The Amsoil Championship Snocross Tour kicks off two days of racing this weekend (February 10-11) during the 41st running of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt at the Circuit Yvon Duhamel. With current Pro points leader Elias Ishoel out due to injury (Elias is making great progress after a horrific crash in Deadwood where he suffered a broken femur, fractured elbow, collapsed lung, liver lacerations, broken ribs, and a fractured vertebra.) Cat Pro riders Daniel Benham (currently sitting 9th in points), Jacob Yurk (6th in points and coming off a podium finish), and Pro Lite rider Trent Wittwer (currently 6th in national points) will go to battle in the backyard of Ski-Doo. The Grand Prix represents rounds 7 and 8 of the national tour, which means the teams are approaching the mid-way point of the season. As always, you can catch all the action live on FloRacing (subscription required).
This weekend also marks the kick-off to the Rocky Mountain States Hillclimb Association (RMSHA) season. Qualifying for the Salt Pass Border Dash in Geneva, Idaho took place yesterday and the competition will commence today.
