Liquid Militia Team Rider’s Hit Panama Beach FL

CHRIS MACCLUGAGE:

West coast to the left coast Chris MacClugage is taking on the Watercross National Tour. Chris arrived with his family early a few days prior to the national tour kicking off, to relax and settle in. As the days go on, and race day is approaching Chris is ready to go beast mode, and that’s what he did. Saturday, heat 1 kicked off with Pro Ski GP. Chris was ever so focused aboard his very familiar Bullett Hull, bringing him home the win for moto 1. Sunday all eyes were on the the Pro Ski Gp class the amount of power these ski’s have, and the abilities they athletes have is just amazing to watch. Ready, set, go and Chris was off again. He worked the track and was able to sail into the checkered flag straight to the podium with a 1st place overall finish in Panama City Beach, FL.

Chris also raced in Pro-Am Ski Stock aboard a Yamaha Super Jet and pulled out 3 wins in all motos for a 1st place overall finish in this calls as well.

JUAN RADA:

Traveling from Canada to FL what a journey we had getting to the 1st stop of the National Tour. We set out with the huge JetX Racing Rig, this thing is a beast but boy does it get the job done. We arrived in Panama early to get settled in. The next day we set up shop and got our pit dialed. I competed in R/A Stock and had some good laps and a great time just being in the ocean racing. I was able to take home a 2nd place overall in my class. I’m very happy with the outcome of this race my Kawasaki was hooking up and I had a blast. Next stop for me is Pensacola, FL.

BROCK AUSTIN:

Had a great weekend of racing at the first stop of the Prowatercross Tour in Panama City, Florida! I took 2nd in my heat race in Pro Ski GP after a horrible start and coming out of the split in 7th I started charging my way through the pack and finished the moto in 2nd! Had another rough start in the Pro Ski GP main event but I snuck inside of everyone and came out of the split in 4th and stayed charging on 3rd place the whole race but I couldn’t quite get past him and I didn’t want to risk crashing and falling to the back of the pack. But all in all it was great weekend and I’m very excited for the next stop this weekend in Pensacola, Florida!

BIBI CARMOUCHE:

The first round of the ProWatercross tour was a very exciting one for me! I have been training harder then ever and I decided it was time for me to step up my game and sign up to race in the Pro/am Ski GP class. For these first two rounds in the ocean I only brought my SXR Limited ski to race, in hopes that the water would be rough and the speed of the boat wouldn’t be too much of a factor.

This year the Pro/am ski GP class ended up doing qualifying heats and a last chance qualifier (LCQ) in order to make the final main event. In my heat I was running in a qualifying position when I made a stupid mistake on the front stretch and went swimming forcing me to go into the LCQ on Sunday. To my disadvantage, the LCQ was one of the first races of the day and the water was as flat as a lake, I rode my limited ski as hard as I could and ended up in third place, just one position away from making it to the main. Even though I didn’t make the main event, I was extremely proud of my performance and the fact that I got out there on the line with some of the top pros in the world.

The rest of my classes went excellent as I won all 6 of my motos winning the overall in Women’s Limited and Amateur Limited. Overall I felt like I had a great weekend and I am looking forward to doing it again next weekend in Pensacola, FL

PETE ZERNIK:

I had a killer time competing at the Prowatercross Tour in Panama City, Florida this past weekend. My ski had some problems that hopefully by this coming weekend will be worked out. I felt good committing to the tour this year. I enjoy racing and the whole scene behind the Jet Ski Races. I’m hoping to step it up with my ski running strong and have some fun. I am looking forward to the next stop in Pensacola, FL.

Jetski Racing World Finals Team Update – Lake Havasu City, AZ

Was a wild weekend in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We had a great time hanging with the team, family and friends old and new.

CHRIS MACCLUGAGE #30:

This year I competed solely in the Sport class at World Finals. I didn’t want to race with the pressure I had in 2013 to win the Ski class. My primary goal was to enjoy myself and relax a bit more this year in my hometown of Lake Havasu City where the World Finals are held each year.

I set out to win the Sport class and I did! It was by no means an easy race however. During the first moto, while I was leading the race, I fell off my race boat and dropped all the way back to the absolute last position. It was time to work my way back up to the top.

That did it for me. Just what I needed to gain a deeper focused determination, I wanted this race, I wanted to produce at World Finals. After a bit of fiberglass warfare I came back to third place position.

