PROFILE ince its inception in 1994, the CSRA (Canadian Snowcross Racing Association) has been a governing body that organizes, promotes, and regulates snowmobile competitions within the province of Ontario and at selected events throughout Canada. The CSRA was created to help racers, manufacturers, and sponsors benefit from the rapidly expanding sport of professional snowmobile racing. The mission of the CSRA is to bring the sport of snowmobile racing to its highest level. The CSRA strives to bring sponsors, racers, manufacturers, and racing fans the most organized, visible circuit in the industry. Snowcross is today’s most popular form of snowmobile racing. With its high-flying

S

aerial displays and compact track design, competitors race around tracks that feature tight turns, banked corners, and a variety of jumps allowing racers to catch “big air” in full view of spectators.

Spanning (9) events from December thru to April, the CSRA travels to key Ontario markets with its travelling race circuit and attracts hundreds of racers and thousands of spectators at each event. Sponsors of the CSRA benefit from a captive audience of race fans totalling over 40,000 for the season.CSRA race fans are a mix of young families whose head of household is between the age of 30 -50 years and single males between the ages of 18s 54 5 years old. Occupations of the head of the household are evenly split between t white and blue collar professionals with w household incomes in excess of $85,000 h per p annum. Amongst all snowmobile’s, CSRA racers, spectators and recreational snowmobile s users, the common thread that links them u together is their love of the great outdoors, t the apparel that they wear, and the t vehicles they choose to ride and transport v their toys with. t

IS #1 nowcross racing is one of the safest forms of competitive snowmobiling. Our officials go to great lengths to present safe and controlled competition. Safety starts before the snowmobiles enter the race course area. Every racers machine is safety inspected by technical staff who inspect steering carbides, studs, lighting, engine kill switches, brake operation, etc. Each rider must wear appropriate safety equipment such as approved helmets and eye protection, upper body protection (Tekvest), shin and kneepads, etc. The race course is designed so the first turn is wide, and on a gradual sweep to reduce the chance of collision as racers approach the first turn bunched together, jockeying for the right racing-line or the “hole shot.” Sharp turns and jumps are

S

often implemented onto the course design to keeps speeds down and to provide a challenging race course for the competition and also to create exciting race action for the spectators at a safe distance from the track, as well as to keep other snowmobilers form entering the race course area.

A minimum of six officials are on the race course at all times to assist racers of an accident should occur. Near the pit area, an ambulance with two additional EMT’s and advanced life support equipment are present at all times. Though everyone’s safety is foremost, we are sensitive to the environment as well; we enforce strict sound level requirements for all the snowmobiles that compete at our events. We pride ourselves on our high safety standards both on the race course and off. If an accident was to occur, our trackside rescue team is ready to assist immediately. We hope you enjoy our Snowcross racing events. If you ride the trails on a snowmobile or ATV remember to ride responsibly. If you want to ride hard and fast, do it at a sanctioned event where everyone is going in the same direction in a safe controlled environment. Also remember to RIDE SAFE, RIDE SMART, and RIDE SOBER!.

ou will see several flagmen standing around the race course the entire race weekend, usually situated near large jumps and corners, as well as, at the Start/Finish line. They will be waving their flags all weekend to signal the racers.‌So what does it all mean, what are they saying?

Y

Here is a quick rundown of the flag colours and what they stand for.

> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >

Green Flag

Red Flag

Black Flag

When this flag drops at the start, RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT! The race has started and the first racer to the first corner has a great advantage.

This means the RACE IS STOPPED. The track is blocked up ahead or somebody has fallen and they need help getting up.

A rolled up Black flag signals a warning to the racer. If the Black flag is being waved, the racer must pull off the track and report to the race director as he or she has been disqualified due to a rule violation..

Yellow Flag This is a CAUTION. Somebody up ahead has lost their sled.There is no passing in a Yellow Flag Zone! The zone is the area between the Flagman and the downed rider or machine.

