    Arctic Cat's Tucker Hibbert returned to his winning streak at ISOC's Canterbury race January 22 and 23 despite rain delays and starting in 8th position in the Pro Open, according to an ISOC press release.

    At one point during the Pro Open in Shakopee, Minn., Hibbert found himself half off his snowmobile. His hands were still on the handlebars but his feet were dragging on the ground. He was able to kick and jump back on the sled.

    Polaris's Ross Martin was in the lead for most of the race, but riders were bumping bars at every turn. Hibbert was able, with 4 laps to go, to pass Martin.

    At the podium it was Hibbert, Martin and Ski-Doo's Tim Tremblay finishing third.

    On Friday all eyes were on Mike Schultz in the Pro Plus 30 Super Stock.

    Schultz, who was injured last year, had participated in the ERX race but was unable to complete the race. At Canterbury, he was able to finish the race in fifth place.

    During the Super Stock race, Hibbert got off to an early lead with Cat's Dan Ebert close behind in second. At the podium it was Hibbert, Ebert and Polaris's Brett Bender in third.  

    "We're pleased to win all four Pro Classes and one Semi Pro final," said Team Arctic Race Manager, Mike Kloety. "And had we not suffered from a couple miscues in the Semi Pro Stock classes, it looked as though we'd have won both of those. But that's racing, and it's why our riders will return more hungry to win the next one."
