Christian Brothers Racing Wins Two Pro Points Championships in 2013-2014

Fertile, Minn. (May 19, 2014) – After a season that saw its riders compete at events from Alaska to New York, Christian Brothers Racing has two more points championships to hang on its wall. Other highlights of the season included top finishes at the grueling 2,000-mile Iron Dog race in Alaska, a silver medal at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, an impressive run at the Soo I-500 enduro, three Pro Open snocross podiums and a 1-2 finish at the prestigious USXC I-500 in Minnesota.

Pro Open snocross riders Logan Christian and Dave Joanis competed on the ISOC National circuit placing 6th and 7th in season points respectively. Royal Distributing/Arctic Cat rider Joanis was awarded Rookie of the Year honors on the circuit and landed two podium finishes in one weekend at the event in Deadwood, South Dakota. DOC 360/DRIFT Racing/Troy Lee Designs/Arctic Cat rider Christian’s highest finish was a second at the race in Fargo, North Dakota.

The pair traveled North to compete on the Canadian Snowcross Racing Association circuit’s final two events, March 22-23 in Kitchener, Ontario, and March 28-30 in Barrie, Ontario. Out of 12 Pro Open podium spots available at the two events Logan and Dave claimed seven including three wins and two second place finishes.

Like Joanis, Swedish native and Polarbear Boots/Arctic Cat rider Marica Renheim was new to the team in 2013-2014 and new to the ISOC National circuit, having raced only one event prior to this season. She was a multi-time European champion and brought that success to America, winning every final in her class and the points championship. If not for second place heat finishes at Duluth and Canterbury it would have been a perfect season for Renheim.

Marica traveled back to her home in Sweden where she won Silver in the Swedish Snowcross Championship.

Sport class rider Tyler Adams had a breakout season, leading the points chase in the deep, highly-competitive class for a few events. A crash in a final at Michigan dropped him in the chase and, with no room for error, he was never able to recover the points lead. He ended up 4th in points and claimed multiple podium finishes along the way including a win at Fargo.

Cross-country racing typically rewards experience and history shows that many top riders don’t find success until their late 20s and 30s. Seventeen-year-old (turned 18 mid-Febraury) Zach Herfindahl broke that rule in a big way this season, winning the USXC Pro 600 points championship and taking second in Pro Open points. He took second place in the prestigious, three-day I-500 along the way, just behind his teammate Brian Dick.

For the second year in a row Brian Dick teamed with Eric Quam (Team 23) to race the Iron Dog in Alaska along with CBR riders Ryan Simons and Cory Davis (Team 41) who was fresh off winning a silver medal in the Long Jump at the Winter X Games. Team 23 finished 5th while Team 41 took 9th after running as high as second place just before the final push into Fairbanks. Simons and Dick teamed up to race the Soo I-500 where they were in the Top 5 battling for 4th place before a crash rendered the sled unrepairable. They finished 19th.

Up-and-coming rider Evan Christian on the Finley Motors/Arctic Cat moved up to the Jr. Novice 10-13 for the 2013-2014 season and gained valuable experience racing in the most advanced class of his young career. His season highlight? A clean sweep of a Regional event at ERX Motor Park.


Logan Christian – Racing in Canada was a lot of fun. What a great way to end the season with two wins and four podiums in front of one of our big sponsors, Royal Distributing!

Dave Joanis – I got my start on the CSRA circuit so it was nice to come back and see everyone again. It was also great to get a win in front of all my friends and family and the sponsors who have stuck by me for so long.

Marica Renheim – I won my first race back in Sweden and qualified for the championships, then I went 2-2-1 the final day. I came out second the first two heats and couldn’t find a way around the leader. The tracks here are different than ISOC, they are very icy and I guess I’m not used to them anymore. I’m pretty happy with second place though!
