notice how little there is to the polaris pro-open sleds....no wonder they lost 60 lbs, there is nothing left!

The winner (Tucker) getting mauled by reporters!
The second day of my snowcross experience was quite different than the first. First of all, I want to apologise for not getting more and better pictures, but there was simply no room to move enough to get some really good shots. There was WAAAYYY too many people there! Anyhow, going back to what I said about the Ski-Doo's dominating, I would like to recant that statement. Now that they got the Cat's hooked up and adjusted properly, and the riders have more of a feel for them, they proved to be just about unstoppable!!! GO CAT!! In the final, Tucker won, but not only did he win, but he almost lapped Blair, which was in 3rd place! I cannot even describe how much of a lead he had!! Throughout the day, the Cat's consistantly held the advantage over the other sleds. Polaris seemed to hold strong as the second best followed by the Doo's and lastly the Yamaha. Man those yamaha drivers REALLY take a beating on those sleds!! Wow, it is amazing they can even hold on! The holeshot off the line ALWAYS went to the new Doo's, without fail. Judging by the amount of air they were getting, I would also say that the Doo's were the lightest, too. But no one could deny the lead the Cat's were pulling away with....and the final was an embaresment to the other teams, man that was a beating!! Any thoughts, comment's, suggestions?
