I'm coming back to Vancouver from Fort Mac in a couple weeks, but after riding the rivers, I would like to do some ice racing this winter. I don't have a problem roadtripping to Calgary or Prince George, or somewhere cold, I just don't know where to find races to go out to.

I know some of you guys have done some ice racing....

Where are tracks?
When are races?
How do I get into it?

Thanks guys, I will be the first to admit that I was lazy and didn't check google. I'll do some searching.

Well I'm kinda interested. I've got a set of studs on right now that I've been riding the rivers on up here in Fort Mcmurray..... BUT on the Kamloops page it says to race I can only have studs on the left side of my rear tire??? If that is the case and your tires are studded properly, I may be interested. PM me with your price.

I'll be racing again this year...call Dan Mackenzie 250-573-4337...He has some used tires for cheap...play day comming up...some times we have a bike set up for people to try on play day...

Wana learn how to really chuck a bike into a corner try this!!!!

Imagine going 130kmh then taking a corner like the ramp at 232nd but instead of shutting off and braking ....you tap the back brake and set up a sideways full lock slide and grab all the throttle you have and drift the corner...

this is a great sport for all riders...even girls do really good since not so much strength is required and the less weight is a big advantage,,

This will for sure help any rider with control and getting comfortable when the bike isn't stuck to pavement...the traction is very good....probably as good as a street bike on a rainy day...but when you slide it won't step out as far...more like if your like on a dirt bike and the tide went out...woooopie fun...

Get out and try it...find a buddy with a dirt bike split the cost of the tires( $200-$300 ish each) and share the ride up....3.5 hours to Stake lake....get that I wish I was riding itch out of your ass!!!

It's always sunny!!!!! and there's hot dogs n chilli......makes the ride home mmmm mmmmm ....you could play....did you do that???..(((rolls the window down)))

Hey Mr.Sushi, Will I need the steel cage fenders I saw in the pics on the "Play day"? I get back from China the Jan 6th and I leave in 2 days. So I couldn't make a set and I cringe to pay 120 to get someone to make some.