Blue Flag Get ready for a forced pass. This is waved at the slow racers; get out of the way, the race leaders are coming up behind you, and FAST. This keeps the tempo up by letting the slower racers know they are about to be lapped.

White Flag ONE LAP LEFT. Time for that last lap pass for the win!

Checkered Flag The race is over! Time to celebrate, or time to start working on the sled to make it faster.

with any Motorsport, racing rules and classes are created to ensure competition is not only fair but also exciting to watch, whether it’s a Novice or Junior qualifying heat, or a Pro final. Snowcross racing is the most exciting form of winter Motorsport that you will ever witness. Driver experience, snowmobile engine size and the engines performance define the different Snowcross racing classes. Each snowmobile is classified by engine cc and type of engine – Fan cooled or Liquid cooled – and if it is stock or modified. In most stock classes racers are allowed to add traction products such as studs or carbides, as well they may change shocks, handle bars and skis. If a snowmobile has any other modifications it must compete in the “Open” class of the respective division of the racer.

There are a minimum of (32) Snowcross racing classes at each CSRA race event: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31 32.

CSRA • THE SLEDS

2011 SNO PRO 600 W hile the year-end results in CSRA National competition don’t show it, the 2010 Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600 racer proved to be one of the most dominating race sleds in recent history. Pick a discipline in snowmobile racing, and most likely a green machine finished atop the standings. From another X-games gold medal for Tucker Hibbert and a one-twothree finish at the World Championship of Snocross in Sweden, to a win at the long running Soo I-500 by Cadarette Racing and a year-end championship by Brian Dick in the USCC national cross-country arena; the 2010 Sno Pro 600 delivered the goods. For 2011, the boys and girls hunkered down inside the race shop in Thief River Falls weren’t about to disrupt the good thing they’ve got going with the Sno Pro 6. That means the green machine returns to the track this season with subtle tweaks and improvements to make what many considered the best terrain-racing machine on snow a year ago, even better. Perhaps the biggest and most visible change to the 2011 Sno Pro is the introduction of a new Camoplast track featuring a 2.86” pitch. This key drive sprocket and track change saves 2lbs versus the previous track, with a track pattern similar to the Attack 20 track used previously. Cross-country racers will employ a more traditional 2-ply 1.25” Ripsaw track with a 2.52” pitch. No matter the rubber, both will wrap around a revised Slide-Action rear suspension for 2011. The big change here is the

relocation of the coupling blocks for the rear arm. These adjustments have been moved forward on the rail, creating a more aggressive or quicker moment of coupling than previously. The intent here is to give the Sno Pro 600 improved control during weight transfer, thus improved handling of the sled. Joining this key change are larger rear idler arm wheels to assist in track tensioning duties; new compression and rebound valve stacks inside the rear arm Fox shock offers improved control on g-out bumps as well as high speed stutter. And changes to the front arm shock are specifically for cross country racers, attempting to better hone the larger, square edged bumps that showed up at many USCC races last winter. Other key changes come in the form of durability where new tunnel braces are joined by thicker upper spar assembly gussets. Both bolster the rigidity and toughness the Sno Pro is already known for. Both cross cross-country country and snocross pilots and mechanics will appreciate the move to clear fuel tanks (shipped with an easy to remove black vinyl cover). There is no simpler or quicker method to check your fuel level on race day than with a Sharpie® scribed clear tank.

ABOVE: A new lightweight Camoplast track with Arctic Cat’s unique Attack 20 pattern will debut at the starting line of CSRA this winter. The new track touts a new 2.86” pitch and comes in 2lbs lighter than last year’s 128” rubber gripper.

Tweaks can be found under the cowl of the new Cat racer as well, although you’ll have to be a well-crafted technician to find them. For Snocross racers, the CDI ignition box features a new program for improved holeshots, while the data collection prowess of the Vehicle Instrumentation Pod or VIP, has been bolstered with data now also available for water temperature and throttle position sensor readings. Finally, new engine mount material is said to be more resistant to degradation from gas and oil.

