Team Arctic snocross racers prevailed at Round #3 and #4 of the ISOC National series in Fargo, ND, capturing eight class wins, 19 podium finishes and the top spot among the competitive brands. From the youngest classes to the premier Pro Open category, Team Arctic racers and the Arctic Cat ZR6000R SX once again proved to be the winning combination.

Tucker Hibbert captured his second Pro Open win of the season in Fargo with a masterful, dominant performance in Round 4 that all but erased the frustrations of a chaotic first turn pileup the previous evening that left him out of contention for the win, but still able to salvage a fourth. Hibbert remains in the Pro Open points lead.

Team Arctic’s Martin Moland delivered a storybook performance en route to winning the Pro Lite final ahead of teammate Montana Jess on Saturday. The young racer from Alta, Sweden, was originally planning to return home after the Fargo round. But after a strong showing in Duluth, his dad offered an incentive: win in Fargo and Martin could stay and race the full season. With focus, grit and determination, Moland won and will finish the ISOC season with the expert help of the Frattalone Race team.

Team Arctic maintained its place atop the support and youth categories at Fargo. Ryley Bester continued his perfect season in the Junior classes at Fargo, winning the Jr. 14-15 and 16-17 finals in dominant fashion. Baily Forst took his first win of the season in Sport Lite #2, while Eric Downs continued his winning ways by leading a Team Arctic podium sweep of Jr. 10-13. Likewise, Taven Woodie notched her second win of the season in Jr. Girls 9-13. Andy Pake was another first time winner in Fargo, leading a 1-2-3 finish for Team Green in the Transition 8-12 final.

“To leave Fargo with the most wins and most podium finishes of any brand is both gratifying and a huge relief,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “It was a marginal track that left zero margin for error. Our racers and teams stepped up to the challenging conditions and proved themselves by hauling home the most hardware, which makes everyone at Arctic Cat even more proud. Now they can rest up for a few weeks while the cold temps and snow return for the rest of the season.”

The next ISOC snocross national is Jan. 8-9 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn.

Team Arctic snocross racers launched into the 2015-2016 season and on top of the podium with a stunning performance at the ISOC National at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, Minn., delivering six victories, 21 podium positions and a winning performance across all classes and categories aboard the mighty Arctic Cat ZR6000R SX.

Tucker Hibbert once again led the charge at Duluth with a dominant performance in the Pro Open class, taking the win on night one with his fifth consecutive victory at this venue, followed by a near-miss on the second day that saw him charge from mid-pack to second place, less than a half-second from passing for the win. Justin Broberg joined Team Arctic this season and immediately proved his place among the Pro Open elite with a fourth place finish that bodes well for the rest of the season. And David Joanis was the top qualifier of the weekend backing it up with a sixth place finish.

If there were questions about Team Arctic’s top Sport riders moving into the Pro Lite class for this season, they answered it with a show of force sure to make the competition nervous. Montana Jess claimed a pair of second place finishes, Dan Benham took a third place, and Team Arctic claimed five of the top-10 in one final and four of the top-10 in the other.

Ryley Bester hit a new level of speed and confidence to start the season, taking commanding wins in both Jr. 14-15 and Jr. 16-17. The winning continued in the youth classes with Eric Downs claiming Jr. 10-13, Inanna Hauger winning Jr. Girls 9-13, and Anson Scheele taking Transition 8-12. When Team Arctic wasn’t winning, they were a whisker away from it. Eddie Neubaur, Dylan Jansen and Brandon Lind delivered podium finishes in the Sport and Sport Lite classes, while Wes Selby made a strong return to snocross with a second in Pro AM 30 Plus.

“We’re happy and excited,” said Team Arctic Race Manager Mike Kloety, when asked about the team’s overall performance at Duluth. “For starters, it’s great to capture the big class with Tucker. That’s the headline win for sure. But it’s equally impressive to win every Junior category, with Team Green taking five of the top-6 in Jr. 16-17, four of the top-5 in Jr. 10-13 and seven of the top-10 in Jr. Girls. Plus we claimed podium positions in every Pro Lite, Sport and Sport Lite class. It proves how hard our racers and teams have worked, the power and handling of our ZR6000R SX race sled and the strength of our program.”

The next ISOC snocross national is Dec. 11-12 in Fargo, ND.
