Timbersled snowbike phenom Reagan Sieg was recently in Whitecourt, Alberta, for an event called the 2015 World Snowmobile Invasion where he performed alongside six of the best snowmobile freestyle riders in the world. But it wasn’t enough for Sieg just to perform, he had to set a new world record.
After a couple of shorter attempts, Sieg amazed the crowd as he jumped his snowbike to a distance of 25 metres (83 feet).

Sieg was riding a KTM with the latest Mountain Horse SX snowbike conversion kit from Timbersled Products Inc., which is based in Kootenai, Idaho. For the past four years, Sieg has been working hard to promote this brand and the sport of snowbiking. He even started up his own Timbersled dealership, Okanagan Snowbikes, in Vernon, B.C. So this show in Whitecourt was a great opportunity for him to show the world what can be done on these bikes.
Sieg has been riding sleds and dirt bikes his entire life. He is a Canadian motocross champion and a professional FMX rider—and it shows, too.
With his sick talents and Timbersled’s constant desire to improve snowbike technology, the sky’s truly the limit when it comes to this sport.