CSRA • THE SLEDS

2011 600 IQ RACE No other race chassis in the past 6 years has logged more miles around a snocross track than the one-of-a-kind Polaris IQ Racer. Making its debut back in the waning weeks of winter in the spring of 2005, the sled has been partly responsible for allowing Polaris to enjoy a taste of its former terrain racing glory days it enjoyed during the late 1980’s. Also playing a key roll in this successful transformation is head chief of all things racing at Polaris; Tom Rager Sr. Building the Polaris program from the ground up with young talent and a solid out-of-the-box racer has garnered Rager and the Roseau based maker a nice string of top podium finishes and year-end championships. In hopes of keeping the terrain party going, Polaris will once again stick with the proven IQ Racer in 2011 and implement key changes to hopefully not just keep up with the Jones’ but beat ‘em.

22

Looking past the color swap of a red pan and black cowl, which looks downright badass by the way, the real change for 2011 is found sitting atop each ski. An all-new front suspension was developed throughout the season last year, tested by select racers in the Open ranks, and refined in the offseason. Featuring new spindles, control arms, bushings and steering post, the front suspension is virtually new from bulkhead to ski, save the returning Walker Evans aluminum piggyback shocks. In comparing last season’s front suspension to the 2011 version, you’ll notice a more svelte spindle with a relocated steering arm that allows the steering rod to mount atop the spindle location. The new location allows the entire system to turn from full lock left to right with less resistance. Key changes to the upper and lower Aarms are two-fold. First, the upper-arm now features an encapsulated bushing which mounts to the top of the new spindle, ver-

BELOW: An all-new front suspension highlights the key changes to the 2011 600IQ Racer. A new spindle, new A-arms and steering post is said to give the 600 Racer improved handling with reduced steering effort.


Racer, opting instead to bulletproof the Rush Pro Ride platform for cross-country competition, or the more traditional IQ chassis for endurance events. According to

Rager, Polaris will campaign a fleet of Rush snowmobiles this winter in the legendary International 500 cross-country race scheduled for late January 2011.

sus the bolt-in heim-joint found there previously. Once again, this change should produce a more linear and lighter steering effort while also allowing the suspension to cycle through it’s range of motion with less potential binding or possible breakage. The other key change is where the lower shock mount is located. In comparing last season’s suspension, it appears the mount has been moved outward on the lower arm, thereby slightly altering the shock ratio, and “softening” the later half of the curve rate. This change along with the move to a Walker Evens Needle front track shock, which replaces the air shock found there previously, should make the IQ Racer more compliant in square edged chop. Unlike the competition, Polaris will not offer a cross-country kit or components for the IQ

CSRA • THE SLEDS

2011 MXZX 600 RS A fter a year of improvement, Ski-Doo made huge strides in returning to the glory the yellow swarm enjoyed during the first half of the decade. With a pair of Pro championships in CSRA thanks to Lee Butler, as well as a Semi-Pro Stock crown courtesy of Sean Macaulay, the boys and girls from Valcourt were back in the winner’s circle. Never satisfied, Ski-Doo teased racers and fans of a much improved 600 RS sled way back in April. Clearly, SkiDoo was sending a message to many of its teams and racers that a much improved race sled was forthcoming, and to be patient and more importantly, avoid brand jumping during the racing silly season. Finally in mid-October, Ski-Doo pulled the wraps off their new 2011 race buggy with hopes it will not only satisfy its legions of racers, but more importantly, garner more podiums. Two main areas of focus for the new yellow race sled were those of improved power and even more so, improved control and bump compliance.

To address the need for more power, Denis Morin, Vice President of Engineering for BRP, gave the orders to develop new cylinders and combustion chambers for what was once considered a potent Rotax cylinder reed motor. While the Ski-Doo R&D department is being tight lipped about specifics, Race Manager Jeff Goodwin is confident in the sled’s ability to deliver more power and in turn, improve holeshots for snocross and improved top speed for the rigors of cross country. At the other end of the sled, the rear suspension of the 600 RS has undergone a complete transformation of its former self. An all-new suspension dubbed the PCX features a completely new rear-arm coupling system and looks eerily similar to suspension designs found in both competitive sleds and in select Ski-Doo Open class sleds last winter. Unlike the long-standing SC-5 suspension found here previously, which touted only rear to front coupling, the new PCX has coupling stops

in place for both rear to front and front to rear communication.

