A new popular sport is born! Toronto's Ice Race has actually been running for about a decade (formerly known as the Bloody Massacre) but i just stumbled upon it through Facebook and regretably missed its appearance at Dufferin Grove park in Toronto.
Watch the attached video, I'm impressed by the amount of angle these riders have going into each turn. Chalk it up to 750 screws embedded in each tire (yikes, don't get run over by one of these).
Not quite the production values of Red Bull's insane Crashed Ice held recently in Quebec city, but good grassroots fun and very buzzable news just the same. Here's the visual coverage from Reuters. No word on whether the winner Jim "Ice Bear" Cuz was blood or maple syrup doping or whether naked rider Tofu made an appearance.
