    This bike competed in the Quebec City Winter Carnival ice racing scene featured in "On Any Sunday".

    Serious question from a non-ice racer. Do/did they ever injure themselves with those spike? It has to happen on occasion I would think? Yeowch!

    Not an ice racer either but , I heard a couple of gruesome stories .

    A guy crashes in a pack and his dead-man kill switch fails and the bikes landing position rolls the throttle on. Dude slides into the spinning wheel and in an instant it gouges out a trough in his thigh to the bone.

    Another, during a race in Russia, at high speed on a bitter cold day a competitors goggles fly off and before he gets stopped one of his eyeballs freezes.:eek1

    Fortunately they use ice racing screws instead of spikes in North America these days.
    Even those can smart if you get run over however! Luckilly there is usually a lot of padding in addition to layers of riding gear on when you are racing in twenty degrees below conditions.

    In Europe they still use spikes, so as noted best not to ride over your foot! :lol3
