BRP Sweeps Podium at Snowshoe GNCC
Racers Take Podium And Top Six Spots In Morning
Valcourt, Québec, June 29, 2009 – The
Snowshoe GNCC race is recognized as the roughest
of the 13-round GNCC championship. The ski
resort backdrop provides rocky, mountainous
terrain, which is a test for both rider and ATV.
Can-Am™ was ready for the test as the first six
ATVs across the morning finish line were all
Can-Am ATVs, beating more than 275 other racers.
Can-Am / Warnert Racing rider Michael Swift took
the overall win aboard his Can-Am Outlander™
800R EFI ATV, continuing his nine-for-nine win
streak in the 4x4 Limited class. Can-Am
Renegade® 800R EFI ATV racer, and Can-Am X-Team
member, Jeremie Dudding, won the U2 class and
took second overall. Dudding's teammate, Scott
Kilby, won the 4x4 Open class and took third
overall on his Outlander 800R.
"It is always a great day when we can sweep a
GNCC podium," says Jimmie O'Dell, Racing Manager
for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. "But to see the top six
spots really is a testament to the preparation
and training our racers put forth week after
week; the Snowshoe GNCC will reward hard work
and maximum effort."

Beasley took the 4x4 Lites win on his Outlander
500 EFI. The afternoon session saw Warnert's
