BRP’s Ski-Doo X-Team racers launched their assault on the RMSHA hillclimb circuit this weekend with strong performances by Blaine Mathews and Jay Mentaberry leading the way.
Mathews claimed the Stock King of the Hill title for the weekend by first winning the 1000 Stock class, and then topping the other Stock class winners in the end of day run off. He also raced to a third in Stock 700 and a second in Stock 800 to establish himself as one to watch the rest of the season.
Mentaberry was able to take the hotly contested Open Mod final on his turbo charged Freeride and backed that up with a second place finish in the Mod King of the Hill run for his best weekend as a pro. At twenty years of age, there’s a lot of time for this kid to perfect his craft.
Other notable finishes included Tom Roby grabbing first in Pro Masters Stock, Trent Handsaker taking the win in Pro Masters Improved and third in Pro Masters Stock. The next RMSHA event is in Afton, Wyoming February 27th.
