I'm almost embarrassed to post the video, since it's sounds like I'm trying to murder my bike. My friend and I raced our first 3 hour ice race. I was faster than him, but I don't work with my hands, so I'm weaker. I sat out what turned out to be exactly one lap to get shake some life back into my arms and fingers. Not cold, I was a steaming heap at the end. He ended up with third in our class, the top two spots were pro riders. He pretends like he's not proud, but it only took him a day to stick it on his garage wall with ice racing screws.

The yellow X on the back of the helmet identifies us as noobs. While I was passed a fair bit by pros, it was satisfying to pass someone and then flash the X. Our laps were 9 minutes compared to the top guys pulling laps in the 7:45 range per 10 km lap.

Way to go!! Was hoping to get down this winter but it looks like next year due to work. Sounds like not a great turnout?

Buuuuuuurn! Actually, there were 56 riders. Our goofing around the previous two winters has us not horribly slow. Until I misjudged a hairpin and went through a bank, I was easily keeping up with riders that have been racing for some time. Our fastest lap times were quite respectable as well (the pro guys are quite untouchable). See you next year. Hopefully by then I will have a better schedule at work, and I hope to hit several races.

56 is good! I was a bit worried that interest may have been waining. Glad to see the numbers are still up.

There was mention of numbers dropping off at the meeting prior to the race, but they seemed happy with the numbers at that paticular race. If I had anything to do with it, I'd be at every one, and my enthusiasm for it would have friends itching to try it as well. Sadly, it would be like watching the specials olympics on bikes. There is a new girl from the west coast at work, and her hubby races supermoto, and I thought winter and ice racing would be right up his alley, but he is getting into bracket racing

Just tooling around the neighborhood. This stuff is scary on non-studded two wheels.
