Polaris has named Darin Gould as its new Western Snowmobile Hillclimb Race Cooridnator.
Gould holds a previous title for King of the Hill at the Jackson Hole World Championships and has been a longtime Polaris hillclimber.
Gould succeeds longtime coordinator Rick Ward, with whom he shared a close friendship since they were kids. Ward died last month from injuries sustained in a traffic accident.
“Nobody will ever replace Rick,” said Gould. “But I feel good going into this and as soon as we get snow, we’ll be on the sleds to get a baseline about setup and what our guys need to do to succeed.”
