Val­court, QC De­cem­ber 1, 2014 Ski-Doo X Team rid­ers opened the snocross sea­son in Du­luth, MN at the ISOC sea­son opener in win­ning fash­ion with Tim Trem­blay of Scheur­ing Speed Sports cap­tur­ing his sec­ond straight $10,000 prize at the Fri­day night Dom­i­na­tor race. The an­nual Spirit Moun­tain race is al­ways a high en­ergy af­fair as snocross rac­ers gather from across North Amer­ica, on what is the U.S. Thanks­giv­ing week­end, for their first taste of com­pe­ti­tion. Tim Trem­blay with the $10,000 win­ner’s check af­ter beat­ing all chal­lengers in the head-to- head Dom­i­na­tor race. On Satur­day, Makita/GMC/NSK/Warn­ert Rac­ing rider Elias Ishoel stole the spot­light, win­ning his first ever Pro Lite main event. Ishoel is a 16 year-old racer from Nor­way who was sched­uled to com­pete in the first three rounds of ISOC na­tional snocross com­pe­ti­tion. His im­pres­sive rides through­out the week­end might have al­tered plans for the re­main­der of his win­ter. De­spite be­ing in­volved in a first lap pile up on Sun­day that took him out of podium con­tention, he fought back to an ninth place fin­ish with an­other hard charg­ing ride. The big win added to a week­end of ex­cite­ment for the Warn­ert Rac­ing team as, just days prior to the event, they an­nounced a new part­ner­ship with Makita In­dus­trial Power Tools and GMC Trucks. Mar­ica Ren­heim added to the win tally on Sun­day when she scored the Women’s Pro class vic­tory in her first ride of the sea­son for her new team Jimmy John’s/BOSS Rac­ing. Ren­heim, who is the de­fend­ing class cham­pion, made it in­ter­est­ing as she grabbed an early holeshot but then went off course as she raced to the top of the gi­ant up­hill straight. It was only a mat­ter of time, how­ever, be­fore the speedy Swede caught the lead­ers and made her way to the front. In the fi­nal main event of the week­end, young Lin­coln Lemieux of St. Johnsbury, Ver­mont earned his first Pro Open podium with an im­pres­sive ride against the world’s best rac­ers, tak­ing a third place fin­ish on his Scheur­ing Speed Sports sled. Lemieux made his de­but with the team as a fill-in rider for Trem­blay late last sea­son and is off to a great start in his full rookie year. The na­tional snocross se­ries will have a one week break be­fore re­sum­ing ac­tion in Fargo, North Dakota on De­cem­ber 12-13
