Whitlock wins inaugural snow climb

— Travis Whitlock not only was the oldest Winter X Games athlete overall but he won the gold medal in the Harley Davidson Snow Climb last weekend.

This is the first year the Snow Climb has taken place, and Whitlock is annually a competitor at the North American Hillclimbers Association Nitro National Hillclimb in Sunnyside.

“The X Games officials reached out the NAHA board and invited five of our pros to compete in the debut of Harley Davidson’s Snow Climb, which is patterned after our X Climb, at the 2018 Winter X Games,” Nitro organizer John Nyboer said.
