The only buoy that matters

Every year the best and fastest personal watercraft riders in the world converge in the middle of the Arizona desert in the oasis named Lake Havasu City, Arizona. This man made lake is part of the Colorado River and has been home to to the IJSBA (International Jet Sports Boating Association) World Finals for 31 years and in 2012 BRP’s Sea-Doo X-TEAM comes in with high expectations after a stellar 2011 event. Last October UK’s James Bushell shocked the racing world by dominating the PRO runabout classes in a manner never before seen on the new T3 hull. With a full year of the new RXP-X in the field, the starting lines at this years event are plastered with the black and yellow of Sea-Doo RXP-X models.

MACC Racing’s Chris MacClugage.


The premier class – and the biggest of the weekend – is the Pro Stock class where Chris MacClugage is the favorite after switching to Sea-Doo for the first time in his 20+ year storied career but will be chased by other X-TEAM riders  Troy Snyder, Erminio Iantosca, Cody Hawkins, James Bushell (racing three classes) and a host of International riders. Pro Stock runs Today (Friday, Oct 5) and we will supply results right here.
