Duluth, MN – With a podium sweep in the final race of the day, BRP’s Ski-Doo X-Team racers completed a performance that was nothing short of dominant at the ISOC snocross series opener in Duluth, Minnesota. There were four Pro and Pro Lite classes up for grabs and Ski-Doo racers took wins in all of them.
Robbie Malinoski had a phenomenal weekend as he led the Ski-Doo/Scheuring Speed Sports podium sweep in Pro Open Sunday afternoon, adding to his Saturday night win and establishing a substantial points lead. Having a great weekend of his own was defending Champion Tim Tremblay who claimed a 3rd on Saturday and 2nd on Sunday with rock solid rides every time he hit the racetrack. Completing the Sunday sweep was Darrin Mees, who claimed his first Pro podium in 3rd, backing up an 8th place run on Saturday. Everyone suspected the Scheuring Speed Sports team would be tough and saw the potential for a podium sweep, but most wouldn’t have expected it so early in the season – congrats guys on spectacular weekend!
The Pro class results sheets show the strength and depth of Ski-Doo X-Team riders and teams plus the quality and performance of the sleds they were on. To experience so few problems on a season opening weekend is a testament to the hard work and thoughtful engineering that has gone into our production based Open Mod and stock class racing sleds. That same engineering that is applied to Ski-Doo trail sleds year after year.
In the Pro Lite class David Joanis brought home the gold on Saturday and Renaud Alexandre took care of business on Sunday, with Dylan Hall covering second position, to complete the Ski-Doo Pro class sweep.
New to North America as a racer, Marica Renheim came over from Sweden with brother Adam when he joined the Warnert Racing team as a Pro rider. Marica put on a show in taking the Pro-Am Women’s class – she’ll be one to watch, for at least one more round unless she cancels plans to return home at Christmas.
In the hotly contested Sport class, with over 100 entries both days, Jesse James Bonaduce gets a shout out for a flawless ride and race win on Saturday.
Thanks to all the Ski-Doo X-Team racers and their families and crews for a great start to the snocross season. We appreciate your support and we’ll continue to support you with the best race sleds possible.
