Recent Snowmobiling News
The 2014 Winter X Games got off to an emotional start on Thursday, opening with Snowmobile Freestyle. Last year, this event unfolded with dramatic crashes, one of which resulted in the tragic loss of four-time X Games medalist, Caleb Moore.
The Winter X Games in Aspen is a week stocked full of some of the most talented action sports athletes in the world, stunning athleticism and high intensity tricks that are simply incomprehensible to the average human being. This could not be truer than across the snowmobile disciplines. These riders hit jumps in excess of 30 feet, ride at speeds nearing 60 mph, contort their bodies mid-air and do it all on machines weighing in the neighborhood of 500 pounds.
It’s almost Snow Season in North America. Brace yourself: Oakley’s Freestyle Snowmobilers are itching to charge into action. Rippers Cory Davis and Heath Frisby – both of Winter X Games Fame – are dropping in with a sick edit from Hybrid Color Films. It’s called Black Sunday. And it’s fitting, indeed.
