Adam RenheimSki-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.

Joe Parons X Games 2013Ski-Doo riders had a successful weekend at the Winter X 2013, earning seven medals in the snowmobile competitions.

Joe Parsons topped all snowmobile competitors, collecting medals in each of the three events he entered, including silver in Freestyle and Best Trick. Parsons stepped up his game to carry the torch when his teammate and defending Best Trick winner Heath Frisby suffered two hard practice crashes on Thursday.

Frisby was forced to withdraw from the Freestyle competition and limped through the Speed and Style event, in which Parsons earned the bronze medal. Frisby did take part in Best Trick on Sunday night and appeared to have a winning run when he threw out his signature Underflip, but judges saw it differently. In his second run, Frisby tried to raise the bar even higher with a variation, but was unable to land the trick. Still, Frisby earned a bronze medal for his efforts. Parsons then unleashed his Gator Wrestler backflip and added a new twist by landing it backward to the roar of the crowd, earning the silver.

Robbie Malinoski Duluth NationalSki-Doo racers put together what can only be described as a dominating performance at the ISOC snocross series opener in Duluth, Minn. With four Pro and Pro Lite classes up for grabs, Ski-Doo racers took wins in all of them.

Robbie Malinoski had a phenomenal weekend as he led the Ski-Doo/Scheuring Speed Sports podium sweep in Pro Open Sunday afternoon, adding to his Saturday night win and establishing a substantial points lead. Having a great weekend of his own was defending Champion Tim Tremblay who claimed a third on Saturday and second on Sunday with rock solid rides every time he hit the racetrack. Completing the Sunday sweep was Darrin Mees, who claimed his first Pro podium in third, backing up an eighth-place run on Saturday. Everyone suspected the Scheuring Speed Sports team would be tough and saw the potential for a podium sweep, but most wouldn’t have expected it so early in the season.

2013 Ski-Doo MX Zx 600RSBRP has upped the ante for the upcoming snowmobile racing season with its 2013 Ski-Doo MX Zx 600RS race sled.

According to BRP, the sled features revised front suspension geometry with better handling in bumps, along with refined engine components to maximize power output in all conditions.

The Ski-Doo racing program saw huge success last year claiming the ISOC Snocross series championship, Eagle River World Championship in snocross, world famous Iron Dog cross country event and the gruelling Cains Quest race. That success was due mostly to the Ski-Doo MX Zx 600RS model using the REV-X chassis – the basis for all Ski-Doo trail snowmobiles.

Tim Tremblay Scheuring Speed SportsDefending AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series Pro Open Snocross Champion Tim Tremblay has signed with Scheuring Speed Sports. The two-time Pro Champion will join the reigning Team of the Year for the 2012-13 ACSS tour, racing out of the AMSOIL/Ski-Doo trailer alongside top pro riders Robbie Malinoski (third overall in points) and Pro Rookie of the Year Darrin Mees.

“With the addition of Tim to our race team, and with Robbie and Darrin already on board, we will be a force to be reckoned with this year,” says team owner Steve Scheuring.

For Tremblay, the move is one he believes will bring continued success and stability as he enters the prime of his career.

“Steve Scheuring has a true professional race team and his team never stops working on being better, and that is the team I want to race for,” says Tremblay. “The AMSOIL/U.S. Air Force/Rockstar/Ski-Doo sleds they put together came out of the holeshot strong at every race last year. And the way the Fox Shox handled the rough national tracks was impressive. I am excited to race for Scheuring Speed Sports and still stay with a great company like Ski-Doo.”
