Valcourt, QC,September 27, 2011 – BRP’s Gordon (Gordy) Radtke , a veteran of 32 years in the Service department , was inducted into the Snowmobile Hall of Fame in Eagle River, Wisconsin on September 17th. Sickness got in the way of Gordy attending the ceremony, but his three children and good friend Rich Klein were there on his behalf.
Gordon Radtke is a much loved icon in the BRP family, especially to those involved with Ski-Doo snowmobiles. In a company filled with technically savvy people, Gordy has always been one of the best. From purely theoretical concepts to grass roots applications, Gordy has an innate understanding of all things mechanical, at every level. And what makes him so unique is his equal enthusiasm in learning more and in sharing his knowledge. Whatever the question, he answered it in such a way that no matter the audience, from physics professors to the merely curious, we understood.
Congratulations Gordy. Well deserved!
