The pandemic may strike the province, but it will not prevent athletes from tackling the moguls and racing at full speed on the various circuits, including that of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt (GPSV).

 

The SCMX Provincial Snocross Championship recently unveiled its preliminary schedule for the next season, and everything indicates that racing enthusiasts will be stopping in the heart of snowmobiling the weekend of February 13th-14th, much to the delight of the organization.

 

“The GPSV team is very proud to be able to help support sport and its athletes,” says Executive Director Véronique Lizotte. The family and authentic values ​​of SCMX are perfectly aligned with those of the GPSV. “

Because sanitary standards and Public Health measures are continually evolving, the preliminary schedule may need to adopt changes during the season. But for the SCMX team, there was no question of giving up competitions.

“Snocross is booming in Quebec,” admits SCMX director Mathieu Buteau. We are forecasting an increase of about 30% in the number of Quebec athletes again this year in Valcourt, as in our entire circuit. The next generation is waiting for you, as are the pros who, for some, have reserved a season for us entirely in La Belle Province, given the pandemic. “

A snocross season in the current context requires many logistics. However, everything will be in place to respect the health instructions and ensure the athletes’ safety. The show will be no less captivating, on the contrary!

“We have the most impressive schedule in recent years,” assures Mathieu Buteau. The third round, which will take place in Valcourt, is one of the season’s most anticipated moments. More than ever this year, we are working with the GPSV team to provide a quality show. Our 125 athletes are already very excited to start the season! “

 

The 39th edition of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt will occur from February 12th to 14th, 2021, on the legendary Yvon-Duhamel circuit. One can expect an exciting spectacle for speed and thrill-seekers!
