Ironwood, MI – Continued warm weather and a fast melting snow pack at Big Powderhorn Mountain in Michigan has forced the cancellation of Red Bull Snow Boundaries, a first-of-its-kind snowmobile enduro race, scheduled to be held March 27. An extremely abnormal stretch of warm weather has proved too much to overcome as event organizers took a first hand look at course conditions and determined the current layout to be unsatisfactory for an endurance event. All possible alternatives were explored, but the warm weather, limited snow cover and concern for driver/equipment safety ultimately yielded the final decision.
Red Bull is extremely appreciative of the athletes who committed to participate in what was to be a snowmobile event designed to push the limits of rider and machine and expand the boundaries of snowmobile competition. Red Bull remains firmly committed to the event and will work closely with racers, industry experts and factory race departments to bring this event to the snowmobiling community in 2016. Athletes that signed up to race this year will be the first to know about details for next year’s event.
