At this very moment, a handful of Team Arctic racers are out west, pounding their bodies into shape for the soon-to-start race season.
Monster Energy racer and McDonalds Happy Meal consumer, Tucker Hibbert, took some pix and sent us some notes from the trip so far.
In Tucker’s words-
Here are some pics from our test/practice session. Sorry I can’t provide more detail, but I am standing by a window holding my computer up to get internet and typing one-handed. Skills!
The riders that are here getting ready for this season’s battles are:
We had to chain-up the truck to make it up to our parking spot.
Kirk is an experienced truck chain installer…
… snocross tuner…
… and fire-builder.
Kirk wants to know why John Sandberg isn’t taking these pics.
Paul Bauerly is an awesome sandwich maker and Sportech’s/Arctic Cat’s promising new pro racer.
Wes Selby is trying to convince Kirk to switch gloves so they would match his helmet. Even though Kirk is colorblind, he declined.
I am pumped about my dad’s boy scout fire skills…and to be back on the snow pounding laps. We are getting some great riding and the sleds are working awesome. I will get some riding shots tomorrow.
