As Aspen, Colorado ramps up for the 14th year of ESPN’s adrenaline bomb known as the Winter X Games, ArcticFX Graphics has six of the top snowmobile athletes’ rides wrapped and ready for the fierce competition that will begin with the Snowmobile Long Jump on Friday, January 23. The distinctive graphic designs from ArcticFX will be an eye-catching part in the spectacle of snow sports that bring thousands of onlookers and millions of TV viewers to this unique annual event in the heart of the high Rocky Mountains.
“We are so proud to contribute to the competitive spirit that fuels the snowmobile challenges at X Games, and we are confident that our longtime friend and colleague Chris Burandt will crush it in the opening Long Jump event,” said ArcticFX Graphics founder and CEO Jordan Yankee. “A badass sled wrap is an integral part of the overall presence of each rider in the Games. This year, Chris Burandt had a contest using our one-of-a-kind app SledWrapR® for his fans to submit designs for his racing sled for this year’s Winter X Games. AFX congratulates design contest winner Trevor Olean and we are happy to have produced that wrap for Chris’ 2015 X Games ride.”
Other top snowmobile racers sponsored by ArcticFX Graphics are Keith Curtis, Kyle Tapio, David Sharp Jr., Jay Mentaberry, and adaptive racer Paul Thacker. All are champions in various divisions of the Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Hillclimb Association’s World Championship Hillclimb competition held annually in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Curtis, Tapio, Sharp, Jr., and Mentaberry will be competing in the return of the popular HillCross race scheduled for 3:00pm (Mountain time) on Saturday afternoon, January 24. This popular race has not been seen in the Winter X Games for ten years. Chris Burandt will also be competing in the HillCross race. Adaptive athlete Paul Thacker will compete on Sunday, January 25, at 12:00pm (Mountain time.) ESPN’s Winter X Games are broadcast internationally.
“Whether it’s for global exposure or for a local sled racing league on the weekends, ArcticFX Graphics wants every rider’s sled to have its own singular design,” said Jordan Yankee. “Our customers can log in to our SledWrapR® app and spend as much time as they like to either create their own special wrap design or to use our designs in stock and experiment with individual color choices. And, once the sled is wrapped, if there is an encounter with, say, a tree—just that particular panel wrap can be reproduced for the fix. Our riders at X Games will also have replacement wrap components with them in case there is a need for repairs.”
Television coverage of the 2015 Winter X Games will begin on Thursday, January 22 and continue through Sunday night, January 25.
