My new spiketires! Front Bridge Gritty ED661, Rear Trelleborg WinterFriction 454, spikes acid-treated and glued on drilled tires. These are for MX-track. Spiketires for trails do not have spikes pointing out to the sides. Spikes for real icetracks on frozen lakes are even much longer!

edited, link was not working

Alberta Endurance Ice Racing Association

There is a complete race season with 5 or so races. All races are 6 hours plus the big 24hr event.

This will total about 3000kms of riding if you complete the season.

Ft.Mac did host a race in previous years during your winter carnival. :cry:
