This was the first time I’d ever seen ice racing in person. It was amazing! Seeing those riders flying around that icy oval was exhilarating. They seemed to defy gravity as they skimmed above the surface sideways. When the powdery snow began to fly, riders mid-pack would enter a turn flying blind in a whiteout. No guts, no glory.

It was a real eye opening experience for me. If you have the opportunity to check out an ice racing event, don’t hesitate – do it!
