Press Release –
Yamaha rented the track on Monday to give local snowmobilers an opportunity to take demo rides. Hundreds of people were able to come back to the track and test ride new 2008 snowmobiles.
Next stop in the WPSA tour is the Air Force Canterbury Snocross in Shakopee, MN, Jan 11-13.
That well-timed break gives the Yamaha Factory Snocross riders a chance to recover and continue their heavy R&D schedule, so things look great going into round two.
Marier, positive about the weekend’s results and the direction the team is heading, says, “We are racing as a development program. Steve is a finesse rider, so we are working on calibrating the machine to his style and improving durability all the time. We’ll be testing and racing at a regional level to be ready for the second National round.”
Yamaha Factory Snocross team sponsors include Yamaha, Yamalube®, FXR®, Camoplast®, Fox Racing Shox™, GYTR™, Stud Boy®, Fly Racing® and Evolved Nutrition. Yamaha Factory Racing Team support is provided by OTSFF. The Minocqua Race Team is also sponsored by Phiten Racing.
