Ski-Doo X-Team racer, Adam Renheim bested the field to win the 2013 FIM World SnowCross Championship in Tuuri, Finland in front of 25,000 fans.
Renheim, a Swedish Snocross champion, started his year off racing in North America for Warnert Racing before moving back to Europe to defend his national title and make a run at the World Championship. But he didn’t make the World Championship task easy with a crash during qualifying that relegated him to the Last Chance qualifying session to make the big show. Renheim made up for the slow start by winning the first of three races that determine the championship, and finished second in the next two to wrap up the overall title. This was Ski-Doo’s first ever win in the World Championship.
Fellow Swede Petter Narsa grabbed second position on a BRP built Lynx snowmobile by winning the final race and finishing two points behind the champion
Meanwhile, back in North America the Valcourt Grand Prix took place in BRP’s home-base of Valcourt, Quebec. Tim Tremblay was dominant on his Scheuring Speed Sports sled, winning all three Pro Open snocross races with different fellow X-team racers David Joanis, Darin Mees and Robbie Malinoski backing him up each day.
