Midwest Extreme Snowmobile Challenge (MESC) 

XC- This discipline will be same as it is at all of our cross country races except on a shorter course; length of course is typically 3-5 miles depending on snow conditions.

Hillclimb- This discipline will be same as it always has been but we look at RMSHA for the example of how hillclimb racing should be; courses will have a great flow, obstacles to challenge the riders, & of course elevation changes to make it even more fun.

Hill X- This is a sport that was in decline but still had a huge following of racers here in the Midwest just looking for a place or series to offer some good hillcross racing. We will be taking some ideas used in the original hillcross series from years past but our Midwest Extreme twist into the course design. Riders will face a course with jumps, rhythm sections, turns, whoops, and possibly some downhill portions as well as uphill.
