Tucker Hibbert Biography - Boy Wonder

Tucker Hibbert was born and raised in the cold climate of Minnesota and started riding snowmobiles at the age of two, when his dad first put him on a sled. In 2000, at the age of 15, Tucker became an instant action sports celebrity by winning the gold medal in Snocross at the Winter X Games and taking the checkered flag at several races on the World Snowsnowmobile Association pro tour. Hibbert's natural skills in the air and an ability to pick lines helped him win three National Snowmobiling Championships and pick up several big sponsors while still just a teenager.

Tucker Hibbert Biography - From Sleds To Bikes

Despite being one of the most succesful snowmobile riders in history, Tucker Hibbert decided to trade his snowmobile in for a dirtbike and began racing on the Pro Motocross tour in 2003. Hibbert has had a few top 20 finishes while competing in both Supercross and Motocross races, but he has yet to have the same success on two wheels as he did racing snowmobiles. Tucker's next goal is to qualify for the motocross events at the 2006 Summer X Games.
