Eight of the globe's top snowmobilers are descending upon Wrigleyville for Red Bull Fuel and Fury, a freestyle snowmobile competition that will take place outside of iconic Wrigley Field. The event, which will send competitors soaring against the night skyline, will mark the first time that extreme snowmobiling has touched ground in the heart of Chicago.
The competition will take place on one of the most jaw-dropping courses that the sport has ever seen. Thousands of cubic yards of woodchips, dirt and turf will be laid to the asphalt beneath three mammoth steel ramps. Between flips, grabs and big-air tricks, the unrelenting series of kickers will let riders ferociously vie for victory in front of captivated onlookers, and a panel of heavyweight judges. The competition will be judged in a double eliminated bracket.
WHERE: Just outside of Wrigley Field, in the lot on Clark Street between Addison and Waveland. Entrance will be at the corner of Clark and Waveland.
WHEN: Saturday, November 5, 2011. Gates: 5 PM Competition: 6 PM.
WHO: Seven-time Winter X Games medalist Levi LaVallee will host the competition alongside a judges panel of five industry superstars. Eight top snowmobilers from around the globe will compete, including Winter X Games gold medalists Daniel Bodin and Heath Frisby as well as all-stars Cory Davis, Eric St. John, Fred Rassmussen, Ted Culbertson, Jimmy Fejas and Jeff Mullin.
