Matt Smits

State: Wisconsin
Sled: 850 INDY 137 XC
Favorite place to Ride: Trail riding Northern Wisconsin

 

Matt has a ‘non-typical’ story where he began riding around 26 years old after some of his buddies had convinced him to give it a shot. It was an immediate obsession due to being able to get out and enjoy the months otherwise spent indoors.

 

When his first sled broke down just before a ride, Matt went out and switched to team Polaris with a brand-new Indy just in the nick of time to make a trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with 10 others—the sled he still rides and a brand he is very passionate about today. The most recent notable trip was out to Togwotee Pass, WY, for some back-country riding on the RMK 850 Patriot, a whole new level of the sled. He came back home with not only new skills but also new lifelong friendships.