Now, facing the second moto, I holeshotted once again but lead wire to wire down the line! The Monster Macc Racing, Bullett V2 Wave Blaster worked really well from turn to turn and accelerating strong in the open stretches. Such a great boat to ride, making this a fun competition for me! Just what I needed.

We had gained 4 miles an hour over the 2013 set up we previously enjoyed, so the Blaster was really fast this year. I was confident in my skills heading into the competition even though I had not focused exclusively on the Sport Class. So much so was this team commitment to excel, that I would put her into the Winner’s circle!

I finished with a 3rd place and a 1st place finish from the two mottos. When those two places were added against my competitors, this put me in a 3 way tie. Seeing that I won the last moto that singular advantage gave me the overall win and the World Championship title.

It has been a great year for Macc Racing. To head into the winter race schedule as a World Champion comes with the dedication of many people. I want to thank you Rusty Gewecke for building one great boat for me to ride, my lovely wife Rachel and our kids for their everlasting support!!!

For the 2014 IJSBA World Finals I raced Amateur Lites, Pro Am Lites, Amateur Open, and Salom. This World Finals was a rough year for me. I ended up not qualifying for Amateur Lites and could not get good starts. But I qualified for Pro Am Lites and placed 14th overall even though I did not finish the last moto. In Amateur Open, I had to go to the LCQ because I got ran over in my heat. I won the LCQ and ended up placing 10th overall in Amateur Open. In salom I placed 8th overall. Besides the racing I had a ton of fun hanging out with friends and family even got to see Vanilla Ice. Before the end of the year I am going to race the El Tour De Tucson and a 24 hour Mountain Bike race, while racing dirt bikes on the side. Could not do it without the help from Liquid Militia, Macc Racing, Ryno Power, Jettrim, K&N Performance, Burn Industries, Bullett Racing, and my parents.

I had technical problems that took me out of my Amateur Lites class then ended up fighting my way through a tough pack and working through some late night wrenching missions to defend my 3rd in the world title in that class. Last and not least I charged my way though vintage 550 and came out on top during both motos to win the world title. On the monday after I participated in Chris Fichettis Aqua Moto X Preview Event. A group of us riders including Zack and Jake Bright, Tanner Thomas, and I lined up to go big off a double boat v wake. I took 2nd place taking home over $300 of a $800 cash pot fund raised by the sponsors and spectators there.

ian-roberts-profile-1Going into the 2014 IJSBA world finals my goal was to finish top 5 in pro ski open. After winning and finishing on the podium at several races throughout the year I was feeling pretty confident. Things don’t always go as planned though as I was plagued with numerous mechanical issues on race day. I squeeked into the main and tried my hardest to resolve the issues, but was not successful. I chose to jump on my practice boat which was at least 10 mph slower than most of the boats I was competing against. Lucky for me the wind picked up before the 2nd and 3rd Motos giving me less of a disadvantage with some really rough water conditions. Overall I was able to put an 8th place finish together bettering last years finish of 9th.

Seemed like luck was not on my side at this years finals, but I learned a lot and was still able to come out in the top 10 in two of my classes. On Wednesday I raced classic two stroke limited and was hoping for a top three finish, unfortunately I ended up getting hit pretty hard in the second moto and finished 7th overall. Friday, I was excited to race in the Amateur ski open class for the first time, but during the qualifier my ski died on the line and I was forced to race in the LCQ, and with another bad start I didn’t make it to the main motos. On Sunday the Pro/am Womens races were extremely exciting, it was awesome being able to line up next to some of the fastest women racers around like Tera Laho, Emi Kanamori and Yukiko Kume to name a few! The second moto was wild with the random wind that picked up and created surf like conditions on the track, I was running in third place in that moto but the judges ended up making a call that docked me a lap and moved me down from 5th overall to 8th. I am extremely happy with my performance and ready to make some changes for next season!

Huge thank you to all my sponsors for the support throughout the year!

“Team Cup The Balls” which included, Liquid Militia Team Rider Zack Bright and friend of LQM Casey Hogarty made it to the final round but lost by one cup against “The Mad Haters”, Havasu locals.

“We trained hard. We made all the way to the final. We got 2nd place. Which is my normal finish anyway. Casey was a great teammate and really pulled us through to the end. Team cup my balls just needed to sink that final ball and we could have been the champions of the world. THE WORLD!,”said Zack Bright.

Ryan Decker ended up with a 1st in Am Open and a 7th in Pro Ski. Ryan has been putting a lot of practice time on his skis even more since graduating from High School a few months back it’s giving him some time to even pick up a new Rickter and get into some trouble with the freeride community.
