Meet “Orville” – Rocky the Flying Squirrels World Championship Brother.

34 years after Steve Thorsen won the coveted title of “World Champion” at Eagle River, Wisconsin the historic sled (affectionately known as “Orville”) is made ready to return home to Roseau, Minnesota where it was created. There will be one pit stop along the way: “Orville” will get to be reunited with his brothers “Bumpy” and “Rocky’.

Stay tuned!

Here this baby run. And here it again, if you dare.

See footage of Steve’s 1978 World Championship race. (footage starts at about 1:31)

    Nothing sounds so good and looks so intentionally built for kicking ass. Great video/music to! This sled looks excellent. Seems like one more video of 1 more sled is all that is needed to bring forward the harmony this trio once produced for many cheering fans…
