Triple Crown, SnoX Practice Track & Hillcross: In The News
CLARKSBURG, Mass. (Nov. 12, 2014) — Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) are pleased to announce some exciting news regarding our season opener in the Great State of Maine.
On January 10-11, 2015, teams from the Quebec-based SCMX series will compete against ECS riders in Round 1 of the Triple Crown Series. The Paul Bunyan International Sno-X will take on a truly international flair, as this rivalry delivers some of the best ski-to-ski racing ever seen in this region.
Even though the Triple Crown Series does not award points towards the season-long battles, this high-stakes event pays a healthy purse and offers riders an extra chance to compete. Just as in recent years, the Triple Crown Series will include classes for Pro Open, Pro Lite and Sport riders.
"The Triple Crown Series has been a huge deal since its inception a few years ago," ECS General Manager Shawn Achilles said. "SCMX has several fast riders, but our athletes train hard so they can go out and beat them. This rivalry is friendly, yet it creates a chance to earn bragging rights on both sides of the border and snag a nice payday as well. I think the 2015 edition will be very exciting."
Round 2 of the Triple Crown Series we be held in Louiseville, Quebec, while Finals in all three classes will be run on Friday during the prestigious Ski-doo Grand Prix of Valcourt in mid-February.
