Winter sports: Swedish Emil Harr historic: Won the AMSOIL Snowcross Championship in the USA

Six-time world champion Adam Renheim has tried. Petter Nårsa, with a WC gold and several WC silvers, as well. None of the Swedish male snowmobile drivers have ever managed to take home the AMSOIL Snowcross Championship in the USA.

On the night of Sunday, new Swedish scooter history was written. 23-year-old Emil Harr, or “The Moose” as he is known in the USA, managed to take home the American professional series.

– It is the biggest thing in scooter sports in the world. It is where the absolute best drivers from different countries can be found. You cannot take any major title, says SVT’s former scooter expert Ingemar Andersson and continues:

– This is scooters’ NHL hockey, scooters’ F1, scooters’ Wimbledon. You can become world champion but then you won’t meet all these drivers.

How big is this?

– Since several have been over (in the USA) over the years but so far have never succeeded, this is huge, he concludes.
