Backcountry Snowmobile / WaterX Snowmobile
Thanks to my father, being a “motorhead” was no option in our family. Powersports is all I have known since before I could walk. As my family and I have always rode snowmobiles, at 14 years old my dad and I took this sport to a new level. Upgrading our trail sleds to backcountry snowmobiles. I am now 22 years old and my father is my best friend because of this sport! What motivates me is keeping up with the guys. Seeing how much bigger and stronger they are, is always a push for me to do what they can. While also working full time I have been able to ride half of the 122 riding days on the east coast. With that being said, I was unable to take the entire summer off. Last summer I was given the opportunity to join a ladies clinic for water cross racing snowmobiles! This experience gave me the knowledge needed to buy a waterx sled and start a new hobby. My first race I took first place in Beginners Oval and my second race I took second place in Amateur Oval. The love I have for both of these sports is simply from the adrenaline rush and also being a woman riding with mostly men. It is intimidating, but it is the best encouragement to continuously work on my skills. Thanks to my sponsors for making this happen, I can’t wait to continue excelling in both backcountry riding and waterx racing!
