Hibbert to Race FIM Snowcross World Championship as Planned
February 15, 2012 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert will indeed travel to Russia to compete in the FIM Snowcross World Championship as originally planned. The ISOC AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series recently rescheduled New York’s Eastern National for February 24-25, which is the same weekend as the World Championship in Russia.
Hibbert, who is the defending ISOC ACSS National Pro Open Champion, had plans to race the full eight-stop ISOC ACSS tour along with the World Championship in Russia and Sweden’s Clash of Nations the end of March.
