BRP’s Ski-Doo X-Team racer Aki Pihlaja put a rare undefeated weekend together in the Pro Lite class at last weekend’s ISOC National Snocross race, while Tim Tremblay continued his podium streak in Pro Open, finishing second both nights.
In ISOC’s first visit to Winter Park, CO, the weather brought enough cold, snow and wind that racing was temporarily suspended Friday night. But it didn’t bother Pihlaja as he charged to wins in both heats and the final. Then he came out Saturday and did it all over again in a class that’s known for fierce competition so this is no easy task. The wins give him the red number plate with a six point lead in the season championship chase.
Tremblay has been very consistent and very fast—working his way up each of the finals to land second place on the podium at each of the rounds to date. Tremblay combines a hard charging style with a never quit attitude that always produces great results. It looks like a matter of time before he takes the top step.
Other noteworthy results were Kurt Bauerly and Patrick Brodeur finishing second and third in Pro-Am +30, Megan Brodeur taking a second and third in Pro Am Women, Hunter Patenaude taking second in Round 4 of Sport and Jordan Lebel winning both Transition 8-12 and Junior 10-13.
