Team LaVallee’s Year End ReCap

LONGVILLE, Minn., March 23, 2011 – Beautiful Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI held the final race of the 2010-2011 Amsoil Championship Snocross Series (ACSS). Team LaVallee kicked off the 3-Day race weekend with semi pro rider, Andy Lieders racing the Affiliate class (a joint affiliation between ISOC/ACSS and the Regional Circuits) on Friday. “It was awesome that Lieders qualified for the Affiliate races, we got an early start on testing out the track and he also got an extra day of riding in before the ACSS National races on Saturday and Sunday.” stated co-owner Glenn Kafka

The Results: Semi-Pro Andy Lieders, started his weekend off with a win! On Friday in the affiliate semi-pro race, Lieders was the number one qualifier going into the final and with an awesome hole shot off of the start, he took home a first place win. On Saturday and Sunday, Lieders carried that momentum throughout the weekend finishing 8th in both of his finals. Pro Rider, Bobby LePage worked hard all weekend, with great qualifying rounds in both the pro open and pro stock classes, LePage was ready for a win. Off of the start of the pro open final, LePage found himself mid-pack and with two laps in LePage had an unfortunate off, ending his final race of the season with a notable 14th place finish.

Thank you. Team LaVallee would like to express a huge thank you to all of their 2010-2011 sponsors, it was a great season and we are already looking forward to next year!
