Recent Snowmobiling News
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.
Aspen had been abuzz all week with rumors that Heath Frisby was planning to launch a frontflip during the Snowmobile Best Trick contest, but when Justin Hoyer crashed on his first run during a double backflip attempt suffering injuries to his right arm and leg, spectators wondered if Heath would go through with his plans.
