Mike Schultz used his experience as a professional racer to tame one of the longest and most challenging tracks in Winter X history. Competing in a field of eight riders, Schultz capitalized on a quick start and clean lines to earn his second consecutive gold in Adaptive Snocross.
“Coming off of practice and into the race I was definitely feeling good,” said Schultz. The sled was running good and I had my knee dialed-in, so I definitely had the confidence and knew I was the fastest racer. But you still get the nerves on the start line and you never know.” Schultz did get a brief challenge from top rival Jim Wazny and motocross legend Doug Henry as the three entered the first turn side by side, but he was quickly able to separate from the pack and begin gaping the field. “By the second corner I was able to get out front and had a good line going up the hill. I was able to starting doubling and just kind of ran away with it.”
Winter X 15 saw a record breaking crowd of over 114,000 spectators during what is by far the busiest and most important weekend of the year for the team. “This was definitely the busiest X Games I’ve ever had with all of the media and our new sponsor Loctite involved with a lot of the events. There was a lot going on and it was great. To top it all off with a gold at the end of the weekend is the best.”
