The sleds are faster, the times are smaller and the hills even more challenging. These factors have not deterred the local contingent of the Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Hillclimb Association (RMSHA) from serving notice that Star Valley riders are among the best in the world.

At the 2014 Jackson Hole World Championships their skills were on full display this past weekend.

Luke Rainey brought home the 700 Stock title while Gavin Balls won his first title in the 700 Improved category.

Andy Thomas made it a clean sweep in the Semi-Pro division as he won the Stock, Improved and King of the Hill races.

Kaycee Balls won both the Women’s Mod and the Queen of the Hill race.

Finally, Tom Roby continued to be one of the best in the Pro Masters division, bringing home top performances in the Improved Stock and the Mod categories.
In all, Star Valley riders captured 28 top-10 finishes.

Climbers will continue to compile points in three more events in Logan, Utah, Crested Butte, Colo. and Driggs, Idaho before parking their sleds for the 2014 season.
