Ski-Doo X-Team Snocross racers capped a historic season with points championships in Pro, Pro Lite and Pro Women’s classes, along with several amateur championships. Led by Elias Ishoel’s Pro points championship, Ski-Doo Pro level riders claimed 82 podium finishes with 24 wins on the season.
From the season opener in Duluth, Minnesota, the points leader’s red plate has been affixed to Elias Ishoel’s Ski-Doo. It stayed there all the way through Sunday’s final round in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where he captured his first ISOC Snocross Pro points championship along with a win in the season finale. On the season, Ishoel finished with five wins among 11 podium finishes. He and his BOSS Racing teammates and crew were honored with the “Team of the Year” award at season’s end. Ishoel also took home the Pirtek Performance Award as the fans voted him their favorite racer on the season.
Adam Renheim (Warnert Racing) had a career best weekend that featured three Pro races, and he took the checkers Saturday night after overcoming a get-off on lap 4 of the final. He timed his run through the joker lane on the last lap to hold off a hard-charging field to claim the top of the box. On both Friday and Sunday, he finished second.
Hunter Patenaude (Scheuring Speed Sports) claimed victory twice on the weekend to secure the overall Pro Lite season points championship – his first in the Pro level classes. The Vermont native never finished out of the top two in the final nine rounds of the season, taking six wins in the process.
Ski-Doo Pro Am Women’s racer Megan Brodeur (Anderson Racing) had her sights set on defending her overall championship from the first green flag in Duluth. In Friday night’s final, she captured her second consecutive overall points championship.
Ski-Doo’s Jordan Lebel (Boss Racing) won three overall championships throughout the season, taking overall points titles in Sport Lite, Jr. 14-15 and Jr. 16-17 classes.
