    Is there races until the ice melts? My buds and I are thinking of riding sleds down there to watch. Two of them are thinking of studding DTs for next year. Is there a web site,location map,admission cost?


    I'll GOOGLE it,I forgot it's 2013.

    Hi Carl...you might be right but I like 'em both although bikes are more fun.

    Take the short drive out next weekend and go for a few laps on our YZ and you'll see...just bring your helmet and an appetite for a great day. It would be great to see you.

    I remember when I was young and my parrents drove us down to Duluth or Minneapolis in the winter, the ice would be pushed up on the shore and it would be a pile about 40' high along the shoreline :eek1 It was really cool!

    Ice?...remember when there was ice on Superior :huh

    Have a safe drive BackRoader!

    Would Travel Manitoba have some? I think there is a booth at the Forks.
    You could also try the Flag shop on Pembina just south of Wildwood.

    Not sure if they are reflective or not but I remember seeing some fancy Canadian Flag stickers at Cdn Tire, I think that's where I got mine that I had on my previous bike. Can't remember if they were reflective or not.
