HAMPSTEAD, N.H. (Dec. 22, 2019) — Officials at Rock Maple Racing (RMRXC) are busy behind the scenes, as cross country snowmobile race teams from around the northeast gear up for the 2020 season. The series will run six events in three states at venues perfectly suited to XC competition.
After all the holiday celebrations are completed, RMR XC lifts the lid on a brand new season on Saturday, Jan. 18, at Gould Mountain Farms in scenic Sherman, Maine. Located in the true snowbelt area of the Pine Tree State, Gould Mountain serves as an ideal (and snowy) host for our season opener.
Round 2 will be take place on Saturday, January 25, as RMR returns to Maine’s largest winter gathering, the famed Snodeo in Rangeley. This event and its unique atmosphere puts the spotlight on our racers and teams as they run for trophies and bragging rights. Snodeo is a not-to-miss Maine ritual.
After a pair of races on Maine’s rural landscape, a trip to New York is on tap for Round 3. On Saturday, Feb. 8, teams will return to beautiful Lake Luzerne as part of the area’s annual Winter Carnival. This event puts RMR XC in front of many new faces who can enjoy the sport in their region.
For Round 4, Rock Maple Racing will makes its annual trek to West Glover, Vermont, on Saturday, Feb. 15. The race at Young Farms offers what could easily be called the best views on the tour, given the picturesque setting in the rolling hills of Vermont’s rural Northeast Kingdom.
On Saturday, March 7, the action will resume at High Voltage MX in Greig, New York. The debut for RMR XC there last winter was well received, and we’re hoping for an even bigger turnout for Round 5 in 2020. This venue offers plenty of room for a great course and warm hospitality for our fans.
To wrap up the 2020 RMR XC campaign, teams will return to the sportsman’s paradise known as Jackman, Maine. The great folks at the Border Riders Snowmobile Club, along with Long Pond Camps and Guide Service, play host to the series championship finale on Saturday, March 14.
“I really feel we have another exciting season of racing in front of us,” Rock Maple Racing president Tara Saxton said. “It looks like the warm temps are behind us, snow is in the forecast, and I know more will be on the way soon. We’re anxious to get another season revved up in the New Year.”
