With the specialization of snocross sleds taking them to a level of extreme bump performance at the exclusion of other favorable attributes, ie: cornering ability, cold weather comfort, top speed, etc. they really don’t have as much relevance for trail-rider-performance.
It sure is different from the old days of the Indy Trail Specials when I started racing- with basically just a wider ski stance. Still snocross is a great show.
It would be nice if we could get back to a bit more of a grassroots snocross level for entry level riders. You would have to exclude the snocross specials.
Very difficult though to come up with local level snocross tracks, you almost need access to snow making equipment.
