Sledhead 24/7 has gone back in time in order to create an awesome short video of the history of snowmobiling! Watch as the sport evolves over the past 60 years from its farming roots into a recreational sport for the whole family and then finally into the adrenaline-pumping daredevil racing and stunts we get to enjoy today, first introduced by the good ol’ Polaris Thrill Team!
“XP1K2” is a seven-minute onslaught of intense off-road road action, set in a massive 600-acre forest near Mt. Baker, Washington. The video stars Off-Road Racing Champion RJ Anderson, driving a custom Holz Racing built Polaris RZR XP 1000 Side-by-Side (SxS), complete with a Polaris ProStar® 1000 Muzzys Performance engine and custom Walker Evans Racing shocks. The “XP1K2” crew, including Tony Vanillo and his team of dirt and ramp engineers at the Off-Road Management Group, transformed the remote wooded location into a stunning array of creative obstacles, which included more than 20 natural terrain and man-made works of (terrifying) art. Spoiler alert – RJ Anderson reclaims the world record for a distance jump in a SxS – and does so by clearing a death-defying 100-foot gap!
More than a year of planning went in to the development and execution of the “XP1K2” campaign. It took the build team of 10 more than a month to carve out the heart-stopping playground as multiple obstacles featured hand built “ladder trail” which required two to three days each to weld, cover in wood and secure safely. The Mad Media crew of 40 then spent 14 days on location battling wind, rain, mud and fog to capture each of their incredible imagined obstacles.
Happy #FourWheelFriday! Here’s Nicholas with the muddied-up 2015 Polaris Sportsman Ace 570 demo unit earlier this month during one of our ATV Ride Club events at KBmoto. Getting it dirty was definitely more fun than cleaning it afterwards!
Last Tuesday we took Buffalo Bill’s players Lee Smith, Chris Hogan, and Erik Pears out riding on the trails of KB Moto…and we had a muddy blast! Thanks to everyone at KB Moto and of course everyone who joined us on our ride, check out some of the photos below
Team Polaris swept the Blue Water Desert Challenge this weekend in Primm, Nevada! Congratulations to Brandon Schueler of Jagged X for the win and to Branden Simms/Lone Star Racing and Scott Kiger/Coastal Racing for rounding out the podium.
This past Saturday, October 4 we invited our close friends, customers, and members of our ATV Ride Club to an exclusive private ride through KB Moto’s 40+ mile, 700 acre trail system! This awesome ride gave riders of all ages and skill levels a chance to experience different types of terrain and challenges (and mud!) for a fun-filled day of riding close to home. Watch one of the videos our very own Nicholas took while driving our demo 2015 Polaris Sportsman Ace 570 below, and check out the rest of the videos on our YouTube page here!
#CampRZR East was last week at Brimstone Recreation…and it looked awesome! Check out the full album here for photos from the event featuring Dierks Bentley, Josh Thompson, Natalie Stovall And The Drive, Lindsay Ell, Ronnie Renner FMX, and 10,000+ RZR riders.
