     Timbersled snowbike athletes fared well in the first ever X Games bikecross qualifier held at ERX in Elk River, Minn., Dec. 17, 2016.

    Timbersled racers claimed three of the four available automatic qualifying spots with Nolan Heppner taking the win. Jake Scott and Harris Huizenga finished second and fourth respectively.

    This week, ESPN also announced they have invited three additional Timbersled racers to compete at X Games: Pro Extreme Enduro Rider for Redbull/KTM Factory Racing Alfredo Gomez, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Colton Haaker, and fellow Rockstar Energy and Husqvarna rider Ronnie Faisst. These racers will join Timbersled team racers Ronnie Renner, Reagan Sieg, Brock Hoyer, Axell Hodges and Jackson Strong when snow bikes make their inaugural appearance at X Games Aspen on Fri., Jan. 27, 2017.

     “We would like to congratulate all the snow bike racers who qualified for the Winter X Games,” said Chris Wolf, vice president, Polaris Snow Division. “Our representation at X Games proves Timbersled’s dominance in the category and we are very excited about the future of snow biking.”
