Sea-Doo Racer and Ambassador Anthony Radetic began riding and racing Sea-Doo watercraft to simply quench his competitive thirst. Radetic a former Army Helicopter pilot and now a parapeligic athlete has steadily evolved from a competitor on the grid to consistently landing on the podium. Radetic is invited to compete around the world and finished out the 2023 season on a high note.
