In case you somehow forgot that Tucker Hibbert was the most dominating snocross racer on the planet, he likely reminded you this weekend by earning gold at the ESPN Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo. The win was the seventh straight for Hibbert, the first X Games athlete to ever win any event seven years in a row.

Hibbert dominated the snocross event from start to finish, winning by 13 seconds over second place to claim his eighth career gold and 12th career medal at the prestigious event.

Tucker Hibbert

Team Arctic snocross and cross-country racers got 2014 off to a roaring start with great success on the year’s opening weekend.

Tucker Hibbert set the all-time Pro national win record with his 85th and 86th Pro class victories in Shakopee, Minn., while Team Green cross-country racers won 17 of 20 finals at the USXC event in Detroit Lakes, Minn.

Team Arctic racers put on a dominant display as the 2014 AMSOIL Championship Snocross series moved to Blackjack Resort in Bessemer, Mich. for rounds 3-4. Arctic Cat sleds won 10 of 15 finals, earning four podium sweeps and 22 of a possible 45 podium positions.

“We went to Bessemer with the momentum of taking nine wins at the season opener in Duluth one week prior, plus the strength of our ZR6000R Sno Pro race sleds,” says Mike Kloety, Team Arctic race manager. “I would have been happy to match our performance from a week earlier, but instead our racers and teams upped the ante and claimed more victories and podium sweeps.”

Arctic Cat Racing

It seemed like just about every weekend this winter, we were writing about an Arctic Cat sled on top of a podium. With snowmobile racing all wrapped up until next fall, Arctic Cat says its racers have claimed more high-point championship titles than anybody else.

“When you win most of the battles, you’re likely going to win the war,” says Team Arctic Race Manager, Mike Kloety. “In USXC cross-country especially, yet also in ISOC snocross and RMSHA hillclimbs, we won more than our share of the battles and, as a result, took home most of the championship high point titles.”

Arctic Cat found its greatest success in the USXC cross-country circuit, where Team Arctic racers claimed high-point titles in 13 of 20 classes. Headlining the cross-country domination were Christian Brothers Racing Pros Ryan Simons and Zach Herfindahl, who finished 1-2 in both Pro 600 and Pro Open championship tallies. Other stand-out title performances in USXC belong to Benjamin Langaas, who won both Expert 85 and Improved 85 titles; And Jolene Bute, who won all 10 Women’s finals (and the Championship title) during the season.

Tucker Hibbert Clash of Nations

Apparently Tucker Hibbert needed to taste snocross victory one more time this season. The Team Arctic pilot few to Sweden and picked up a win at the Clash of Nations Super Snowcross event.

With 16 riders in the main event, including Logan Christian from Christian Bros. Racing, Hibbert ripped a monstrous holeshot and ran away with the win, while Logan Christian charged hard through the entire race finishing in third.

“It was awesome to come back to Sweden, take a win and finish the season healthy,” says Hibbert. “It’s a great feeling flying across the world and having fans cheer for you. I’m always surprised by the amount of support and excitement from fans in Scandinavia.”
