    Christian Brothers Racing Geneva

    Nestled in the Southeastern corner of Wisconsin, Lake Geneva has played host to the final National snocross event of the season for over a decade and a half. Carved into the ski slopes of Grand Geneva Resort, the ISOC Grand Finale track was one of the longest and most challenging of the season, boasting features the riders don’t even see at the Winter X Games including three uphill and downhill runs.

    DOC360/DRIFT Racing/Troy Lee Designs/Arctic Cat rider Logan Christian posted strong performances Saturday and Sunday at Lake Geneva, placing sixth and eighth respectively. This came after a tough Friday where Christian missed making the final by one position. Final season points tally put Christian in sixth place overall in the premier Pro Open class.

      A jam-packed race calendar saw the Christian Brothers Racing team spread across three states and just as many time zones as riders competed in National snocross in Michigan, cross-country in Minnesota and a 2,000-mile race in Alaska. The results were combination of triumph and heartbreak.

      Christian Brothers Racing snocross riders competed in the Soaring Eagle’s Snocross in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. After two events that featured ultra-small bullring-style tracks, Mt. Pleasant got the riders back onto a longer, more spread-out track layout.

        The snocross arm of Christian Brothers Racing headed to one of the premier events on the national schedule, the Canterbury Snocross in Shakopee, Minn. Seen by many as the birthplace of modern day snocross, Canterbury is located just outside the Twin Cities metro area and typically draws one of the largest crowds of any of the races on the schedule. CBR riders fought a fine, wet snow on Friday and frigid temperatures on Saturday on the way to racking up a winning weekend.

        The DRIFT Racing/Arctic Cat of Logan Christian was at the front of the Pro Open pack all weekend, but a couple bobbles in the main events affected Christian’s finishing position. He ran as high as third on Friday and fifth on Saturday, but settled for sixth place and 14th finishes.

          The slopes of Blackjack Ski Resort in Bessemer, Mich. played host to the second round of the ISOC national snocross schedule. Bitter cold greeted the Christian Brothers Racing team for the Northern Clearing Snocross event December 6-7, 2013.

          Friday-Saturday double-header, this race marks CBR’s third visit to the Bessemer venue, which again featured a massive track laid out on the slopes of Blackjack Mountain. It is typically one of the largest tracks and longest lap times the team sees during the season.

            Zach Herfindahl wrapped up his successful rookie Pro cross-country racing season with two more podium finishes at the USXC Warroad 100. A rough race course along the shores of Lake of the Woods in northern Minnesota challenged all riders, but Herfindahl fought to a second-place finish in the 100-mile Pro 600 race and a third place spot in the 40-mile Pro Open event.

            “I had a good weekend,” says Herfindahl. “I wasn’t far behind the winner in both races so I feel good about the two podium finishes.”

            Logan Christian SnocrossWhile the cross-country team was busy in Warroad, Logan Christian, Evan Christian and Tyler Adams were hard at work chasing podium spots at the ISOC RAM Trucks Snocross going on at Buffalo River Race Park in Fargo, ND. During Friday’s racing Logan went 3-3 on his DRIFT Racing/Troy Lee Designs Arctic Cat and finished sixth in the final. On Saturday he went 3-1 and in the final was in second place after the first turn when he was run into by another rider resulting in his running board getting pushed into the tunnel, the pipes getting dislodged and a broken chain case.

            “Getting run into was a big bummer,” says Christian. “I was having one of the best race days of the season. I had a great start, we were dialed in for the track and I felt like I could have won that race.”