ABOVE: This close-up detail of the new PCX rear suspension of the 2011 600 RS race sled clearly shows the new rear arm coupling configuration. Unlike the SC-5 rear bump stop only rail, the new design features cross shafts both in front of, and behind the drop-link, creating a true “full-coupled” suspension. The benefits will be many, and should be especially fruitful in unpredictable terrain found in natural mogul sections of snocross tracks or wind-swept ditch lines of cross-country.

While the rear-coupling stop is often regarded as having the most impact on ride and weight transfer characteristics, the introduction of a front stop coupler will reduce suspension kickback, especially when sharp edge bumps are encountered at the front of the rail first. Reading between the lines, it also sounds as if the location in relationship to the drop link of the rear stop has also changed, giving the 2011 600 RS improved holeshot prowess, an all-important ingredient in the hard to pass world of snocross.

“We’ve made substantial gains in power,” said Ski-Doo Race Manager Jeff Goodwin during a recent phone conversation. “We’ve closed the gap in terms of power, but perhaps more importantly, we’ve developed a race sled that will have much greater pitch control as well as improved capabilities in braking bumps. Racers in both snocross and cross country will notice these key improvements almost immediately.”

Joining both of these key changes to the Doo racer are much revised clutch calibrations to capture the bolstered power as well as revised shock calibrations at all corners. This year, similar to Arctic Cat, SkiDoo will offer a cross country version in very limited numbers, all of which were allocated to key natural terrain racers. Those not on that short list however can purchase those same cross-country components and create their own MXZX 600 XC RS.

IAIN HAYDEN

By Paul Mason

OTSFF Polaris Hometown: Espanola, ON, Canada OSM - Mason: Can you give us your thoughts on the teams’ upcoming season, and the new Polaris sleds? I. Hayden: We are really excited about the season, its coming up really quick. And as always, Andre, Stu and the crew are all well prepared, and obviously Lee and I are really excited about getting on the new Polaris sleds. OSM - Mason: Tell us who you think will be your biggest competition from both sides of the border? 26

I. Hayden: I try not to label myself as ‘On par’ with someone good, I just want to win. That’s pretty much my mentality. I know Lee will be good, and a guy I’d want as a team mate. We are great friends away from the track, and always have been. Down South, I don’t care who’s going to be fast. I just want to race and do well. I never underestimate anybody. I try to go to each event at 100% prepared, and hope to leave knowing that everything I’ve worked on and prepared for, I’ve accomplished. I don’t want any doubt in my mind that what I gave was my best performance each and every weekend. If I can do that for a full season, that would be excellent. OSM - Mason: What’s the event that you’re most looking forward to this year? I. Hayden: You know, I have a little redemption that I feel I need to get from X games. I’ve been there four times and had a good run in my rookie season. Ever since then, unfortunately, I’ve been injury plagued for that event. So I’m really looking forward to heading in healthy this year. I’m not going to put any extra pressure on racing X cause that won’t do any good. In the back of my mind, I’m definitely focused on going to X Games and doing well. I’m not going to sit here and tell you I’m going to win a gold medal and smoke everyone by 30 seconds, but I’m definitely not going there not to run up front and do well. OSM - Mason: Do you find X-Games bring

un-necessary pressure, or is it really worth the hype? I. Hayden: You know, I think the worst part of it is just hanging out there for three or four days before the race and living in the hype. Trust me that it’s really cool and I’m very fortunate to be a part of it. But when the gate drops, man its all business. OSM - Mason: You have enjoyed racing success since you were very young, can you describe how life has changed over the years for the boy racer; turned man/husband/entrepreneur racer? I. Hayden: I’d say it’s only changed a bit, for couple of reasons. You kind of nailed it... as we all age; there are more obligations, responsibilities, more things to be accountable for, and more things to pay for! You just have to be goal oriented and focused on those goals with no distractions, that’s what will bring you success. It took me a long time to learn that, just focus on the basics. OSM - Mason: It’s interesting to hear you say that, it seems staying focused is a big problem for the kids who aspire to be pro racers. I. Hayden: There’s just so much to do, with the parties and the cool things to do and all the people you meet and the traveling, it’s easy to get distracted. OSM - Mason: How are you balancing family life with racing? I. Hayden: My wife has been great, we met


