     Timbersled announced a new snow bike race team and contingency program. The race team includes five legendary athletes and the contingency program is the largest in the industry, offering nearly $44,000 in payouts.
     
    Famed racers Ronnie Renner (pictured, right), Reagan Sieg, Brock Hoyer, Axell Hodges and Jackson Strong will be aboard Timbersleds when snow bikes make their inaugural appearance at the 2017 Winter X Games Aspen in January.
     
    “Ever since Timbersled created the original modern snow bike architecture, we have worked hard to find new ways to promote and grow the sport. Our A-List roster of athletes and unprecedented contingency program is the next step in that progression,” said Chris Wolf, vice president, Polaris Snow Division. “Seeing snow biking go from being a very niche interest to being center stage at the Winter X Games shows the increased interest and popularity of the sport.”
     
    Leading up to the Winter X Games, Timbersled will have several other race team members competing at the X Games Qualifier on Saturday, Dec. 17, and at the AMA Snow Bike Series Kick Off on Sunday, Dec. 18. The team includes Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Colton Haaker and fellow Rockstar Energy and Husqvarna-supported rider Ronnie Faisst. Both events are held at ERX Motor Park in Elk River, Minn.
     
    The new lucrative, new race contingency program spans nine snow bike racing organizations. For individual events, Timbersled is offering the following program:
     
    Snow Bike Event Pro Class Win
    X Games: $10,000/$7,500/$5,000
    X Games Qualifiers: $1,000
    AMA Championship Snow Bike Series: $500
    ISOC (International Series Of Champions): $500
    RMSHA: $500
    Canadian Snow Bike Nationals: $500
    CSRA: $100
    ECS: $100
    COR Powersports: $100
     
    In addition, Pro Class Racers also can qualify for championship contingency in three snow biking race organizations:
     
    Snow Bike Year End Points Championship
    AMA Championship Snow Bike Series: $1,000
    ISOC: $1,000
    RMSHA: $1,000
