Press Release –
Yamaha snowmobiles bagged four wins over the January 7-8 weekend at a pair of North Dakota events.
Corey Davidson led the charge on Saturday at the USCC Cross Country races in Minto, where he won both the Vet 35+ class on an Apex RTX and the Pro Open Mod class on a modified Apex.
The seven-mile course included icy marshes, fields and even a segment of frozen river. Two riders started every 20 seconds, and the one with the lowest elapsed time for three laps got the win.
Davidson launched in the second flight and enjoyed mostly clear riding on his way to his Vet 35+ win. But in Pro Open Mod, he started at the back and had to muscle past nearly everyone in the field – only to tie Josh Davis on time.
Both riders were awarded first-place points, but a coin toss awarded Davidson the trophy. Adding to the positive results for Yamaha Blue and White was Alaskan Chad Gueco, who piloted his Pierce Racing Apex to third in the 100-mile Pro Stock event.
On Sunday the series moved to Grafton, where an eight-mile course covered a frozen river and woodlands.
This time it was Tim Sargent who won the Vet 35+ class on his Apex RTX, while Brad Gebeke took another Apex RTX to victory in the Masters 45+ class.
