After much success in its inaugural year sanctioning with the American Motorcyclist Association, the AMA Championship Snow Bike Series will be recognized as an AMA National Championship series in 2018, and will award AMA National number-one plates to the top finisher of each National class at the end of the seven-round series.

“We are excited to continue working with R&R Promotions to provide an AMA National Championship series for snow-bike racers in 2018,” said AMA motocross manager Ricky Rickords. “The expansion of snow-bike racing during the past year has been very promising, and we look forward to the continued growth and popularity of the sport in the future.”

The first round of the AMA Snow Bike National Championship Series will kick off on December 9 in Hill City, Minnesota.

“We are very excited to become an AMA National Championship series,” said R&R Promotions owner Ron Dillon. “We will continue working hard to grow the sport and provide high-quality racing events for all snow-bike competitors.”

Snow bikes swap out wheels and knobby tires for a ski in front for steering, and a high-performance snowmobile-style track in the rear for traction. Riders compete on a motocross-inspired half-mile track comprised of jumps, banks, right and left-hand turns, and whoops.
