King of Kings

Who would it be? Your guess is probably right on the money. That’s right: Ladies and gentlemen, your King of Kings for the 2013 World Championship Snowmobile Hillclimb, Kyle Tapio, with his fastest time of the day. He very nearly took second, too, losing out on that by less than a tenth of a second.