IAIN HAYDEN

when I was in my early 20’s while I was right in the thick of it, head first, making the jump from racing in Canada to racing in the states for Blair Morgan racing, and living in Winnipeg. She’s been very understanding. I guess those years were the trial years. I figured if she could live through that and still be cool about everything, we would be good. I run a little bit of a different program personally, I don’t really take my wife with me a lot to the races, and it’s not because I don’t want her there or anything, it’s just for me, its work. OSM - Mason: Does your wife ever go riding with you? I. Hayden: Ha! Sometimes. When we first met, I don’t think she had ever been on a sled. I think she was surprised that I, or anyone for that matter, was able to make

28

a living riding a snowmobile! OSM - Mason: Tell us about your new big life adventure in purchasing the infamous MX facility, Moto Park, just outside of Owen Sound Ontario. What made you decide to buy it? I. Hayden: I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t thought about what I was going to do when I’m done racing. You have to start planning and things don’t just happen overnight. I feel like I still have a few good years left in me so I just figured now was the time. Last August, it was actually Carl Bastedo’s (former owner of Moto Park) 65th birthday and I had been teaching down there for years, we were out for dinner and we just started talking, I asked him if he was thinking about retiring. I had no inclination of taking over Moto Park, but it turned out Carl didn’t really have a plan for retirement or the park. He asked me about my future plans after racing, and honestly, I didn’t know. Carl asked me ‘what do you know best?’ Obviously it was racing, both motocross and snocross. Well, by the end of dinner I was like, ‘wow, this could actually work!’ Maybe I could be the guy to take over Moto Park. At the time I was excited but at the same time it was a pretty big deal, so I got together with a group of businessmen and let them work on details while I was racing last winter. By the time spring came around, I was advised that everything was looking good, so the deal went through the end of May and everything worked out great. You know, I really just let the deal unfold. It all kind of just fell into place for me. It’s the direction I wanted to go so it’s cool it all came together and I couldn’t be happier. My wife is from the area so we moved back this past fall and everything is perfect. OSM - Mason: So what big plans are in the

works for the ‘new look’ Moto Park? I. Hayden: Moto Park, it’s a world class facility, with a lot of good people and history, so now it’s just time to bring everything I have, and take it to the next level. They have done a great job over the years but there’s a lot of room for bigger and better things to happen. My big overall goal is, I want people to come to Moto Park because they love to motocross and want a great track with a great facility. There’s a lot of work ahead of us, this is just the beginning. OSM - Mason: As a professional snowmobile racer, your carer takes you all over the world, what has been the most memorable or exciting place a snowmobile has taken you? I. Hayden: On the map, it’s taken me all over the world and I’ve found a lot of interesting spots. I’ve been to Sweden, Holland, Belgium, so really all over the place, and obviously all over North America. There's nothing better than being at the top of a mountain peak at 12,000 feet and you’re just jazzed to be there. It’s like everything in my life has been created from the snowmobiling industry. My core group of people, really good, really hard working and genuine people is what snowmobiling has brought me. Who I am as a person and the relationships I’ve built, business sense, travel, life experiences and just so much, its more than just the snowmobile in my garage has taken me, it’s the whole thing that goes with it, the people I ride with, the people who work on it, the people who endorse it and the people in the trailer where the sled is parked. It’s this group of people, and that’s what’s important. That is definitely where snowmobiling has taken me. OSM - Mason: Thanks for talking with OSM Iain and good luck out there this season.

