Tucker Hibbert reunites with ArcticWear
Team Arctic’s Tucker Hibbert will launch into the 2014-2015 Snocross racing season sporting ArcticWear Gear from Arctic Cat. It’s the same winning combination that helped launch Hibbert’s record-setting career over 15 years ago.
“It just feels right coming home to ArcticWear,” Hibbert said in a press release. “ArcticWear is part of the family of Arctic Cat products and people that have been so important throughout my career. It’s a brand full of passion that’s dedicated to performance. I’m very proud to be back in ArcticWear and have it as the official gear of my team.”
Hibbert is an eight-time X Games gold medalist and has 95 Pro class victories – the most of any racer throughout the history of Snocross competition. He achieved these results through a combination of talent, support and a steadfast pursuit of excellence. His attention to detail is legendary, and he helped design and develop the ArcticWear jacket and pants that he will wear on the track this season. His design influence will further translate to a signature sportswear line for ArcticWear bearing his name and iconic No. 68 in the near future, reported Kale Wainer of Arctic Cat.

Ski-Doo offers suspension upgrades for non-current sleds
BRP makes it easy for owners of older Ski-Doo snowmachines to upgrade to the latest front suspension with the RAS 2 front suspension kit. This kit delivers the same RAS 2 benefits of better straight-line tracking in big bumps, lighter weight and great styling – with X Package calibration, at a great price.
The RAS 2 front suspension improves handling and lightens most 2008-2014 Ski-Doo trail or mountain models by replacing the major front suspension components, and is a direct bolt-on to existing chassis mounts. Of interest to owners of older Summits is the change-to-change to the 36-inch ski stance as well as upgrade to the RAS 2 at the same time. The special pricing of the kit also makes it very attractive to owners that may have front-end damage, allowing them to upgrade and repair at the same time for a low cost.
The RAS 2 kit comes in two different widths, one for trail use at a 42-inch ski stance, with a cost of $749.99; and one for mountain use at 36-inch stance, which is also $749.99. Both kits come with everything needed for REV-XP, REV-XS and REV-XM chassis snowmachines. Components included are upper and lower A-arms, both spindles, tie rods, both shocks and all hardware needed. For more information on all genuine BRP accessories to fit your ride visit www.store.ski-doo.com or your local Ski-Doo dealer.
floats new Knik
area trail plan
The Matanuska Susitna Borough Department of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is proposing to design, lay out, and construct three miles of new low-speed, technical trails on a 462-acre parcel of MSB Recreation land in the Jim Creek Recreation Area. The sustainable motorized trail would be similar in nature to the recently constructed Rippy Extension Trail to the northeast in the Knik River Public Use Area. The new trails would provide opportunities for beginner ATV riders and a linkage from the JCRA to the KRPUA. The trails would be open to ATV, ORV, snowmachine, hunting, fishing and camping.
