Snowmobile Freestyle Like It's 1999

7/11/2013 2:14:00 PM

Snowmobile freestyle has come a long way since its "invention" in 1997-1998.

This sweet video from 1999 shows some classic names of the era: Chris Vincent, Trevor John, Noel Kohanski and some punk kid named Tucker Hibbert.

The heel-clickers, can-cans and supermans are equally classic.

USXC Cross-Country Snowmobile Racing DVD

7/11/2013 9:21:00 AM

I haven’t yet watched the new DVD detailing the highlights of the 2013 USXC cross-country snowmobile race season, but if the footage in this 90-second trailer is any indication, it will be worth the $20 price tag.

The 45-min. DVD combines great race footage (like the snippet of Team Arctic’s Ryan Simons launching at the I-500 shown on the trailer); racer interviews (including Simons and Team Arctic great Jolene Bute); a tour inside a top race trailer; and many other elements of the USXC racing experience.

Here's a good video of the Arctic Cat Wildcat mod (built by Mark Beyer from STM Powersports) and tuned/driven by Glenn Hall.

I like the footage on the chassis dyno as much as the sand blasting... this machine screams power!