LEE BUTLER

By Paul Mason

>>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> OTSFF Polaris Hometown: Northbrook, ON, Canada OSM - Mason: The OTSFF Polaris team now consists of yourself and Iain Hayden racing Polaris sleds; tell OSM readers your thoughts on the new team and how everything is coming along? L. Butler: This isn’t the first time I’ve raced for Andre (OTSFF Team Owner), we were together in 04, 05, and 06 seasons, and it was great then as it is now. Everything with the team is coming together really well. Everyone is getting along great and there is a lot of positive feedback from Polaris and our sponsors. They are all really excited about having Ian and I racing together. My team-mate is my biggest competition, so it’s going to be tough, but it’s going to be good. Regardless of who else is out there, I’m just going to race hard week in and week out, and do the best we can. OSM - Mason: How does it make you feel knowing that your team-mate is looking to be your toughest competitor this year? L. Butler: It’s actually nice, you know. With us both having the same top notch equipment, you know it will just come down to the rider... and the starts! OSM - Mason: The teams schedule is packed with racing and events all year, what event are you most looking forward to? L. Butler: Actually our first event of the year was the Toronto International Snow-

mobile, ATV & Powersports Show. It’s not a race, but it is the kick off for our season. It’s pretty cool having everyone together to start the season. X-Games however, is the event I’m looking forward to the most. I’ve wanted to go for a number of years now, and I have the opportunity with this team to go. It’s still up to me to qualify, but as long as that goes well, we will be going to Aspen! That’s definitely what I’m looking forward to! OSM - Mason: Iain has competed at X a number of times, has he given you a heads up on what to expect? L. Butler: He hasn’t really, but he probably doesn’t want to spook me out or anything. It’s a big event you know, and I think it’s kind of something you have to experience on your own. Hayden and I have talked about X over the years, I’ve always had questions about it and he’s always told me what he thought. I’m sure there will be many more questions, after we qualify. OSM - Mason: OTSFF runs a proven championship calibre team, what are you and the team doing for preparation to sustain the high expectations this season? L. Butler: Well with the physical training aspect, I’ve got my own program using the same conditioning coach I’ve had for the last couple of years. Drew Robertson from Evolved Nutrition does an excellent job of getting me ready every year. As far as the team and equipment preparation, the guys

are simply the best at what they do, and are working really hard at it. Stu (Adam ‘Stu’ Robinson) and the whole crew give us the very best equipment out there and it definitely helps us to win. OSM - Mason: As a professional snowmobile racer, your career takes you all over the world, what has been the most memorable or exciting place a snowmobile has taken you? L. Butler: Definitely the traveling has been great, but the most exciting place a snowmobile has taken me is the starting line just before a race. When you’re waiting for the flag to drop, it’s a feeling like nothing else. I think you need to experience it to really understand it. If you’ve never raced, you’ll probably never truly understand. It’s just a feeling you can’t replace. That’s not the farthest place a sled had taken me, but it is the most exciting, and I get to go there every weekend! Awesome! OSM - Mason: Thanks for the interview, good luck this season. 29

DYLAN MARTIN

By Virgil Knapp

> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >

OSM - Knapp: Lets start off with the basics.. Age, class and hometown Dylan: Im 24 years old born and raised in Pleasant Prairie,WI and Im racing CSRA National Pro. ( also look for me on the isoc national tour in semi pro) OSM - Knapp: What have you been doing

30

to prepare for the upcoming CSRA season? Dylan: In preparation for the CSRA season I do a lot of motocross, and have a trainer named Drew Robertson from evolved nutrition. (he's a beast) Also prepare myself mentally. OSM - Knapp: What Kind of background do you have in motocross? Dylan: My brother and I started racing dirt bikes when we were about 9 and 10 or something and didn’t start racing sleds until about 17 and continue to race both to this day. I've thought about going just back to motocross and racing nationals and supercross but with the economy the way it is probably wouldn’t be a smart decision OSM - Knapp: Is moto the only thing you do when your not riding sleds? Dylan: I also like to wakeboard, mountain bike, bmx, hangout with friends and family. OSM - Knapp: How long have you been racing Pro? Dylan: This will be my first year in CSRA Pro. OSM - Knapp: For any of the Canadian's unfamiliar with you, give some background on your Snowcross career so far Dylan: My snocross career; well I've been racing semi pro at nationals in the states for

