CODY MATECHUK - @matechuk111
This 25 years old Canadian snowbiker has appeared at the X Games three times and has won as many medals, including gold in 2018 and 2019. In 2018, he also got the Pro Canadian National Snowbike Champion title. Motorcycles have always been part of his life, he started motocross racing at only 4 years old and he turned pro in Road racing at only 16 . With time, he has decided to put away his dirt bike to focus on snow. Cody is a real adrenaline junkie, not only does he film crazy jumps and drops on his YETI SnowMX, but he also loves skydiving and BASE jumping, and was even a bullrider for 2 years. No wonder he accomplished the World’s first snowbike BASE jump.
DARRIN MEES - @darrinmees
Darrin is a snowbiker from the state of New York with a lot of passion and strong desire to win. He made his debut at the X Games in snowcross in 2013 but decided two years later to change things up and started snowbiking instead. Finishing 4th in the last two X Games, you will surely see him on the podium in the following years. Plus, this passionate athlete is also a business man, he started his own company called M9 suspension where he develops custom suspension for a variety of motorsports.
TAVEN WOODIE - @twoodie873
When she was a child, she wanted nothing to do with your ordinary girl toys, she decided to ride snowmobiles instead. Part of her family’s team (Woodies Racing), racing is in her blood. She is only 16 years old and is already breaking records. Taven is the youngest to win a Pro AM Women race and is the first female to win the ISOC (International Series of Champions) Rookie of the Year Award. With the goal of being the first female to race in the Pro class, she is only at the beginning of a spectacular career. She is inspiring girls not to give up on their dreams, and to always go further.
YANICK BOUCHER - @yanickboucher
This 24 years old Ontarian made two appearances at the X Games. Sadly, due to an accident, he didn’t get a chance to go to the finals in Aspen in 2019, although he is still the snowbike champion of the Canadian snowcross racing association (CSRA) circuit and is going after more titles. He has a lot of potential and loves to push himself to become better, so with a little more luck next year he will definitely be part of the top snowbike racers.
JACKIE RIESS - @jriess27
She has been a motocross racer practically all her life and has been a snow bike racer since 2017. She has competed in many races of all levels, from local to national. After observing the lack of women in the snow biking sport, Jackie decided to start a community called Snow Bike Girls. She organized different events and maintains Facebook and Instagram. She is a true lover of the sport and is trying to encourage other women to follow her foot steps or should we say her tracks.
MARK WILSON - @wilsonmark772
Mark truly believes that his dream machine is a snow bike. Growing up he spent his time trying out different powersports developing a true passion. Racing since 2011, he is growing faster and stronger every year. You already saw him twice at the XGames and you will definitely see him again, his improvement curve is unstoppable.
HARRIS HUIZENGA - @huizenga46
Riding a motocross since he was 5 years old, Harris eventually started riding a snow bike when his dad, a powersports dealer, began selling them. With already two appearances at the X Games, this young rider is on its way to many wins. His first time at this ultimate competition, in 2017, he managed to finish in the top 10, even though he was the youngest competitor. Harris spends most of his time on the tracks practicing and learning new skills. He is truly passionate about the sport and encourages others to try it out.
