Tucker Hibbert, one of the top snocross racers in the world, won the
inaugural Jeep Adventure Comp title at the 2004 ESPN Winter X Games. He
bested fellow motocross/snocross competitor Blair Morgan in the timed
event, along with freestyle motocrossers/industry types Mike Metzger,
Doug Parsons, Beau Bamberg, Dave Damangos, Trevor Vines & Todd
Hicks. Jeep, in cooperation with Aspen/Snowmass, had Jeep Wrangler
Rubicons for athletes and media to race up and down Buttermilk Mountain
at the Winter X Games. They raced up the face of a steep ski hill, then
back down through a slalom course.
Hibbert, who also won the silver medal in this year’s Winter X Snocross
event said “Right away I thought of the Clayton Memorial Foundation”.
The Clayton Memorial Foundation, founded in 1989 by Charles and Sharon
Clayton, gives financial aid to motorcycle racers who have been injured
Tucker will now tackle a new challenge in his motorsports career – he
will focus on the AMA 125 East Supercross Series riding for ECC Suzuki.
