Team Arctic's Dan Ebert (r) and Cody Thomsen

 

Team Arctic's Dan Ebert (right) and Cody Thomsen have both risen to a new level in ISOC snocross this season. Literally, as they both jumped a class - Ebert to Pro and Thomsen to Semi Pro.

Unlike most of their contemporaries, Ebert and Thomsen work on their own sleds, every day.

Captured here inside the Ebert race shop in Lake Shore, Minn., by photographer Gary Walton, the duo are preparing for the National in Sandy, Utah, this coming weekend.
