Great idea! Not much time left to make tires, the race is Sunday. Since it's on a rink, I only need to do the left side/center!
I just noticed this line from one of the event organizers:
"The cycle that Central Maine Cycling member Tony Giguere will ride on the ice at Sukee has mountain bike tires with sheetrock screws and silicone, tires handmade by Dave Houston, a mechanic at Mathieu's.
"You just have to get the mindset that you're not going to slip," said Richard, who joined Giguere to test out the Sukee Arena ice surface for cycling recently. "You basically can pedal as hard as you want to. You pedal right through the corners (with the studs). You'll run out of legs before you run out of traction."
Sounds like he has his tires dialed in to the rink!
