Chase Rosemeyer Wants To Live The Dream
by Scott A.Sumner
Chase Rosemeyer from Gilman, Wisconsin near Eau Claire is a racer on the move. The 19 year old has been riding snowmobiles since he was 3 and racing for 4 years. Last year he went to tech college.
"I started on Arctic Cat, then went to Polaris and now race Ski Doo. I love the Ski Doo. It soaks up everything," smiles Chase Rosemeyer. "We have 1 mod and 1 stock sled and would like to do the whole circuit. Yesterday was my first day on this mod and I made it to the finals for the X Games qualifier so Im happy. It has so much power. In the final Chase was 13th and it was real tight race."
"It was fun racing against Tucker Hibbert. I love racing bikes and look up to him. Earlier I pulled the holeshot and won a heat in Semi-Pro Open. You have to remember to breath. That can be my problem."
Semi Pro on the WPSA is very, very competitive. Every heat race there are at least 3 or 4 guys that are in contention to win. "This is my first year in a big racer 55 foot trailer. With out my parents I wouldn't be able to do it. They support me so much. Wesley Racing and Cycle City.com based out of Green Bay, Wisconsin found out about me and gave me a call," notes Rosemeyer. "My nick name growing up was moose as I am 6 ft 1 inch and 180 pounds. This summer Ive been training as hard as I can. I ride a lot of dirt bike. After work ends I'll spend more time. Some day I'd like to make it as a pro rider and live the dream a little bit. "
