Mtb Racing on Ice
I just noticed this race on Evergreen Lake is going on and it's in my own 'hood, so I figured no one else really knows about it either.
Looks like a good excuse to buy /make some studded tires. Except I am not the racer type and I am already busy that day.
Its part of the Evergreen Winter Festival and they have all types of events going on.
Evergreen Winter Festival 2012
I was up in WY and ID last weekend and they were advertising snow bike races. And a gear store in Driggs had a nice snow bike in the window (Surly).

I think snow biking is gaining popularity. It used to be just Surly's Pugsley that was mass produced but now Salsa has the Mukluk, there is the Fatbike brand, Nine Zero Seven, Moots Snoots, and a lot of boutique builders will produce one too.

The Evergreen Winterfest is promoting an ICE bike race though. The fat tires aren't going to help much, you'll need spikes for sure. Or lots of padding.
High speed Motorcycle racing on ice comes to mind.

PBR- How do you know what the placements were? It seemed a little on the loose side of organized. Especially when the announcer called me out in third place when I crossed the line right behind first and second, knowing I had just been lapped. I did manage to move up a lot - you can see me second to last in the start picture up top. I should have sandbagged the novice class - they were giving away Hawaiian Vacations
