So Royal fans? Was that not hands down the best sledding season we've had in years? With record snowfall accumulations across the country everyone was able to take advantage of one of the longest winter seasons in quite some time. Spring is here though with the warm summer months soon to follow. The Royal team is gearing up to continue the Ride on two and four wheels. It's been a slice, Old Man Winter, but like most people we're glad you're turning in until next year.

This year the Royal/Hall Racing Snowcross team competed in both the Pro Lite class of the ISOC series south of the border and in the Pro Open class of the CSRA series here in the Great White North. Dylan had some successes both sides of the border, even achieving a CSRA Pro Open win, as well as a few podium finishes.
Royal Athlete Dave Joanis made the jump this year to the top rung of snowcross, in the ISOC Pro Open series. Dave won Rookie of the Year and nailed some podium finishes along the way. Dave also brought his Christian Brothers Arctic Cat and ran some CSRA races, gathering up many wins along the way. Between Dave, Logan Christian and Dylan Hall, Royal Distributing backed sleds were on the podium at every round they showed up at, most times on top!
