Motorcycle Ice Racing at Lake George, NY

Motorcycle Ice Racing at Lake George, NY

While at the Winter Carnival in Lake George, we had a chance to check out motorcycle and ATV ice racing. Riders of this AMA sanctioned event were from the Electric City Riders.

Motorcycle Ice Racing

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.
