Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead took part in RMSHA's Jackson Hole World Championship Hill Climb on Thursday in Jackson Hole, Wyo.
Mead did a quick run wearing a helmet and camel hair sport coat, according to the Trib.com.
After the competition he said the competition had nothing to fear from him.
"I think the only thing they were worried about is if I came down and wrecked the machines," Mead said.
Mead didn't go as far uphill the as he wanted to because he borrowed a sled, according to the governor.
"Somebody was kind enough to loan me their machine and I thought, 'Whatever you do, don't wreck their machine.' So I stopped while I could," Mead said to the Trib.com.
Mead raced snowmobiles many years ago.
An estimated 10,000 people are expected to attend this weekends event.
