Vanadaconsulted withe Alpinestars Mobile Medical director Tom Carson on the ins and outs of the American program.
The Snocross Mobile Medical Team is a non-profit organization which exists thanks to the generosity of teams, team owners, families, and businesses in Snocross.

MXA has considerable experience with the Switch Hauler from All-Jacked-Up Inc. It is the strongest, most durable, bumper carrier on the planet. Not only does it come with footpeg restraints, strap eyelets and the ability to carry a 300-pound load, the Switch Hauler is a modular package, that breaks down to a nice, easy to store package when you get home. After all, who has room in their garage for a big bulky ramp or awkwardly configured contraption that doesn’t fit anywhere? With the Switch Hauler you’re not limited to the trailer speed limit, a few lanes on the road, prohibited from the carpool lane and it doesn’t need a ramp because it lowers itself down to bike height. If you don’t want to pulll a trailer, mount a Switch Hauler on the back and take what you need to where you’re going.
This Switch Hauler comes in three drop hieghts: a straight tongue design with no drop, 2 inches of drop and 3-1/4-inches of drop to insure that it works with every size truck and Class III or better receiver. The modular design means that the Switch hauler is amazingly simple to install right out of the box. The retail price varies from $449.00 to $479.00.

This event is not an open ride day for the public—only riders who have their name on the gate list will be allowed to ride on the track. No name on the list, no entrance. Since the event is an annual ride/lunch for the people in the industry who play a big role in the success of both MXA and Dirt Bike, it is open to industry, race team, aftermarket, products managers, advertisers and supporters of MXA and DB. It is thank you from MXa to its supporters in the industry. How could you get your name on the list? That’s up to what company you work for and whether or not they will vouch for you. We are going to take all of the proceeds from the day, be it from the T-shirt donations or the blind auction of memorabilia and products and donate 100% of the money to Jessy Nelson for his recovery fund.
If you didn’t receive your invitation letter or forget to RSVP to put your name on the gate list contact Dereck Bernard at firstname.lastname@example.org, Chris Stangl at email@example.com, Robb Mesecher at firstname.lastname@example.org or John Barilla at email@example.com.
