 Press Release-

ONE SNOCROSS GOLD AND 17 CROSS-COUNTRY WINS FOR TEAM ARCTIC

Team Arctic’s Tucker Hibbert Wins 8th Career Gold at ESPN X Games; Team Arctic Cross-Country Scores 17 Wins at USXC in Oslo, Minn.

Team Arctic terrain racers struck gold again, winning the snocross at the ESPN Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo., and taking 17 class wins at the USXC cross-country in Oslo, Minn. The X Games snocross gold once again belonged to Team Arctic/Monster Energy pro Tucker Hibbert, the winningest snocross racer in history and the first X Games athlete to win seven back-to-back gold medals. Hibbert dominated the snocross event from start to finish, winning by 13 seconds over second place to claim his eighth career gold and 12th career medal at the prestigious event.

“To win the X Games gold medal seven years in a row is an accomplishment that’s beyond words,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Tucker and his team dedicate themselves to winning this race, with untold hours of testing and practice. Tucker’s wins have elevated the sport of snocross while making him a genuine living legend among action sports athletes.”

Kloety also added, “In addition to winning gold at the ESPN X Games, Team Arctic placed four other pros in the snocross final with Dave Joanis, Cody Thomsen, Mike Bauer and Logan Christian. Chris Heppding took sixth in the Snocross Adaptive final; Cory Davis finished second in the Long Jump and sixth in Freestyle; and Willie Elam took seventh in freestyle.”

Team Arctic cross-country racers delivered their own gold medal-winning weekend, capturing the win in 17 of 21 finals at the first ditch event of the season in USXC. Zach Herfindahl led the victory march with a solid win in the Pro Stock class. After suffering a DNF while leading the Pro Open final – the result of a rock puncturing his sled’s heat exchanger – Herfindahl raced the stock class on the sled of his Christian Brothers Racing teammate Ryan Simons. Simons finished second in the Open class and would have been in contention to win the Stock class had he not graciously offered his sled to Herfindahl, who leads the point chase. 

Timmy Kallock waited for the ditch races to start his season, and it paid off with his sweep of the Semi Pro Stock and Improved classes. Other double winners included Jon Arneson (Super Stock and Masters 40 Plus) and Hunter Houle (Sport 85 and Junior 14-17). Team Arctic racers swept eight class podiums while garnering 43 of 63 possible podium places.

“As the first multi-terrain race of the season, Oslo brought added anticipation along with some new names to the front of the pack, which added extra excitement,” said Kloety. “The results prove that our machines and racers are as good in the rough ditch as they are on the lake courses. The team will be ready for the I-500 beginning Feb. 6.”

Good jiob for all AC racers and their respective teams. I found the 2014 X Games snocross a little boring then the 2013 xgames. Last years track was IMHO, faster and it was bigger for sure. But hey TH still kicked butt. Now it's off to Deadwood today for another AC schooling.
