Sea-Doo Ambassador Anthony Radetic Wins Mark Hahn 300 Race

We are excited to share this big news from Sea-Doo about Les Cooke and brand ambassador Anthony Radetic. He was injured in a motorcycle crash, which left him a paraplegic. Prior the injury, he was into downhill skiing and enjoyed the rush. He had a love for the water too, so it was only natural he gravitated toward PWC racing. We met in CA while preparing for the LBCAT 2014 and we’ve followed his career since.

After years of podium finishes, Radetic and partner, Cooke took the overall victory at the 19th running of the grueling Yamaha IJSBA Mark Hahn 300 on Lake Havasu. He also took the win in his class and the crew at Sea Doo is ecstatic!

The conditions were brutal with winds out of the southeast and gusts to almost 40 knots making the waters difficult to navigate. Radetic powered through the nasty conditions and pulled off the first win in the Mark Hahn Race for Sea-Doo since 2008!

Even though Radetic had an issue with a blown fuse at the start that put him 2 laps behind, he managed to overtake the race leader for the win.

Radetic’s fierce determination and endurance got him around the leader during the final lap and he rode to victory. The Mark Hahn is the toughest, longest most challenging PWC endurance race in the world. It’s a huge feat to win this one.

It took Radetic nine years to get this win and he couldn’t be happier. He won it with the help of his pit crew, sponsors, race partner Les Cooke, and his fast Sea-Doo RXP-X Apex 300.  The Apex is outfitted with the Sea-Doo Ergolock System, which kept him locked in so he could keep his eyes on the prize. Congratulations from the team at The Watercraft Journal. We’re stoked for Anthony!
