      Corin Todd Pro Lite Champion

      It came down to the last race of the last day of the season, but Corin Todd swept his qualifying rounds and finished on the podium in third place to secure his first Pro Lite national championship.

      Todd held a 10-point advantage coming into the weekend and was leading Saturday night’s main event on his AMSOIL Polaris, but a crash on the rugged front straight relegated him to the back of the pack where he would ultimately finish ninth.

          USXC Pine Lake Preview

          For over 25 years Pine Lake, near Gonvick, Minn., has been the scene for the start of cross-country snowmobile racing and 2013 will continue that tradition.

          Racers look to shake off the summer rust, find their favorite line, and get their pace back from last season. New machines go from crate to workbench to the fast ice surface of Pine Lake where clutching, jetting, and setups are tested in preparation for the new season. The Pine Lake 200, once again, kicks-off a highly anticipated, eight race USXC schedule for 2013-2014.

            Ben Lindbom Yamaha Viper

            For the first time in several years, Yamaha supported riders will be competing in snocross…sort of. As part of its testing ahead of the USXC cross country racing season, Yamaha racers will appear at select early ISOC snocross races this season.

            “We have been working on our new SR Viper RTX race sleds all summer and fall,” says Yamaha Snowmobile Racing’s Eric Josephsen. “Our team has developed a great setup on the new sled with an eye on our primary goal, which is to win the USXC Pro title this season and be a consistent podium finisher in RMSHA. With this new sled, we want to test it in competition before the season gets under way, like a preseason football game. That will let us work out any hiccups before we get to the Pine Lake race.”