7 years now. I've had over 10 podiums and one win on the national tour in semi pro. I won another national but was disqualified after the race. Raced X Games once. Won a couple Regional Championships. Eagle river Snocross Jr Championships. OSM - Knapp: I heard you have a pretty fast brother, maybe even a past ISOC champion?! Does that put added pressure on you? Dylan: YUP… Ross Martin 837 I believe he has a few Championships and X Games medals. Haha so yea it does add pressure and I've been trying to follow in his footsteps the whole way but injuries have been a road block on the way. He's always there for me and tries to help me along the way so that’s awesome. OSM - Knapp: Why did you decide to just run the CSRA season this year? Dylan: I talked with Jeff Goodwin Skidoo Race director and he thought it'd be a great opportunity for me. Also just being able to go out on my own and starting something new is always a new adventure and im for anything. OSM - Knapp: What are the differences you see in the CSRA and ISOC?


DYLAN MARTIN Dylan: The differences I know about are just the teams are a bit bigger on isoc and more of them. Tracks look a little bit different from what I have watched on youtube. OSM - Knapp: If you weren't racing what do you think you would be doing? Dylan:that’s a tough question all Ive ever known is how to race and its in my blood so I think at heart I will always be a racer. OSM - Knapp: Have you had any memorable injuries? Dylan: Too Many. Fractured vertebras in my mid back broken ankle, 3 knee surgeries, broken leg,thumb,collar bone, foot. You don’t seem to forget any injuries you have had haha defiantly the back injury will always haunt me the pain never seems to go away OSM - Knapp: When you were a kid did you ever imagine you would be racing sleds and having people like me interviewing you for magazines??!! Dylan: Ever since I started racing I just wanted to do good. I figured this is really what I wanted to do and when you are really motivated at accomplishing your goals that’s just what happens. OSM - Knapp: What are your goals for the 2011 season and who will be backing you? Dylan: my goals for the 2011 season is to

be on the podium every race and make a run at the CSRA Pro Championship. With all the right people and equipment I think we have a good chance. Im riding for royal distributing,rockstar,factory recreation, skidoo and the rest Im not sure about haha also Im racing Isoc ‘National Tour in semi pro . OSM - Knapp: Now is the chance you get

to thank everyone who supports your racing efforts Dylan: I just want to thank my brother, dad, and grandpa mengo for getting me where I am today. Goodwin performance,Jeff Goodwin,Drew Robertson,skidoo and all my friends,family, and fans its been great. Thanks a lot DMARTIN 937

OSM - Knapp: Let's start off with the basics‌ Age, your race class and hometown? D. Joanis: I'm 18 years old. I race Pro and I'm from Cochrane, Ontario. OSM - Knapp: How would you describe last year? D. Joanis: I raced most of the Canadian nationals last year but always seemed to have something go wrong. Last year was defiantly not my best year. OSM - Knapp: How long have you been racing Pro? D. Joanis: This will be my third year racing Pro. OSM - Knapp: You will be running a SkiDoo this year, why the switch and how have you been adapting to the new equipment? D. Joanis: Yes I will be racing for Ski-Doo this year, the switch was just a smarter

