Boise, Idaho, December 15, 2016 – Performance Motorsports lighting company, Cyclops Adventure sports, based out of Kent, Washington, has joined the 2017 AMA Championship Snow Bike Series as a supporter and partner. The snow bike racing series is the world’s eminent forum for snow bike competition, featuring nine rounds in seven states, and includes world-class athletes such as: Ronnie Renner, Brock Hoyer, Reagan Sieg and Jimmy Jarrett.
Snow-biking is a relatively new form of winter recreation, where a ski and a lightweight, high-performance track are fitted to modern, off-road motorcycles. Snow-bikes are easy to maneuver, and weigh under 275lbs. and the cost of entry into this sport is relativity inexpensive, and allow a dirt bike rider to quickly and easily convert their motorcycle for use in the winter. This is the first year that snow bike events have run under the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) banner and AMA Motocross Director, Kip Bigelow stated, “The AMA is excited to be getting involved in the new and innovative sport of snow bike racing. We have been watching it with interest for several years and decided that it makes sense to embrace this interesting new motorcycle segment.”
Cyclops owner, Darryl VanNieuwenhuise, a long time single ski rider said, “We are excited to be involved with the AMA Series and to support this wild, new sport at the highest level. Our contingency program will reward money to men and women who win their classes while running a Cyclops lighting system. Connecting snow bike racing to the AMA and their 215,000 members will bring a huge new amount of exposure and respect to the sport and will take it to an entirely new level.” For more information about the AMA Championship Snow Bike Series, and to view the Cyclops Adventure Sports Snow Bike Racing Contingency visit www.amachampionshipsnowbikeseries.com or contact series director Ron Dillon at (208) 573-4255.
