Ice Racing on Cedar Lake in Indiana

I went out to watch as my old man has a condo on the lake.. and a few people I know from another forum were racing.. Pretty spectacular stuff..

I shot quite a few photos.. and posted some favorites on another forum (chicagolandsportbikes.com) Figured some people on here might be interested in the pics and or possibly checking it out.. Seems they are running every weekend both days







Grasshopper


Grasshopper #199 chasing down #74






#42 Farrell






Grasshopper still chasing down #74 (i think)


#42 and #75 duking it out










#3 really backed it in


same corner - split second later (i am omitting some shots)

Ryan #60

Ryan




A bit of cropping and these photos will be twice as good








Not cropped.. at 135mm to fill the lens he was pretty close






Grasshopper


Grasshopper


Grasshopper passing on the outside


Almost a wheel


and up the inside on the next corner


and on ahead.. I have some more shots.. but some of them were so close.. It would be a waste for everyone here.. if you want them nick.. ping me

Also.. buy my CR500.. You'd have won.. AND I'd have money to buy a 70x200 f2.8 VR lens to photograph your win with


Ryan and #75 (who may or may not be Jeff Fredette)

Re: Ice Racing on Cedar Lake in Indiana

Sweet Pics. How thick is the ice on that lake this time of year? And the outside air temp?

Solid 10" min to go racing...
These pics were shot Sunday the 11th... It was cold then.. It's BITTER cold in Chicagoland now.. I am downtown and according to my iphone it was -14 this AM on my way in (without windchill) I think it's in the -30 range right now.. *with windchill* factored in..

I am not going out this weekend, a friends father passed away.. but I am planning (hoping?) on stopping out next weekend.. might even rent a better lens for the weekend

I shot over 600 pics.. and the gallery was pretty popular.. made #1 search on google for ice racing and got over 40k hits in 2-3 days.. only posted on the one site and thru searches.. it's pretty cool.. I have gotten comments and emails from a few of the competetors who found themselves on it

Re: Ice Racing on Cedar Lake in Indiana

No local Indianan's around?
Kind of surprised

Anyone else want to check it out?
It says it's &$ to get in the pit area.. but there was nobody collecting there when I was there.. but the entire pier area is just free... Seems strange that theyd do all of this for nothing.. but its good to get out and support them anyway...

Side note.. from what I read those things have far more traction than any other kind of offroad riding.. possibly onroad.. thats just amazing
