Valcourt: A Golden Opportunity for New England Fans to See Vermont Native T.J. Gulla in Action
Currently third in the Pro Open and fifth in Pro Super Stock standings, Vermont native T. J. Gulla may see the coming races in New York state this weekend, and at Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt in ten days as great chances to close the gap with the current leader and eventually clinch a championship title, if not two. Tucker Hibbert, current leader in both classes, having choose to end his season after last week race in Brainerd, it opens the door for several contenders, including Gulla. One thing is sure: at Valcourt, the 26 years old veteran should again be the American snocross racer who can claim to be living at the closest distance from the world’s snowmobile capital. His hometown of South Hero in the Lake Champlain islands is only 104 miles away from the Québec town. Rock Maple racing driver Derek Graham, if present, would be the second. His hometown of Woodsville, New Hampshire is a short 116 miles south Valcourt.
One must remind that Valcourt is located a short 25 miles northwest of Sherbrooke, Québec, and is one and half hour away from Montréal and less than two and a half hours away from Plattsburg, New York, Burlington or Montpelier, Vermont and Laconia, New Hampshire.
