 An old expression comes to mind when it comes to the subject of choosing an ATV for a young rider. “It’s like shooting fish in a barrel”. Your choices are far from limited. The problem is that while there is a large pool to choose from, there are very few that are worthy of taking up the space on your garage floor. You can’t pick up a weekly auto-swapper magazine without seeing the ads for no-name 50, 90, 110, or even 125cc youth ATVs, many of which can be had for less money than a monthly payment on a new diesel pickup.

Albertville, Minnesota:  November 2016 - The newly formed Snocross Mobile Medical Team is excited to announce its title sponsor with FXR Racing Inc. This three year sponsorship brings together a company full of passionate enthusiasts who have been supporting and investing in our sport for years and a brand new medical team for our athletes. Snocross Mobile Medical Team:Formed in the fall of 2016 and initially brought to the attention of the industry at Haydays, the Snocross Mobile Medical Team (SMMT) was created with the purpose of providing world-class on track medical care (emergency, trauma, 1st responder) for the snocross athletes at every round of the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Tour.Former AMSOIL Championship Snocross assistant race director, Jake Vanada, was prompted to start this organization after seeing first-hand how the Alpinestar Mobile Medical (formerly known as Asterisk Mobile Medical) works within the professional Supercross and Motocross industry. In his new role as the MX and SX Chaplain, Vanada consulted the Alpinestars Mobile Medical director, Tom Carson, and it became clear the sport of snocross could greatly benefit from a similar program.

Polaris has enjoyed spectacular success with their off-road lineup. It seems every year new model announcements introduce a flood of new ATVs and Side x Sides and over time the total number of machines in the Polaris stable has grown to well over 100. For 2017, Polaris is concentrating less on all-new machines and more on quality and refinement, with a good dose of technology backing it up.

Polaris had a problem. Despite offering by far the largest off-road lineup from any manufacturer, there was no Side x Side model between the sporty RZR models and the working class hero, the Ranger Side x Sides. What they needed was an answer to Can-Am’s Commander, Honda’s Pioneer 700, and Kawasaki’s Teryx.

Leading the way in innovation, RIDE COMMAND is a unique solution solving the most common experiential problems with off-road riding. The RIDE COMMAND system includes the RIDE COMMAND™ app and an intuitive, glove-touch, weather-resistant RIDE COMMAND™ 7” (17.8-cm.) Display.
