Since Dad, Travis, is very busy managing projects for Hoffman Construction during the warmer months; snocross racing naturally was the prefect fit for the Giese family. After receiving 120 Arctic Cat snowmobiles for Christmas when they were just 6 and 4, brothers Landon and Lane quickly had enough of riding in the fields and wanted to go “win races.” Dad did a little digging and soon he had Landon signed up for his first GNSS Race in Turtle Lake. After learning how important it was to keep the sled upright and stay on the race track, Landon went home with his first ever snocross trophy. A racer was born. After seeing the gigantic trophy from Eagle River and how much fun older brother was having, Lane couldn’t stand it and begged his Mom to let him go racing too. Hesitant for her children’s well being and safety, (the waiver was scary), Mom (Robin), eventually joined their quest for speed and signed Lane up.
It wasn’t long and Dad was speeding up their sleds, ever so slightly at first, so Mom wouldn’t notice. And they were hopping on bigger and faster models. Soon both boys were moving on from Improved Stocks and racing Pro 206, 200 Stock, and Transition. Younger brother, Lochlan (6), was old enough to join the team last year and makes up the 3rd L in L3 Racing. Now we eventually might add an E for baby sister Elowen (2), but for now she is happy being a Princess.
Landon is currently a 2x back to back National Champion on the 200 Stock as well as a GNSS series, World, and State Champ on the same sled. He has really set the bar high the last two years for the rest of his competitors. He has earned many National podium finishes in the Nationals where he even got to do live interviews. He has grown so much throughout the last 6 years racing and is quite an incredible young man. This season he plans on working on beating his friends on the transition and letting a new group, including both young brothers, take over the 200 Stock. He really enjoys playing on his Jr High Football team as well as watching football, raises chickens, works with both Grandpas as their right-hand man, loves to read and take in all the information his brain can hold, takes care of his new puppy, and hangs out with friends and family.
Lane is also starting his 6th year racing and is a 2x Pro 206 World, GNSS, and State Champion. He’s been a rocket on the 206 that no one can catch, earning him the nickname, “Fast Lane.” He has also had success on the 200 Stock placing 3rd and 2nd in National Points the last two years. He always has his brother turning his head to see if he will make the pass. Landon and Lane racing side by side has everyone on the edge of their seats, and is a favorite of race director Scott Biese who always jokes about them while announcing races. They don’t know it, but they have fans all over the country. Lane will also be mastering his skills entering his second year on the transition sled. In the off-season Lane can be found swimming, building things, yes with real power tools, playing sports with his brothers and friends, working out, drawing, taking care of his puppy, and being Mom’s “go to guy.”
Lochlan is super excited to be in his 2nd year racing and getting a new 200 Stock this season. You can find him anywhere at the track, he will be the handsome friendly little guy with the captivating smile on his face. With his big heart and personality, it’s no wonder that everyone that meets him is smitten. Cannot wait to see what crazy adventures are in store for him this year. Loch is an endless bundle of energy when he’s not on the racetrack. He keeps busy playing sports with his brothers, working with his Dad on Grandpa’s farm, inventing things, riding bike, swimming, playing whatever his little sister tells him too, drawing and writing stories.
L3 racing and the Giese family are very thankful to be blessed with the opportunity to see the country while being a part of a wonderful sport we love. We cannot thank our sponsors, race family, and all who work so hard, without you none of this would be possible. Thank you!!!
