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.
The life of a Team Arctic racer looks brutal. If you ever need someone to keep the Monster Energy drinks stocked in your trailer or something, I would sure free up my schedule to accompany you guys on a trip like this.
GO Paul GO.
where is dan?
I hear that Paul Bauerly is great new addition to the Arctic ranks, with previous experience on other sleds. More info or pictures would be great on your new racer.
Looks like Kirk is training for the Iron Dog again. Maybe?
Damn Kirk those kids just keep workin’ your butt off huh? I hope you keep them all under control? Good luck boys!
Looks like a fun time don,t work that old man to much…
