Bombardier Announces Sponsorship of Professional Angler Patrick Campeau

Québec-based bass angler joins elite ranks of Team Evinrude

Bombardier Recreational Products announces that Patrick Campeau of Laval, Québec has been signed as a member of Team Evinrude®. Campeau, a three-time Québec Fishing Champion, has been professionally fishing full time for 13 years and is a widely recognized spokesperson on the fishing scene in Québec. He will be an integral part of Team Evinrude, as the first member to represent Evinrude® direct injection (DI) engines and the new Evinrude E-TEC™ technology, and the Bombardier ATV™ lineup throughout Canada.

"We are proud to add Patrick to our outstanding team of professional anglers," said Ben Lafortune, Vice President, Sales, Boats and Outboard Engines Division. "Patrick is a highly respected and well-known fisherman and outdoorsman in Canada."

Campeau has worked with the Evinrude/Johnson® brands for 16 years. "I am proud to be working once again with Evinrude/Johnson under Bombardier.

"The Evinrude direct injection engines are the best engines on the market today and will help to ensure my success fishing."

Campeau will also have the opportunity to ride and showcase various Bombardier ATV models. For anglers, either professional or amateur, the use of a versatile and reliable ATV is essential in order to reach their favourite fishing areas.
