Whibley has been the most consistent rider in the series so far in 2009, putting the Scorpion MX family of tires atop the podium on three occasions, including the series’ most recent outing at the John Penton GNCC in Midfield, Ohio.
Snowshoe will present a significant challenge for the riders this weekend, with $10,000 on the line for the win. The newly-designed 20-mile layout presents some of the most technically difficult obstacles that competitors will see all season, including mud bogs, massive boulders and a grueling 1,000 foot hill climb. With such treacherous and rugged terrain, the Scorpion MX Extra is the ideal tire for navigating the conditions at the competitive pace needed to run up front. A quality Whibley has shown all season.
“The conditions are going to force everyone to step up their game and run a faster pace,” said Whibley, who holds a three-point advantage in the standings. “I know I can count on my Pirelli Scorpion MX tires to get the job done like they have all season. I just need to keep doing what I’m doing and look at the big picture for the championship.”
