Lake Nebagamon, Wisc. – Cottew Motorsports is pleased to announce we have added Mitchell Thelen as a full-time member of our ISOC national snocross team where he will compete in the Sport class.
Thelen, who joined the team as a support rider in mid-January last season, became a dominate force in the Amateur class finishing on the podium 11 times, including five wins. “We feel Mitchell has a great attitude on and off the track,” said team owner Jeff Cottew. He has a need for speed and a will
to win. He is an all around great kid and a great addition to the team.”
Thelen, of Paynesville, Minnesota, started the 2014-15 season racing regional and nearby national events. After winning a class final in January at Canterbury Park, the team agreed to transport his sled to the remaining national events where he went on to have great success.
“I’m really excited about next season,” said Thelen. I’m hoping to be able to spend more time at the Cottew Motorsports shop and be able to ride more at ERX.”
With Cole Cottew graduating to the Pro Lite class on the heals of his Sport Championship, Thelen will step up to fill the team spot in that class. “I’m really trying to make top three for the season. There will be a lot of good guys in the Sport class again so I just want to be consistent and come out healthy.”
