WNY Native Is The #1 Pro-Snowbike Athlete In The Country
Jesse Kirchmeyer of Arcade is really good pro-snowbike athlete. So good in fact, he's the top ranked at his sport in the entire nation.
He's currently the points leader in the snowbike class in the International Series of Champions National Series, according to WIVB.
Snowbiking is a sport that many west coast natives excel at but Kirchmeyer is representing Arcade and Western New York.
“It’s great to be the top snowbiker in America- to be out of the east when it’s primarily a western-driven sport,” Kirchmeyer said. “It’s really awesome to be able to show that the East Coast can compete as well.”
If you don't know what snowbiking is -- it's essentially a cross between motocross and snowmobiling.
He competes in the national Snow BikeCross circuit and won the AMSOIL Championship Snocross National in Salamanca.
The best part about Kirchmeyer is he's only 20 years old! He still has his entire career in front of him.
You can watch Kirchmeyer's 2019 practive laps at the 2019 X Games. He won silver.
