From his days charging lines in the Idaho backcountry to being at the forefront of the growing sport of competitive snowcross, Heath Frisby’s passion for pushing the limits of snowmobiling are unparalleled.
"Friz" has been a leader in the freestyle sled movement almost from its inception. Creative, audacious, and never afraid to go huge, he took X Games bronze in 2007 at the first-ever Winter X freestyle snowmobile event and followed up with bronze in 2008 and 2009. Whether he’s contending for a podium, filming a DVD, or introducing new fans (even entire countries) to freestyle snowmobiling via the SCS Red Bull Sledstyle Demo Tour, the personable athlete is instrumental in the growing popularity of his sport.
As sponsors came on board, the FSX Freestyle Tour was born, and Heath finished the 2003 season in the number one spot. In 2004, he took multiple tour podiums, and in 2005 he dazzled crowds in Moscow (Russia, not Idaho) on his way to earning second place at the Red Bull Revolution on Machines. In 2005 he also took third place at Red Bull Fuel & Fury, a competition that would quite literally trip him up only one year later: Friz came home from the 2006 event not with a medal but with broken vertebrae. Hours of rehab made his comeback at the 2007 Winter X Games all the sweeter. Now after an ambitious training schedule and a stronger-than-ever drive to win, Heath’s sights are set on even greater things.
