Tucker Hibbert

Here's a look at some of the biggest and most memorable moments from my snocross career . . . going all the way back to my FIRST snocross race! Yup, that's me on my dad's sled wearing his jacket and helmet in West Yellowstone 1996! 😜

Do you have a favorite? Tell me! I want to hear about it! 👍

I had 7c sign a pic of him doing a superman at Lake Geneva, the 1st thing he said when he saw you standing by the finish line was, watch this Tucker kid when he turns Pro, he's going be awesome 🙂

I was there in 96.

Easy, 2015 deadwood. My whole family was in the stands that nite, never seen anything like it! Still get goosebumps thinking about, place was electric

Tucker what was your favorite sled during all your years of competition? Did you ever 1 sled that you just liked more than the others?

Tucker, I've been witness to the bulk of your career, you have represented Sno-Cross racing and Arctic Cat Racing as a True Champion. I'm going to miss you on the track, your excellent skill and behavior behind the bars made my job of keeping all of you riders safe one of the best jobs in all of Motorsport!! Congratulations and best wishes in your next adventure!! Keep us all posted. Your friend L.T. Frederick

My favorite is when you whooped all us big kids that were riding 250's on your 80 at the st. Hilaire track!

Thanks for the memories Tucker and taking the time to stay after a race for your fans whether you won or not. You will be missed at the Seneca Allegany Casino in Salamanca, NY.

that was some big Shoes to fill, and you Nock it out of the Park !

Tucker, What yr was your favorite sled to race?

Cool picture of you and Russ I was fortunate enough to have him as a teacher I do believe he is one of the smartest men I have ever met and a real class act

Definitely the picture of you and your dad side by side, that’s talent comparable to Dale Sr and Jr. Enjoy retirement!!

I remember a race a couple years ago you were in 1st and lapped everyone...making you the 1st and 2nd place winners in my opinion. 🙂

I believe it was last year, you were all the way on the right side at the start, at the bottom of the ski slope, pinned it, and at the top, the track took a hard left, you never let off, and passed everyone on the high right side on a left hand turn! We all looked at each other and said, "did he just do that?!!"

I love the heel clicker picture haha

Here's a picture from salamanca a couple of years ago. Always enjoyed watching you race. Surely not going to be the same.

Best memory was talking to you and your pops trackside in Gaylord, MI in early 2000s. Watching you and Blair go at it.

Was there for the deadwood win easily one of the best races I've seen in any sport all eyes in the stands on you as you climbed back to first

What a awesome career you had. Thanks for the memories I remember seeing you also race indoor at Fargo and got your autograph on some coats that I still have. Good luck with your next endeavors

My favorite was when you showed up at I think your first Olympics, with that tricked out Mod 😊

When you gonna start posting all those Hibbert vs Morgan races?

So glad you raced here in Chicago and Chicago land Snocross is so cool and you are the best!!

Lake Geneva 2016 right before the final on Sunday

👍🏻

Thanks for the years.

My first snowmobile 😉 👍🏼

Here's a link to my 2001 SnowWeek Racer of the Year Interview 🏁 www.tucker-hibbert.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/2001-SnowWeek-RacerOfTheYear-300dpi.pdf

My hubby is bumming...He told me snocross will never be the same

Snow cross will never be the same

Not everyone would've gotten down and talked to a kid like this. Made his day.

I got your autograph, and Blair’s, on the same hat when you were racing at Mt. Snow, Vermont. The greatest SnoCross champions, and the sport will never be the same. Thanks for the show! You made all Arctic fans very proud.

I'm still in denial Big Micheal Jordan fan he retired then Fred couples his back is killing his game and now T TRAIN no way to be replaced

Don't care the brand you choose, this guy is the best ever on a sled. Hands down, nobody prepared like he did. Who else did you see walking the track before a race? Nobody. Cheers to one hell of a career!!

I can't process this disturbing news yet. Still in shock. Some of us fans are just greedy and want another year watching you, even tho you have giving so much to us already. Oh well. Hopefully you will start a family now. That would be sweet.

My daughter and I when I worked for A.C, some event in the plant....she thought it was a cool snowmobile and wanted to set up in it.

I am a Polaris rider, but have enjoyed watching you ride over the 17 years. You did good Tucker in so many ways for the sport of snowmobiling. Enjoy your time and the next adventure in your life.

Not only did you dominate the sport, you were the best ambassador for snocross! The sport is lucky to have had you racing and promoting snocross.

Heck yeah. Watched you all the way! Kinda miss your rivalry against Blair Morgan. Those were fun times.

It's been a pleasure watching you race hopefully you were an inspiration to kids I wish you the best in your next adventure

Your going to be missed on the track.

And to think when you started riding the ZR chassis was the newest hottest thing on the market now look what we are riding

Didn't that sled have a tube chassis and the sled the firecat chassis was designed after?

Thanks for the show Tucker.

Your a Legend Tucker, I’m done watching Sno Cross

Wish I could have seen you race in person. The races I went to you didn’t show up to.

Tucker do you still have the green donate life bracelet I gave you at haydays last year?

