MAGGIE VALLEY, N.C. - BRP hosted nearly 850 Can-Am Spyder roadsters and more than 1,300 people over the weekend for the largest BRP-sponsored gathering of Can-Am Spyder roadsters reportedly 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 of BRP's 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."

BRP announced the winners of the customization contest and European Spyder vacation experience Friday. Danny Webb of Lawton, Okla., with his hand-painted customized Spyder ST (shown here) was named best-in show by a panel of BRP judges.

The big winner of the night was Susette Hieronymus of South Carolina who 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 said, "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. There were also demo rides of the new 2013 lineup, including the all-new Spyder ST sport tourer.

The North American Can-Am Spyder Owners Event also raised $2,500 to benefit the Haywood Christian Ministry, a local organization that helps between 700 and 800 families a month.
