VALCOURT, QC, June 18, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - BRP hosted nearly 850 Can-Am
Spyder roadsters and more than 1,300 people this past weekend at the
largest BRP-sponsored gathering of Can-Am Spyder roadsters ever
assembled during the sixth annual North American Can-Am Spyder Owners
Event in Maggie Valley, N.C.
"This was the largest Can-Am Spyder Owners Event since we launched the
vehicle in the winter of 2007," said Yves Leduc, vice-president and
general manager, North America division. "The presence of so many
passionate Spyder owners illustrates the health of the brand and the
growing nature of our rider community."
Friday, BRP announced the winners of the customization contest and
European Spyder vacation experience. Danny Webb of Lawton, Oklahoma
with his hand-painted customized Spyder ST was named best-in show by a
panel of BRP judges.
By far, the big winner of the night was Susette Hieronymus of South
Carolina, who, out of all eligible participants at the event, was
randomly chosen to win an all-expenses paid trip for two to one of the
2014 European Can-Am Roadster Owners Events to be held next summer.
"BRP's Can-Am Spyder Owners Event continues to grow year after year,"
Leduc added, "and with more regional Spyder events popping up in North
America and around the world, people are discovering the accessibility
to the open road the Spyder delivers."
Participants were treated to meals and entertainment during the two-day
celebration of the three-wheeled vehicle that has reinvented the way
people take to the open road. There were also demo rides of the new
2013 line-up, including the all-new Spyder ST that is designed for
sport touring - perfect for the beautiful back roads of the picturesque
