Ripped Snowbike Tour 2017:
After having such great success at peach fest 2016 the sledgehammers crew decided to host one of the first ever snow bike events in Canada.
The location for this amazing event would be in the birthplace of sledgehammers apparel, what better place to showcase some of the best riders in the snow bike industry than our hometown!!
The event was attended by some of the best writers in the country including X games gold-medal winner of 2016 Brock Hoyer.
Again sledgehammers could not have done an event like this without local support from businesses and the city.
Some of the sponsors included twin anchors houseboats, waterways house boats, Papa’s marina, A&W Sicamous and many more!!
For our second FMF show we were once again located in our hometown HousePro capital of Canada Sicamous British Columbia!!
Although the wind Delayed the show and made it difficult to ride to full potential the riders put on a amazing show with narley ground demonstrations and even allow the local kids to hurl water balloons at them while they ripped around!!
Never a dull show when riders like Kyle Demelo, Jeff Fehr, Jay Soltes, Chris Nolan and Kris Garwasiwk are in attendance.
Along with the freestyle motocross the city of Sicamous and Sledgehammers provided local attendees with everything from a 20 foot waterslide to a dunk tank.
We absolutely love doing events everywhere but it is especially amazing doing them where we all lived in grew up.
With the success of peach fest 2016 we were invited back to the beautiful city of Penticton British Columbia for a second year of FMX action.
This time rather than being set up on the north block of Main Street the Penticton peach fest society organizers of one of the most amazing events in the south Okanagan decided to open up there gates and Mega Motocross 2.0 was born.
Vendors set up to engage the crowd with new products and Demo some of the new showcased items in their Fleet.
Sponsors included vantage power and marine, Valley motor sport out of West Kelowna and many more.
This was the first year that sledgehammers had brought some of the best inverted riders in British Columbia to a venue and the crowd was electric!!!
Special thanks to Kyle Demelo and Jeff Fehr for coming out and putting on a show no one expected.
Ripped Snowfest 2018:
In the crisp winter of 2018 sledgehammers was once again back in our hometown for yet another winter event!!!
With the success of 2017’s Ripped Snowbike Tour We decided to turn a one day event into a two day winter festival!!!
The word had spread about the success of the previous year and it brought out even more of the Pinnacle riders in snow biking to date.
Some of the riders included backcountry phenom Regen Seig, X games 2018 silver medallist Brock Hoyer and the gold-medal winner of 2018 Cody Maddachuk.
In addition to snow bike action there was sled races, live music, beverage garden, prizes and even some side-by-side on track racing with spectators. This event was one of a kind and our best winter one to date.
