XiiR (Xtreme International Ice Racing) is a motorcycle racing tour...ON ICE! Man and machine going from 0-60mph in under 3 seconds riding Speedway bikes and quads that are modified to compete on an indoor ice arena. There are over 2000 metal studs added to the tires and there are NO BRAKES! What does that mean...? PURE ADRENALINE! It is THE fastest sport on ice and one of the fastest sports in the world. The rush of so much power and speed on something as unpredictable as ice, has whipped audiences into a frenzy and gained new fans across the country. Each year's series continues to get better... drawing bigger crowds, more sponsors and riders from all over the globe.
Don't be fooled by the appearance of the speedway bike. It's more than just a mountain bike with an engine. It's engine is equivalent to a 1200cc crotch rocket engine in a mountain bike frame, 4-stroke, 4-valve engine that runs on nitro methanol.
