Tucker Hibbert to Race Sweden’s Clash of Nations Super Snowcross

January 17, 2013 – Tucker Hibbert will make his first appearance at Sweden’s Clash of Nations (CON) Super Snowcross event March 28-29. In only three years, CON has experienced tremendous growth, becoming one of the premier action sports events in Scandinavia. Over 70 of world’s top snowcross and snowmobile freestyle athletes are expected to compete in the two-day event held at the prestigious Lugnet Arena in Falun.

This will mark Hibbert’s second career appearance in the snowmobile crazed country and his first event in the southern region. He first traveled to Sweden in 2010 to compete in the FIM Snowcross World Championship held in Mala. The American rider received a warm welcome and went on to win his first World Championship title.

Hibbert was scheduled to race at the 2012 CON but had to withdraw due to an injury suffered only days prior to the event. It is the only snowmobile race he has missed due to an injury in his 13 years as a professional athlete. He made a full recovery and currently holds the ISOC Pro Open Championship points lead in the U.S.

Next up for Hibbert is ESPN Winter X Games January 27 in Aspen, Colo. where he will compete for the first-ever gold medal six-peat.  Fans worldwide can watch the event live on ESPN. For Hibbert’s complete race schedule, visit www.tucker-hibbert.com.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat

“It’s going to be awesome to go back to Sweden. I had to miss last year but was able to watch the races online. It looked like a big track so it should be fun. I’ve only heard really positive things about the event.

I hope the race fans are as excited about racing at they were in Mala. The level of enthusiasm for snowmobiles and racing in Sweden is on a different level. I expect it to be the same in Falun.

It’s always a unique experience traveling and racing overseas. I really like the challenge of it. Each year, I meet new people and get put into a situation I’ve never experienced. It’s fun to compete against guys that I don’t get to race with in the U.S. and to check out the different riding styles. There’s a lot of talent over there. It should be the perfect way to end my season!”

Hibbert Takes Snocross Points Lead at Minnesota’s Canterbury Park National

January 7, 2013 – With his home state fans behind him, Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert rallied to dominant victories Friday and Saturday night at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn. The reigning World Champion rode with confidence and precision throughout the qualifying rounds and final events to sweep his first national event in three years; taking the ISOC Pro Open Championship points lead in the process.

After finishing 1-1 in his qualifying rounds, Hibbert was awarded the number one pick for Friday night’s 15-rider, 22-lap final. He ripped the Stud Boy holeshot and never looked back to win the main event by 16 seconds.
Hibbert woke up Saturday as the new Pro Open Championship red plate holder. He went on to convincingly win both qualifying rounds but had to dig deep in the final. At the close of lap one he found himself in third with Ross Martin and Tim Tremblay battling out front. He didn’t let them out of his sight and methodically picked off both riders to take the lead. He continued to push forward and when the checkers flew, he had lapped every rider but the second place finisher.
Next up for Hibbert is ESPN Winter X Games January 27 in Aspen where he will compete for the first-ever gold medal six-peat. This year marks his 13th appearance at the high-profile event. He holds the record for being the youngest athlete to win a gold medal and with ten medals to his name, is the most decorated snowmobile athlete in X Games history. Fans worldwide can watch the event live on ESPN.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“It’s really exciting to sweep an event again. We (the team) have been working hard and it’s paying off. We’re all excited about the rest of the season.
It felt awesome to win Friday, then to take the points lead put it on a different level. I was down over 20 points after Duluth. I started to dig myself out of that hole at Bessemer and pushed to the top this weekend at Canterbury. It was rewarding to walk into the trailer Saturday morning and see the red plates on my sled. It definitely gave the entire team extra spark and motivation.
It’s a good deal to have wins under my belt before Winter X. The team is riding high and has newfound motivation to work even harder. To sweep an event right before X is the best thing that could have happened for us. All of our focus is now on X and to take the six-peat.”
