Mike has been involved in the sport of snowmobiling since he was old enough to sit upright on a seat, and that's a long time.
Now entering his third decade of competitive racing, he has won races in all four western provinces as well as points championships on both snow and grass. He is also one of the few racers left who does his own port design and builds his own engines. As he would be the first to tell you, "When you weigh more than any of the other racers at 250 + pounds, you have to make big power just to compete!"
Being such a long time racer, he understands the perspective of today's competitors and likes to use his knowledge and experience to assist racers and keep the competition safe, fair and fun for everyone.
Oh ya, he is also our webmaster. So if you like the look of the new site give him a pat on the back next time you see him at a race.
Mike runs an internet consulting business for automotive and powersports dealers and resides in Calgary, Alberta.
