The 2015 racing season hasn’t even officially started and it’s looking like it’s already Bibi Carmouche’s year. Riding a Bullett-hulled SX-R, sporting support from support from some of the most iconic names in jet skiing – Jettrim, JetPilot, Skat-Trak, and Oakley to name a few – Bibi has bested her challengers from the starting band to the checkers, and now has one more massive win to announce.
The current Pro Watercross National Champion and previous IJSBA World Champion will be the first woman to be featured exclusively on the cover of Hot Products’ 2015 product catalog. The second woman ever to grace the catalog’s cover – sharing the honor with Mrs. Rachel MacClugage – Bibi’s iconic black-and-neon pink color combination also heavily influences the book’s design.
While we’re sure to see an official statement and press release from Hot Products, we didn’t want to sit around and wait to share the good news. The Watercraft Journal got a chance to talk to Casey Mauldin of IPD Graphics who beamed with pride:
“We are so proud of Bibi for making the cover of the Hot Products catalog, she is changing a lot of things right now for women in the jet ski racing industry! Not only is she the first women to be featured exclusively on this iconic cover, but she is setting a great example to other women regarding what they can accomplish, and setting the bar much higher in a time when we need it most. As thousands of these catalogs get printed and distributed onto dealers counters around the world, this gives the opportunity for girlfriends, daughters, mothers, etc, to be inspired to want to be more of a part of our great industry. Much props Bibi, you’re our hero!”
We too agree that there’s no arguing with the scoreboard, and Bibi has clearly risen the ranks to become one of the most influential young women in jet ski racing in recent years. We look forward to seeing more from Ms. Carmouche as she pursues her goals of world domination!
