Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 12, 2008-The best racers around the world will converge at the 12-Hours of Pont de Vaux World Championship scheduled for August 23 - 24, in Lyon, France.

This year, more than ever, Polaris is reinforcing its commitment to the sport of ATV racing with four Polaris teams competing in the historic race including one team from the USA and three French teams, all racing the wicked-fast Outlaw 525 S.

Doug Eichner, multi-time world and national ATV champion and record holder of seven wins and ten podium finishes at the12-Hours of Pont de Vaux, will anchor Team Polaris USA. The team also will feature the talents of Polaris rider Dana Creech, well known for his Division 4 Freestyle Championship and Clear Channel Stadium Series MX Championship. GNC MX Pro National Champion, eight-time GNC Pro-Am National Champion, former Pont De Vaux top-three winner, and former Eichner teammate, Travis Spader will be charging hard as the final member of Team Polaris USA.

Polaris France will be represented by three French teams. Successful MX Racer Vincent Broyer, French MX National Champion Mickaël Revoy and Thierry Chevrot will make up the first French team.

The second French team features Enduro Star Jean-Hugues Adam, Pascal De Palma and Franck Allart.

And, returning again to demonstrate their superiority in the Women's Division, Adeline Martin and Betty Kraft will constitute the third French team.

“Polaris is excited about the level of participation at this year’s event and we look forward to a successful race for all the teams,” said Eric Nault, race team manager for Polaris Racing. “We thank our World-Class Racers and sponsors for helping put together the most-competitive teams of racers we’ve ever had at the historic 12-Hours of Pont de Vaux.”
