World Supremacy for Team Arctic Racing

CBR's Ryan Simons won the USCC Oslo 100 aboard his Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600

Press Release-

TEAM ARCTIC MATCHES WORLD SNOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP WITH CROSS-COUNTRY SUPREMACY

Tucker Hibbert Takes World Championship Title;

Team Arctic Racers Score 15 Wins in USCC Cross-Country

It was a weekend of worldwide domination for Team Arctic racers and the ProCross chassis-based Arctic Cat Sno Pro.

At the FIM Snocross World Championships in Semigorje, Russia, Tucker Hibbert once again proved he’s the best in the world. A three-final format pitted Hibbert against an international field of 33 racers from six different countries in front of 12,000 fans. A first-turn mishap in the first final prevented Hibbert from taking the win, however, he backed up that second-place finish with two convincing wins in the remaining finals to secure his second World Championship title in three years.

On this side of the Atlantic, Team Arctic cross-country racers delivered a supremely-dominant performance, taking 15 wins (out of 20 classes) at the USCC Oslo 100 cross-country in Oslo, Minn., where ample snow provided a rough, genuine cross-country that combined ditch and river.

Defending USCC Pro Champion Ryan Simons scored his first win of the season, while simultaneously underlining the depth of the Christian Bros. Racing team that has now scored three Pro 600 wins with three different racers. Simons’ greatest challenge of the weekend appeared to come from his CBR teammate D.J. Ekre, who claimed the Pro Open class early in the day and was on pace for a top finish in Pro 600 until an untimely crash took him out of contention.

Of the 15 class wins at Oslo, eight were full podium-sweeps by Team Arctic racers, underscoring the team’s depth as well as the strength of the Sno Pro 600 and Sno Pro 500 race machines.

“This was another exciting weekend for Arctic Cat,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Tucker Hibbert’s World Championship title is proof that he is the fastest snocross racer in the world. And the 15-victory performance at the USCC cross-country in Oslo confirms that it’s tough to beat great racers piloting great snowmobiles.”

How many more years before skodio figures out how to set up clutches , seriously did you see the belt temps ! This has been a problem with skodio for 20 years , can't you find one guy in Canada to figure this out ? Don't tell me it's the horse power of the new motor because your 670 and 700 summits were even worse , and no other manf. Has this problem , if you can fix this problem skodio will rule the roost !!!!

Yeah, my auto teacher used to be a pro racer; a very exlceelnt one, and he said whenever he test drove cars for Ford, he'd thrash their cars around not caring cause its not his car. But whenever he raced his car, he always drove a small more careful. http://khcuxptwwv.com [url=http://vwdjcjuayui.com]vwdjcjuayui[/url] [link=http://jdmdtjvwc.com]jdmdtjvwc[/link]

I'm puzzled. If the prnicitdoes are not the reason for motivating action, what is? Isn't the entire program built on prnicitdoes of future disasters? Regarding "whiplash," I'm not clear on the concept. Whiplash implies being snapped back and forth dramatically. The problem isn't whiplash, it's the "me-to-ism" that requires more and more extreme claims to get attention. This comes out of groupthink, and a confidence that no one will call you out as you leave reality. The only whiplash involved is in those rare times when the wacko claims are called out publicly and exposed to ridicule. http://jckssehst.com [url=http://hjosmpihgr.com]hjosmpihgr[/url] [link=http://esonsnxvhx.com]esonsnxvhx[/link]
