Podium finish for Hibbert at shortened Duluth National Snocross

Nov. 28, 2016 – Tucker Hibbert took a podium finish at the shortened 25th Annual Duluth National over Thanksgiving weekend. Races were completed Friday and Saturday night in Duluth, Minn. before heavy fog rolled in, blanketing Spirit Mountain ski hill. The poor visibility prompted ISOC National Snocross officials to call off Sunday’s races, including round two of the Pro Open class.

The 2016/2017 ISOC National Snocross tour kicked-off Friday night with head-to-head, non-points, bracket racing. Hibbert notched two wins but came up short of racing in the Dominator final.

Saturday featured the first of 17 Pro Open rounds of racing that will be contested this winter for the Pro Open Championship. Hibbert, the defending champion, went 4-3 in his qualifying rounds to qualify ninth for the 15-rider, 18-lap final. In the final, he had a top-five start off the line and knew he had to move quickly to make his way to the front. Fighting heavy, dirty snow roost, a mistake on lap seven set him back a position. With five to go, he moved into third to secure a podium finish.

Hibbert currently sits fifth in the Pro Open points standings, only six points out of first place. The national tour now takes a two-weekend break before hitting a new venue in Winter Park, Colo. December 16-17. For his full snocross schedule, visit tucker-hibbert.com.

NOTE: Day two of the Duluth National has been rescheduled for Sunday, January 8 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn.

On the shortened race weekend: “It was not a normal race weekend for me and it feels weird to start off the season this way. The first two days were okay but with the third day being cancelled due to fog, it really puts a damper on the kick-off of the season.”

On Saturday’s performance in Pro Open round one: “I’m fairly happy with my results. Having a podium in the main event is good but I want to win races. I’m not completely satisfied but, on the same note, it’s not a terrible place to be. We (the team) have a lot of opportunity to improve – me as a rider and mechanically with the snowmobile. We’re in a good place. Obviously, I’d like to be leading the points but it is what it is. I’m excited about the rest of the season and all the work that’s ahead of us.”

Tucker’s 2017 merchandise is here!

Tucker Hibbert is releasing his 2017 official merchandise line just in time for the new snocross season. Rooted in his passion for his fans, this marks the seventh year the snocross champion is offering uniquely branded clothing and accessories at the races and online through his official merchandise store.

“From day one, the main focus of this program has been to give me a chance to connect with my fans,” Hibbert said. “Having my merchandise booth at the races has been a big highlight for me. For a lot of fans, seeing me on the track isn’t something new but getting to hangout with me at my booth after a race, with my helmet off, is a new experience. Hearing fan’s stories about the race, seeing the excitement on kid’s faces and meeting a whole family decked out in my gear is exciting and rewarding.”

New for 2017, Hibbert is introducing a dedicated Team 68 logo and incorporating his team’s sponsors on key pieces to truly give fans the official look of their favorite snocross rider and team. Many of the items you’ll see Hibbert and his crew wearing at the track.

“Year-after-year, fans tell me they want to wear what we (the team) wear,” Hibbert continued. “It’s important that every fan feels connected and a part of Team 68. That’s why we’re doing this new Team 68 logo and adding more sponsors logos – to give fans the official team look.”

Fan favorites are back with fresh looks and new items have been added to provide a wide range of clothing and accessories for every Hibbert fan. The 2017 line continues to carry a strong emphasis on quality products at an accessible price.

“We take the same approach to this merchandise line as we to do our race program,” Hibbert said. “We’re focused on making products that people are excited to wear and made to last.”

The Tucker Hibbert online store features same-day shipping to customers in the US, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Free shipping if offered on domestic orders of $68 or more.
