Shelby Mahon

Your Sport?
Backcountry, Cross Country, Snocross

Your sled of choice?
600 XRS

Tell us about your greatest moments in your sport:
Times when you can inspire young riders. No greater feeling than watching a young boy or girl fall in love with the sport. That look of amazement, wonder and inspiration is truly magical.

Which C&A Pro Skis do you use and why?
I use a number of different ski models depending what I am up to. For snowcross racing in Canada and my trail riding I prefer the XCS crossover ski. For backcountry riding I of course use the amazing BX Boondocking and Technical ski! They work perfectly and they look great to!

Who are your heroes and why?
Krista Maki-Zurn and Shawn Zurn, Kody Kamm, Tucker Hibbert, Julie-Ann Chapman, Shawn Endel and more! All of those riders who work hard and have the passion to go along with it!

What was your first sled?
1997 Formula 500 Ski-Doo

Tell us about your worst wreck:
3 doubles in a row at my race in Lindsay, Ontario. I was the only girl to even attempt them. Made the first two. Got too excited and forgot about the 3rd one! I ended up nose first into the landing. Broke my throttle in half, bruised my ribs and broke my left wrist! hahaha OOPS!

What are your hobbies besides sleds?
Anything with a motor! UTVs, four-wheelers, boats, sea-doos and more!

What are your ultimate snowmobile career goals?
My career goals have slowly changed to reflect the things I have experienced and had the opportunity to do. Today my goals include running a photography and marketing business specializing in motorsports and getting to ride my sled all over the world.
