Two and a half years ago, C3 PowerSports in St. Albert, Alberta, welcomed Derpak into the Yeti Snow MX family, as did Husqvarna Motorcycles. Now a factory rider for both companies, Derpak is enthusiastic about promoting snow bikes and seeing where their capabilities lie. True to his nature, Derpak is always looking for new challenges. Some would call him crazy and there’s certainly a fine line, especially when it comes to action sports, between taking calculated risks and being reckless—the latter being not what Derpak is about.

Bought my bike and yeti 129 last year and love everything about it!! I would like to get into racing and and continue to advance in the back country. I have snowmobiled my whole life but couldn't be happier with my new favorite sport snowbiking. I want to get more women into the sport!! I love ripping on the trails so I really think that I would love racing!! Can't wait to see the c games!!
Morgan is a dedicated, hard working individual; a leader and role model for young, passionate athletes within the FMX community. Crossing over from freestyle to snow MX, Morgan brings a unique character to this revolutionary sport . Morgan is an excellent spokesperson for the MX art as well as showcasing his multiple talents on social media. Morgan attracted more than four million viewers with his latest feat (riding a YETI SNOWMX on water) creating substantial product and corporate visibility opportunities.
Robbie is also one of the most feared FMX competitors in the world. When he should be concentrating on those mammoth leaps, he comes out and wins X Games medals and X-Fighters trophies just because he can. He's also a hell of a father and loving husband, which he regards still to this date as one of his biggest accomplishments in life. Yep, Robbie Maddison is more man than just about any other person on the globe, and with an open mind and the wonders of technology, the world really is Robbie's oyster. Robbie has always managed to turn adversity into advantage, saying that his numerous injuries have only served to help him focus on his goals and raise his own bar. "In some ways, serious injuries helped me refocus on how important this whole adventure around the world is to me. It fires me up more than ever, so it's a blessing in disguise. Traveling the world, doing something I love, meeting the people I've met — it's been a wild ride and I want to keep it going for as long as I can."
Darren Berrecloth is famous not only for his success in competitions, but also as a one of the pioneers to the sport of freeride. Barrecloth had bravery, determination and dedication to the sport of freeride and helped path the way for freeride. He exploded onto the freeride scene with a third-placed finish at the 2002 Red Bull Rampage, and has been one of the leading riders in the world ever since .
For 2017, Matechuk has turned his focus from dirt to snow as he travelled south to make the cut in Minnesota for the 2017 Aspen X Games. As one of only four racers to qualify for the prestigious games, Matechuk will take his CWF Yamaha Raze Yeti to battle the best in the world on the slopes of Aspen Colorado January 26 - 29th. From there Matechuk will head back to the true North strong and free to compete in the first ever Canadian National Snowbike series to take place in Revelstoke, BC. February. (See the MB Schedule HERE). The rest of the time Matechuk will be working with Yeti to further develop their Snow bike kits while filming for various film productions across our Canadian slopes!

Forty five turning twenty seven, a father of three girls and a grandson, I have traveled the Canadian Pro Nationals in years past, best Finnish 6th, Amateur Canadian Champion, multiple provincial 80cc,125cc,250cc and championships, FIM 500cc World championships participant in Europe until a broken femora, recently profiled in motocross action to Finnish seventh at the plus 30 Pro World championships in Glen Helen and a title win in plus 35 pro. I spend my time giving back to my passion of MX , believing in others as others have given me the opportunities to meet the most amazing family across the world. I currently train a few select up and coming riders that are showing heaps of success. My dream is to one day have a proper training facility to enhance my program and give back to the youth coming up. Now with Yeti and snow bikes I see opportunities to look at a year round on bike training program.
Brett Turcotte is a household name in backcountry snowmobiling. His competitors, however, say Turcotte is no rookie. In 2015 he competed in X Games Speed & Style and judge Drake McElroy called him a dark horse to win. In his Quarterfinal with Joe Parsons he was making good on that prediction until his sled broke down. Turcotte has a strong background in backcountry free riding and a massive freestyle compound on the 100 acres at his home in Kamloops, British Columbia. Last winter, though, he permanently inked his name in history by becoming the first person in the world to backflip a snow bike. And not just any snow bike, but the made-in-Canada YETI SNOWMX. This winter will again see Turcotte aboard his KX450 with a 2017 Yeti 120 kit. He’ll also be rocking a 2017 Yeti 129—a spare, he said, for new riders who want to see what these kits are capable of. “For me, it’s great because when the snow isn’t awesome on a sled, it’s still really good for a bike,” said Turcotte. It seems a new chapter is always unfolding for this daredevil, so you’ll want to keep a close eye on him and the YETI SNOWMX team this winter.
