s if watching skiers and snowboarders travel at speeds of up to 90 mph isn’t enough, this year’s Arctic Man is adding more adrenaline to the mix. Arctic Man

Extreme features uphill head-to-head snowmachine races, directly following the traditional event, scheduled for Friday, April 13.

The Extreme stages two snowmachines side by side to race in a prepared, uphill course. Each racer will be timed, and the fastest time will win that heat. The first course will be from below the Arctic Man finish line to the top of First Aid. The second day will be on the same course as the first day, and will be regroomed to perfection as there is plenty of snow in the Hoodoos this year.

The top placing riders from each day will race in the finals. All races are timed so the overall winner will be based on best combined times. Register at arcticman.com.

Classes include:
• Womens Class: 600cc and smaller
• Masters Age 55+ Class: 599cc to 799cc • Adult Class: up to 499cc to 600cc
• Adult Class: over 600cc to 800cc
