Fifth Gear Powersports of Elko, NV recently won several Reader Choice Awards sponsored by their local newspaper, the Elko Daily Free Press. No doubt their dedication to the local off-road bike and UTV scene is a big reason for their popularity, but they also cater to the local mining industry. They started by selling LED lights used for off-road night riding to the local mining operations. They also sell a variety of UTV vehicles from brands such as Kawasaki, Gravely and Polaris for use in underground mines. The utility vehicles must be configured to meet Mine Safety and Health Administration standards. Fifth Gear services the vehicles and has a washing bay at their facility for cleaning utility vehicles that come directly from a mine. Learn more:  Elkodaily.com
