Race Report :

Wow! What a day!

Again, I want to thank everyone who attended this years Ice Bike Race. It was great to see some new machines, and new racers. Your continued support will help this sport grow!

It was a busy afternoon for our organizers and volunteers, and I want them to know that their enduring efforts were very much appreciated. Thanks to Tina Kwasniak , Joe Mitrovic, Les Sutch, Ernie Crawford, Pat Kwasniak for all the hours of work that went into the planning of this event. We had a great turn out of competitors and new machines, some fast times, and a few crashes, but no one got hurt. For those of you who traveled many miles to join us, I send a special thank you, as I acknowledge the additional expense that you must incur for travel costs. I know our score keepers were under a lot of pressure at the end day to tally up the results of all those seconds and tenths of a second, and it was difficult for them. If we could just find some more volunteers.....:) I apologize to our women racers for the error in the overall winner's title. You both put in a great effort, and we wanted to recognize that achievement. So, after a re-count of the points, it did result in a tie. It would be wonderful if we could convince more women to compete! Spread the word! They have over three hundred and sixty days to get ready!

Tim Hicks! Next time, if you plan on winning so many events, it would be nice if you could be in attendance at the awards ceremony to receive your winning prizes! Recognition first, food second, okay? (Sorry Tim, they asked me to start the ceremony, and I had not noticed that you had stepped out of the room.)
