose the No. 1 in the http://kunqkgeans.com [url=http://oomcpaqplqt.com]oomcpaqplqt[/url] [link=http://kfguekpav.com]kfguekpav[/link]

Takashi, it will be great to have you and the family at the next Bike Party. Bike Party can be a fun sehrad family experience.The only problem is that fireworks are not allowed at Bike Party. Too many things could go wrong that could potentially hurt one or more innocent bicyclists. The law of unintended consequences could turn your family-fun, Bike Party experience into a horror show. That person with fireworks last night broke a SJBP rule, plus; he risked being arrested by the police. You don't need that kind of trouble.So please bring the family, but lose the fireworks; that way you are almost guaranteed a safe, legal and fun night out. http://wbbjfzmopn.com [url=http://jethjbl.com]jethjbl[/url] [link=http://ryuexdoqspa.com]ryuexdoqspa[/link]

It was my first time joining SJbikeparty. I just weantd to say that I had an awesome time! It was such a rush to be be part of this large group ride. I was out getting a bite to eat one night and noticed the huge group of bikes riding by. I came home and jumped on the internet to find what it was all about. I was glad I found the group. My bike had been collecting dust for a few years. This motivated me to get my bike down and join in. What better place can you be then with a great bunch of people riding your bike and getting a free concert with all the varieties of music carts riding by bumping the tunes . I'll definitely be joining the next ride.

Really, great experience, best soacil ride ever! I had my three teenage sons with me (all of us on recumbents) and the crowd couldn't have been friendlier, police and traffic were supportive, and a general nice atmosphere all the way around. We even thought it was a nice, slow pace. AND it was remarkably well organized whenever it seemed that there might be an issue, a volunteer appeared to bark out guidance for all. Even the Mary St. Bridge walkover turned out to be soacil and cool. Thanks so much for this we'll definitely be back! http://oyrchvste.com [url=http://ssycux.com]ssycux[/url] [link=http://hguznotroe.com]hguznotroe[/link]

Great points Chad! I hope Mr. Takashi is just a jeestr who is tweaking our noses by his outrageous statements.But if by chance he is serious about his fireworks, I would advise that he stop in his tracks or, he risks terrorizing, and severely harming his children, with permanent phantasmagoric images of their DAD being led away in handcuffs by the police from Bike Party.Please bear in mind Mr. Takash that: He who rides tiger must be wary lest he ends up inside tiger http://cgeeyfn.com [url=http://sfojglzb.com]sfojglzb[/url] [link=http://lvjpwkz.com]lvjpwkz[/link]
