Motorcycle Ice Racing

Knobby tires full of studs grip the ice as motorcycles rip up the white stuff on the frozen surface of Rice Lake. The Oshawa Competition Motorcycle Club (OCMC) had a George Jones Race Number 1 on Saturday, January 27, 2013 and the sudden warming caused a pressure ridge crack that filled about a third of the course with freezing cold water. The series runs from January to March.

Held in Bewdley, Ontario the ice racing course has two tracks; one for youth and one for adults, with the adult track being considerably more challenging and a lot more corners. The tires have an inner tire to provide depth for the double flat, slotted head screws which are used as ice studs. The orientation of the screws provide outside angle studs for corners and the middle studs are used for braking.
