Sno-Dak News - - Ski-Doo Bulletin -

Thief River Falls, Minn. (Dec. 2, 2014) – If there were any ques­tions about which brand would reign supreme at the 2014-2015 ISOC Na­tional Snocross opener in Du­luth, Minn., Team Arc­tic de­liv­ered a re­sound­ing an­swer: We’re the ones to beat! It was an an­swer that echoed among the 20,000 race fans atop Spirit Moun­tain who wit­nessed Team Green vic­tory in 8 of 15 classes, as well as 20 out of 45 pos­si­ble podium fin­ishes.

Lead­ing the charge for the be­gin­ning of his 15th sea­son atop the Pro cat­e­gory was Tucker Hib­bert, who stomped his par­tic­u­lar brand of author­ity on the pre­mier class with wins in ev­ery heat and both Pro Open fi­nals to notch his 96th and 97th ca­reer vic­to­ries. David Joa­nis and Lo­gan Chris­tian also de­liv­ered in­spired per­for­mances in the pre­mier class, set­ting the stage for a strong sea­son.

Mon­tana Jess re­turned to com­pe­ti­tion for the first time since suf­fer­ing what was nearly a ca­reer-end­ing hand in­jury last sea­son, tak­ing an emo­tional win in the Sport fi­nal. Other Team Arc­tic class win­ners at Du­luth in­cluded Lee But­ler in ProAm Plus 30, Trent Wit­twer and Colin Kernz in the Am­a­teur classes, Car­son Al­read in Ju­nior Novice, and An­son Scheele in Tran­si­tion.

“With the ta­lented rac­ers and me­chan­ics on our team matched by the more po­tent 2015 ZR6000R SX in the ProCross chas­sis, we ex­pected to do well at the sea­son opener,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arc­tic Race Man­ager, “But you never know un­til it all plays out. To win more than half of the classes while tak­ing 45 per­cent of the podium places proves that we are the ones to beat for the 2015 sea­son. We’re proud of all the Team Arc­tic rac­ers, crew and fans who made Du­luth the per­fect sea­son opener.”

The next stop on the 2015 ISOC Na­tional tour is Dec. 12-13, 2014, in Fargo, ND.
