Press Release-

TEAM ARCTIC HILLCLIMBERS START 2012 SEASON ON TOP

Nine Class Victories and Two King Titles aboard M Series Mountain Machines

The 2012 RMSHA hillclimb season started just as it has for years, with Team Arctic men and women claiming the most victories of any brand at the Bear Lake Hillclimb in Montpelier, Idaho. Piloting the formidable M Series snowmobiles, including the new ProClimb chassis, Team Arctic racers won nine of 18 classes, then added two King titles for a final stamp of authority at the first race of the season.

It was the potent combination of the new ProClimb HCR and an experienced crew of racers that dominated the big-engine classes. Kyle Tapio delivered a career-performance by winning 800 Improved, 800 Mod and Open Mod, then topped it off with the Improved King title. Hot on his heels, brother Nels won the 700 Mod final and had enough mojo to overtake Kyle to win the Mod King title.

Arctic Cat racer and M-sled engineer Todd Tupper showed he’s still the man to beat in the Masters classes, winning both Stock and Improved finals aboard his 2012 M800 HCR in the ProClimb chassis.

Other class winners aboard Arctic Cat M machines include Rob Kincaid in 600 Improved; Amy Zollinger in Women’s Improved; and Derek Merritt in RMSHA Stock.

“With the start of a new season and the all-new ProClimb chassis, there were questions about what to expect from the team,” said Al Shimpa, Team Arctic Hillclimb Coordinator. “Winning nine classes and two King titles was a powerful and impressive answer. We have a tremendous team of racers, and our snowmobiles are only going to get better as we get more race experience.”

I just want to say that as a beginner sleeddr I would love to go to a camp & learn to ride better, but to see a company disrespect talented western pro riders that are trying to teach their skills to others is absolutely rude & disgusting! Whoever wrote the statement It seems as if every western rider that has ever appeared in a sledding video is opening or holding a camp. should take a more professional way of showing why they might be the better choice of camps! I find this statement one of the rudest, most unprofessional statements in a long time! I'd like to know why you're specifically targeting western riders?? Pro riders are offering camps all over the world so why are you just putting down western riders for offering to teach their skills?? I know a lot of western riders personally & think every one of them is qualified & have the safety background & unbelievable amounts of talent to deserve teaching their own camps! It's so sad to see the amount of politics & unfriendly competition these talented riders have to go through just to teach others something they love & are very capable of doing! Again extremely rude & unprofessional, it would change my decision of choosing this camp that puts up a statement blatantly insulting only western riders! Crazy rude!

My husband and i ended up being quite glad when Raymond could fiisnh off his reports from your ideas he was given while using the blog. It's not at all simplistic to simply possibly be offering secrets some other people could have been selling. And we realize we have the writer to give thanks to for this. These explanations you have made, the simple blog menu, the relationships you assist to create it's all amazing, and it's making our son and us imagine that this idea is brilliant, and that's quite pressing. Thanks for all the pieces! http://vrnycq.com [url=http://uzlkdyu.com]uzlkdyu[/url] [link=http://qajumfbcowh.com]qajumfbcowh[/link]
