Tour News Colonial Beach, VA
Pro-Am Runabout Open
The 2012 Liberty Cup in Colonial Beach, VA was a fantastic success with the largest rider turn out of the year. Sunday's Pro Am Runabout Open class was a wild affair with Monster Energy Mountain Motorsports Yamaha rider Dustin Farthing rebounding for boat issues to win both motos and take second overall. The story of the day, however, was the consistency shown by Champion Powersports Sea-Doo rider Brian Baldwin. Baldwin went 1-4-2 in his motos and took home top honors this weekend. We had a new face on the podium with Dean's Team Yamaha rider Abdullha Alfadhel putting his Kuwait Airlines boat on the box for the first time this season.
Pro-Am Ski GP
We had another first time winner in the Pro Am Ski GP class in the form of Kommander Industries Blowsion rider David Redinger. Redinger took advantage of a broken exhaust pipe on Jimmy Wilsons Judge Motorsports OptimaRacing.com ski that put him at the back of the pack in the final moto and netted him a third when the results were tallied. Our second place finisher was the wily veteran and owner of the Hurricane Racing Team Bill Haig. Bill had a ton of praise for both of the young riders he squared off against but was very happy standing on the podium again.
We had another awesome freestyle exhibition with both Jeremy Parr and Jason Stoyer going huge. The judges were very impressed with Parr's landings and he was able to transition for trick to trick without hesitation. Stoyer put together a triple helicopter combination along with a flip 360 but that wasn't quite enough to best Jeremy's 29.0 and Parr got the win. Gary Burtka put together a nice 2 minute run that included a back flip and settled nicely in the third spot.
Pro-Am Runabout Stock
Breakage seemed to be the order of the weekend and the Pro Am Runabout Stock class was no exception but Neptune Racing Sea-Doo rider Troy Snyder was able to overcome a fifth place finish in moto one by winning the last two motos for the overall win. Erminio Iantosca picked up a spot in the final moto which put him in the number two spot on his Hydro Turf Riva Racing Sea-Doo. And Dave's Auto Body Kawasaki rider Eric Francis made a late race pass in moto three to narrowly edge out Monster Energy Mountain Motorsports pilot Ryan Hardwick for third.
