Press Release –
Team Arctic is readying its rider weapons of choice for this season’s ISOC National Snocross Tour, and the allegiance of Tucker Hibbert fans will be happy to know he is on board prepared to win.
Hibbert will pilot his 2009 Sno Pro 600, and is mentally and physically prepared to improve upon his 2008 Stock Championship winning season.
He also crushed the competition at ESPN’s Winter X games, capturing the gold medal – by a large margin – and adding a seventh medal overall to his collection.
It was Hibbert’s third victory at the event; the 24-year-old is still the youngest athlete ever to claim Winter, or Summer X gold, doing so in 2000 at age 15.
“Tucker is one of the best racers to watch; he has a way of making race fans cheer for him that aren’t necessarily Arctic Cat loyalists,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “We expect Tucker to do very well, especially with all the changes we’ve made to the Sno Pro 600. This combo should be stronger than anyone has ever seen.”
“I’m looking forward to racing in the new ISOC series. I’ll be at all the national ISOC races leading up to the Winter X Games. This will be my tenth Winter X competition and at every one of them, I’ve chosen to ride an Arctic Cat. That’s a testament to the quality of Arctic Cat’s Sno Pros and their dedication to winning in the sport. I’m proud to be a Team Arctic rider and hope to lead the way to another winning season!”
In other Tucker Hibbert related news, Arctic Cat will be the title sponsor of his #87 Arctic Cat/Monster Energy-wrapped 250F in the Lites division at the AMA Toyota Motocross Championships in Millville, Mn., August 16-17th. For more information, please visit www.tucker-hibbert.com.
