Active, fast trail riding is the thing for me with a sled. Even though the riding would be fast-paced, I still always use common sense. I don’t want to end up at a hospital. My main goal is to get in the sauna in one piece after a riding day.
In past years I did ride some enduro races in amateur class but with age I’ve been orientated more towards long journeys on trail than riding against a clock.
Last winter we had a 900-km journey with my friends in four days across the trails of Lapland. Early start in mornings, 5 to 6 hours on trail and then a sauna at our nightly accommodations – those were magnificent riding days.
For me, adventure is a part of snowmobiling. Often we are the first riders on the trail from Rovaniemi to Levi in November, and sometimes we get lost there because there are no other tracks to follow. In turn, we have our last spring rides when creeks flow freely on swamps and the sun warms in May.
