Snowmoto – when snow mobiles and motorbikes collide

They call it ‘snow biking’. We call it snowmoto. Red Bull took motocross rider Ronnie Renner into the Idaho snow backcountry to trial it.

The concept is fairly simple: take a regular motocross bike, slap on a snow mobile track and a front ski instead of wheels, and voilá, you’ve got a snow bike. Or so say Red Bull with their latest video release.

We hope they’re using bio fuel…

What do you think, are they onto a winner? Would you want to see these in the backcountry or not?
