    What:        Professional freestyle Sled-X Rider - Canadian Ross Mercer -
                 will go record-hunting, taking on a massive 100' custom-
                 built ramp, in an attempt to crush the current distance
                 flight record of 248 feet on a snowmobile. The jump will
                 take place at "The Compound", a private ranch and snowmobile
                 terrain park located 10 miles west of Steamboat Springs,
                 Colorado. Ross' jump will be an official world-record
                 attempt, and filed accordingly with Guinness World Records.

    Who:         Ross Mercer is Canada's best and one of the world's elite
                 professional freestyle Sled-X riders.

    Background:  From a scattered group of amateurs to world wide audience,
                 snowmobiling, and specifically freestyle Sled-X, has grown
                 to be one the fastest growing winter sports, drawing tens of
                 thousands of fans to events around the world. The previous
                 Sled-X distance record was set in April 2006 - with a
                 248 ft. jump off a ramp constructed by Mercer WRA Partners
                 SCS Racing.
