Not that there's much comparison but most of the racers I saw today did not have the 4 wheel setup on the rear suspension. And they were jumping just as good as Ski-Doo and Polaris.

Anyways, Blair Morgan took 1st in Pro Stock, with Tucker Hibbert second. Tucker took 1st in Pro Open and Morgan did not crack top three. Morgan did get hung up in the first hair pin corner on the start, and made up substantial ground.

This race was held in Winnipeg, MB, a first WSA Snocross here. :D

Does anyone know if the above WSA TV schedule times are Eastern, Central, Mountain, or Pacific? I think that WSA lists them in Eastern time(at least last year they did)....... Can anyone confirm? Thanks.

Did you get to see the Cat rider hitch a ride on the Skidoo first thing this morning? Gotta be one of the better moments of the day :lol:

Yup. The Ski-Doo racer was none to happy about being thrown out of the race. The commentators comments were funny too, when that racer was talking to the WSA official. Like, didn't you think to stop with someone riding on your hood. :lol:

What musta happened was the Skidoo rider saw Arctic Cat written on his hood and thought "HOLY SHIT I might win this race!" :D

Just a couple things of note. I thought the Doo's looked much better in the big whoops and the Cat's better through the chop. It appeared Cat has more power down the straight. Cat needs to invest in some talent in Pro and Semi Pro. They are basically resting all their hopes on Malinowski in Semi and Tucker in Pro. The REV's were very impressive to me and Ski - Doo definately has the best talent out there right now. I did not find Polaris's red button to do much of anything for them, contrary to what some have said.

Yeah those Polaris sounded like old steam tractors when they were warmnig up the pipe at the line. I did think they were getting better holeshots, but that was in the Semi-Pro class.

For Cat riders, Kent Ipsen is back and looking pretty impressive. He should be a regular to be in contention.

Yeah, Kent Ipsen, he's in my snowmobile club. I've trail ridden with him and wrench for him when he first started racing. In better shape than ever, I wished him best of luck.

Actually Ipsen did not look that strong. Ahmasalo, Kuster, Island, and Nakazawa all looked real good, unfortunatley they are all on Doo's. DJ looks to be Poo's only hope in Pro.

Here is the complete schedule. I live, eat, and breath WSA SNOCROSS ACTION and have been to 5 different national races. I guess that is why my plates are SNOX 1!! :D

:eek: When you look at sport and the semi-pro classes, no Cats at all.... Nothing even in the top 10. 2 races so far. Dissappointing to say the least..

Sport the ratio is like a million Revs to a Cat, shear numbers winning out there. Semi Pro is a combo of tons of REVs and Poo's and few Cats plus the lack of talent. And Pro.........well I have been through that. There are tons of REVs at the SnoX tracks in all classes and they work very well in the big bump enviroment.