You changed the sport thank you for all the entertainment

This year at Dubuque I got a chance to spend some time with Tucker and his crew, I got a real eye opener, For him to be at such a high level of this sport this man has made a huge sacrifice, When you see him stand up on the podium we fans cheer and go home but the level of commitment and dedication the whole crew went thru to keep him there was incredible. There were a lot of not so glamorous hours spent working on the sleds and getting them ready and then there is the boredom of the time between races and the hassle of moving everyone and everything from venue to home and on to the next race, this is not has easy has Tucker made it look. Thank you it has been an honor and a privilege to watch the best ever.

Best cross rider ive ever seen probobly the besr there ever will be huge fan good luck on your next adventure must have been awsome to get to ride all those cats

I don't think I'll be watching without you Tucker. Snocross will never be the same? Will we still see you at the tracks? I sure hope so !! You're the best Tucker !!! I'm sure going to miss you !!!

Thanks for the ride Tucker. Watching you grow into the incredible athlete and person you are was like you were a member of our family. (And you are kinda because we still have our 12+ year old cat named....Tucker Hibbert). Best of luck in the next chapter. God Bless my friend.

So did isoc ask you to retire so that the playing field can level off again? Maybe come back in 4-5 years and school everyone all over again at 40. #snocrossgoat

You have been one of the most fan friendly and professional racers in any form of motorsports. I remember watching you run semi-pro in Gaylord, Mi ( because you were 15) and knew you were going to be something special. Such a talent and humble too. A great role model. Congratulations on your retirement and career. Glad you're going out on your terms. Enjoy you've earned it

Wow, am disappointed but understand your decision. Thousands of your fans wish you only the best for your future. Please put together a DVD of your racing history, especially those years you raced against Blair Morgan. God bless.

Congratulations, happy for you but still very sad you have always been and always will be one of my SUPERHEROS !!!!! THANK YOU......for all that you’ve given to us and have had such an AWESOME person & racer to look up to for so many years !!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️

Congrats either direction you go and for what you’ve accomplished. You have been the man that everyone looks up too and feared at the same time. Glad I got to see you ride man, good luck in all you do

What a ride. Thank for being an ambassador for the sport, setting the highest level of achievement one could only hope to surpass, and for letting me interview you and your wife when I first started reporting. ❤️🏁

Congratulations on an incredible career! We hope you are proud to have such a successful career dominating and changing the sport of SnoX! We enjoyed watching you race each weekend and had so much fun cheering on our hometown guy! So proud to have such a positive, successful, faith driven, and kind man to represent TRF and MN! Best wishes in your future endeavors 🎉💙

You've been a household name here for many years!!! We've enjoyed your career and wish you the very best in the future!!!! It will be a long time before anyone fills your "boots"!! Your professionalism, compassion, concern for those around you is unmatched by anyone. Impeccable career young man!!

This is such sad news for the racing community. Tucker you are an inspiration and have always been amazing to watch. You're such a kind hearted person and always made time to shake hands and stop for anyone who just wanted a few minutes with you. Best wishes on your next adventure, I'm sure whatever you choose to do will be amazing. 😥😎✌️💚 #68🏁

An absolute staple in the industry and one that is going to be missed greatly on the track! You accomplished so much in your racing career, it's going to be sad to not see the 68 out there. I wish you the best in your future plans! Thanks for all the memories in snocross!

Snocross will never be the same. I was never a fan of any athlete until I met you. My husband and I loved watching you in action, whether in person or via livestream! Thank you for the incredible example of great sportsmanship, humbleness, and dedication! (And for always “thanking the Lord for allowing you to do what you love and keeping you safe”) Blessings to you and Mandie.

It was an honor to know you Tucker! Thank you for all these beautiful emotions that you made us live. We'll miss you a lot. We wish you and Mandy a beautiful 2nd life and a lot of little Tucker-Mandy! ❤️💚💚💚💚❤️❤️❤️

Thank you Tucker Hibert for many years of watching you!!!! I’ve always said you could find a way to win on an old Sno-Jet. My family and I have watched you come from dead last to pass for the win in the final lap in Deadwood more than once! Even tho I’m not the biggest Cat fan I always appreciated your wins and the gratitude you showed to the fans. Thank you and enjoy your time with your family. I know you will be involved in snowmobiling for many years to come.

Tucker Hibbert = The G.O.A.T snocross racer. Thank you for all the great memories! The epic battles with Blair, Ross Martin, Tim Tremblay and Kody Kamm will be hard to match by future racers. Tucker's longevity in this sport has been incredible. I doubt anyone will be able to match the achievements....

Sad news but you have your health, youth and tons of opportunities ahead of you I’m sure. What a career! They changed the rules because of you or I’m sure you would have even more victories. There will never be another like you. Thanks for riding Arctic Cats. You are the G.O.A.T.!!!!wish I had seen you in person!

Oh no!! But I guess every great thing has to come to an end! You are truly blessed with skills like no other and the coolest & kindest Mom in the world! And a Pops always supporting you 110%! Enjoy some ice fishing!!

Sad to hear Tucker. You were, and always will be, my favorite racer!!! Good luck in your new adventures!!!

So happy for you! You are a positive role model! Have watched you racing back to Grygla Fall fest on your bike and many snowmobile races! Good luck to you!