34

choice for me and I can't wait to get riding my new Royal Distributing, Rockstar, J&R Hall Ski-Doo! OSM - Knapp: Do you help out at the shop when you are not racing? D. Joanis: Yeah, I work at the shop for most of the summer. OSM - Knapp: Will the fact that you are running a competing brand this year cause any hostility around the shop? D. Joanis: No it hasn't so far, I think everyone is happy for me and will continue to support me. OSM - Knapp: How do you normally spend the off season when you are not riding sleds? D. Joanis: I usually spend a lot of the summer in the gym and I work for my dad at his Polaris dealership. I also try and ride a bit of motocross and I try to get out on my jet skis as much as I can. OSM - Knapp: What are your goals with the new season rapidly approaching? D. Joanis: My goals this season are to win the CSRA national championship and to do well in the ISOC in the semi pro class. OSM - Knapp: It's probably hard to imagine at such an early stage in your career, but what do you see your self doing after racing? D. Joanis: I would like to one day run the dealership, and if that doesn't work out, then definitely somehow stay in the snow-

mobiling industry as much as I can. OSM - Knapp: What close calls or injuries have you sustained battling it out in the Pro class? D. Joanis: I can definitely say that I have had a couple close calls but the main injury that I have had was last year in Kirkland Lake when I broke my leg. OSM - Knapp: Do you use Facebook or Twitter to interact with the fans? D. Joanis: Facebook. OSM - Knapp: What drives you to go out every weekend and bang bars in Snowcross racing? D. Joanis: I've grown up on a snowmobile, I've always loved riding sleds and I think with anything I do in my life I will always ride a sled. I think what drives me to keep racing is I love the competition. I love trying hard and always pushing my limits. Sometimes I do wish that I was good at golf or something like that... those guys got it good! lol OSM - Knapp: Who will be backing you this season in the CSRA? D. Joanis: Royal Distributing, Rockstar, Ski-Doo, J&R Hall, F.X.R racing and Factory Recreation will be backing me this year and I can't wait to work with everyone! They've always ran a great team and I can't wait to be a part of it. OSM - Knapp: Thanks for the interview and good luck on the track this season.

ANGELA VACCHINO

RETIRES

I

started my racing career as a privateer in 2002 racing an Arctic Cat with some local friends. This was the beginning of some of the best 9 years of my life. My first season was not a full year of racing - more or less just trial and error. The second

year, I raced Sport Women and Pro Women for practice, winning the overall Championship. My first year in Pro Women, I raced for Polaris and ran my own program with the help of my family for the majority of the season. Towards the end of the season, Team OTSFF came on board, landing me a ride for the next 3 years. I would like to thank OTSFF for being a big part of my success in Snocross, with great support from Arctic Cat, Andre Laurin and a fantastic pit crew; I was able to win the WPSA and CSRA National Pro Women Championships in 2006 - the only female to ever accomplish this. Following that, I took part in an amazing trip to Sweden for the Title of the

Nations. When I was not riding for OTSFF, I was state side with Christian Brothers Racing, pulling off the double victory. I would like to thank my teammates, Iain, Lee and Peter, for a great 3 years of racing. My accomplishments with OTSFF are: • Two National Canadian Championships • One WPSA National Championship • WPSA Rider of the year • 3rd at the Title of the Nations •2ND place National Canadian Championship As my career continued, I switched teams and raced my last 3 years with Team Shorline Racing and HC Racing in the USA. Thanks to Arctic Cat for a 2 year ride in the USA with teammates Ryan Simons and Corey Davies, this was an experience of a lifetime! During this time, I had the highlight of my career: a Pro Women Factory Ride, taking a 3rd and 4th place overall in the WPSA championship standings. When I stop and think about my 3 AMAZING years with Shorline Racing, not only does winning come to mind but the word “FUN” stands out as well. Big thanks goes out to Grant and Sharon for all their support and for always taking the extra steps to make Team Shorline, THE BEST Arctic Cat team out there; As well, to my teammates, Corey and Cody, it was great to ride with you guys. Another big thanks to my mechanics James and Chris for always taking care of me and giving me a fast sled. My accomplishments with Team Shorline: • Three Canadian National Championships • Two Regional Championships • Sportsman of the year • 2nd place Regional Championship Thank you Team Shorline for everything! Good luck to all the racers this year; I will see you at the odd race for some fun track time. CSRA thank you for many great years of racing. Thank you to my family for the support and encouragement over the years. Most importantly, thank you to all my sponsors for their generous support and for always believing in me. Cheers
