~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Steel Shoe Fund 3-hour Endurance Motorcycle Ice Race

The 3 Hour Endurance Race is only days away!!

Luckily Nansea's Tiki Bar has a HUGE parking lot that we will be using for parking.
We'l have a pit area on the ice just like last year.
With snow on the lake, and none really in the forecast, the markings on the course will be a little different than last year, but I'm confident in our team that the track will be awesome as in past years. Signup starts at 8:30 with a mandatory riders meeting at 9:45. $125.00 per team entry fee. For more information, check out www.steelshoefund.org or call Chris at 414-303-1331.

As you can see from the camera lens, it was misty rain and the view gives you a good idea of what I was seeing through my goggles
I'm slower than hell but I had a blast!

I assume that crash was mostly due to lack of visibility?
Couldn't see the edges of the track much on the video at that point, I suspect the goggles were not much better.

Once I memorized the track, I got faster and faster, until it was time to let Mark ride it the last 2 laps.

We fueled up 3 times during the race
but I was able to ride 1hr and 10 minutes from the start. I rode 6 laps because I kept forgetting to pull in

I had so much fun, I'm ready to move to Wisconsin
