    SPORT: SNOWMOBILE MARATHON

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL SNOWMOBILE MARATHON WAS HELD RECENTLY IN WINCONSIN IN THE NORTHERN UNITED STATES. THE FOUR HUNDRED CONTESTANTS TAKING PART IN THE 42 MILE (64 KILOMETRES) RACE AT RHINELANDER PROVED THE GROWING INTEREST THERE IS IN THIS RATHER UNUSUAL METHOD OF RACING.

    SNOWMOBILING, WHICH IS BECOMING AN EVEN FASTER GROWING WINTER SPORT THAN SKIING, HAS MANY ATTRACTIONS. AMONG THEM: HIGH MOBILITY, LOW COST, AND EASE OF HANDLING. THE VEHICLES START LIKE AN OUT-BOARD MOTOR, ARE TRACTIONED BY REAR TANK-LIKE TREADS, AND STEERED BY HANDLE-BARS ATTACHED TO TWO FRONT-RUNNING SKIS.

    CAPABLE OF SPEEDS OF UP TO 45 MILES (72 KILOMETRES) AN HOUR, COMPETITION WAS KEEN AMONG THE CONTESTANTS WHO CAME FROM AS FAR AWAY AS ALASKA.

    SYNOPSIS:
    FINER POINTS SUCH AS CUSHIONING THE BUMPS, COME QUICKLY. BUT TAKING OFF FROM SKI-JUMPS AT FULL SPEED SHOULD BE LEFT STRICTLY FOR THE EXPERTS.
