JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Snocross National Tour will make its way back to Jackson after an opening weekend in Minnesota on November 23-25.
Rounds 3 and 4 of the ‘greatest show on snow’ will take place at the base of Snow King Mountain in the Phil Baux Park ballfield area as it did last year. The big change and the big news from last year is the retirement of all-star rider Tucker Hibbert.
Hibbert now lives in Minnesota but grew up in Driggs, Idaho. He was a fan favorite and the guy to beat in snocross every year. With Hibbert’s retirement after 11 championships, the field is wide open.
Kody Kamm was the man chasing Hibbert all last year. He currently sits 3rd in overall points after rounds 1 and 2 in Duluth, Minnesota to start the season. Lincoln Lemieux also looks strong again this year, and watch out for Elias Ishoel. After a team change (he now rides for Boss Racing), the #200 Skidoo is flying off to the top spot in the 2018-19 points board.
Points leaders at the early going:
- Elias Ishoel #200
- Lincoln Lemieux #13
- Kody Kamm#53
- Megan Brodeur #31
- Taven Woodie #873
- Malene Andersen #93
For the women, all eyes will be on local Taven Woodie, 15, who was named Rookie of the Year after turning pro last year. Woodie has started this season’s campaign in second place in the points standings after a strong showing in Duluth.
Brother Kaden Woodie (#980) sits 4th in the Sport division standings.
Racing at Snow King gives fans a chance to get very close to the action as the tracks winds its way around spectators with 30-foot jumps and plenty of side-by-side racing.
“Snow King is excited to host the Snocross National again for the second year in a row,” said Snow King General Manager Ryan Stanley. “We are proud to offer local and regional families and individuals the opportunity to view and meet some of the best racers in the nation and see this thrilling competition.”
Snow King Mountain is donating 5% of profits from the Snocross National to benefit the Doug Coombs Foundation which provides an opportunity for low-income children to participate in winter activities in Jackson Hole.
The weekend will feature plenty of thrilling action with fun for the whole family including pro racer poster signing sessions, free kids snowmobile demos, and a wide variety of vendors to check out.
