Tim Tremblay with the $10,000 winner’s check after beating all challengers in the head-to- head Dominator race.

Valcourt, QC December 1, 2014   Ski-Doo X Team riders opened the snocross season in Duluth, MN at the ISOC season opener in winning fashion with Tim Tremblay of Scheuring Speed Sports capturing his second straight $10,000 prize at the Friday night Dominator race. The annual Spirit Mountain race is always a high energy affair as snocross racers gather from across North America, on what is the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend, for their first taste of competition.

On Saturday, Makita/GMC/NSK/Warnert Racing rider Elias Ishoel stole the spotlight, winning his first ever Pro Lite main event. Ishoel is a 16 year-old racer from Norway who was scheduled to compete in the first three rounds of ISOC national snocross competition.  His impressive rides throughout the weekend might have altered plans for the remainder of his winter. Despite being involved in a first lap pile up on Sunday that took him out of podium contention, he fought back to an ninth place finish with another hard charging ride.

The big win added to a weekend of excitement for the Warnert Racing team as, just days prior to the event, they announced a new partnership with Makita Industrial Power Tools and GMC Trucks.

Marica Renheim added to the win tally on Sunday when she scored the Women’s Pro class victory in her first ride of the season for her new team Jimmy John’s/BOSS Racing.  Renheim, who is the defending class champion, made it interesting as she grabbed an early holeshot but then went off course as she raced to the top of the giant uphill straight. It was only a matter of time, however, before the speedy Swede caught the leaders and made her way to the front.

In the final main event of the weekend, young Lincoln Lemieux of St. Johnsbury, Vermont earned his first Pro Open podium with an impressive ride against the world’s best racers, taking a third place finish on his Scheuring Speed Sports sled. Lemieux made his debut with the team as a fill-in rider for Tremblay late last season and is off to a great start in his full rookie year.

The national snocross series will have a one week break before resuming action in Fargo, North Dakota on December 12-13
