Mike Schultz doesn't let too much affect him these days. Both on, and off, the track, he is moving forward. More often than not, he comes out on the winning end.
Despite losing his left leg during a pro snocross race three years ago, Schultz has adapted to his new role in life and has been busy snatching up X Games medals. This past weekend in Aspen, Schultz added to his growing resume by winning a Winter X Gold Medal in Adaptive Snocross on top of his AMSOIL sponsored Ski Doo.
Also riding a Ski Doo at Winter X Games this past weekend was Team AMSOIL rider Robbie Malinoski. One of the top pro riders in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series, Malinoski had to overcome a poor start in the X Games Snocross final to finish with a bronze medal.
Ross Martin, who rides out of the AMSOIL/Polaris trailer, picked up his second straight silver medal in Aspen. Despite jumping the start, Martin was able to push through the field and into second at the halfway point. Tucker Hibbert won his fifth straight Winter X Gold.
Up next for Martin and Malinoski is round four of the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series in Farmington, N.Y. on February 4-5.
Until then, we'll see you at the races,
