Sno-Dak News - - Ski-Doo Bulletin -

Pleas­ant Prairie, WI—The Yamaha Snow­mo­bile Race Team is ex­cited to an­nounce a new shock ab­sorber spon­sor, Elka Sus­pen­sion, Inc. The team will be us­ing Elka’s ul­tra-light­weight Stage 5 coilover shocks on both the cross coun­try and hill­climb cir­cuits. “What we are most im­pressed with is the Elka team’s level of com­mit­ment in help­ing our rac­ers get on the podium,” said Yamaha Snow­mo­bile Prod­uct Man­ager, Rob Pow­ers.

“Our goal in work­ing with the Yamaha Snow­mo­bile Race Team is to push our Stage 5 plat­form de­vel­op­ment even fur­ther in the snow­mo­bile mar­ket. The Stage 5 is a proven win­ning prod­uct in other sports,” said Elka’s Pres­i­dent Martin Lamoureux, him­self an of­froad rac­ing cham­pion. “We know it will be a win­ner in snow­mo­bil­ing as well.” Pa­trick Tel­lier, Elka’s Mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor, added, “We will be con­tin­u­ously de­vel­op­ing and im­prov­ing our prod­ucts with the Yamaha Snow­mo­bile Race Team, then of­fer­ing those prod­ucts to the gen­eral pub­lic so they can have ac­cess to the same high-per­for­mance sus­pen­sion as the fac­tory rid­ers.”

Both race team crew chiefs, Brian Strawsell and Troy John­son, re­cently paid a visit to Elka’s fa­cil­ity out­side of Montreal to meet with the en­gi­neer­ing team and be­gin build­ing shocks.
