Motorcycle Ice Racing w/ the Contour HD



helmet cam

Motorcycle Ice Racing is truly a Canadian Sport, on a 1/4mile oval that is plowed. Motorcycles, Sidecars, & Quads Race 6 Laps to a checkered Flag.

Races are a 3 heat series, 6 laps, each race is about 3 minutes, Racers can reach speeds of 120km/h in a corner, dragging their footpeg & sometimes handlebar on other racers & inside banks.

Our bikes use Full Fender Guards on the rear & front to protect other racers when in tight quarters on the track, I myself have been hit in the leg by another racers handlebar when in a corner going hard, its nothing but tight racing! If you get tagged by a tire, you are not going to have a good year.

helmet cam Our tires use 1/4” screws designed only for one thing, Ice Racing. The rear tire can have upward of 350 screws, 2-3 Per Knob. The inside carcass of the tire has a road race tire to give the screw stability, keep it from ripping the tires knobs and to keep it from hitting the tube. Most tires used are made in Quebec or in Alberta By Jim Titmus of Skylark, a multiple Champion of Ice Racing.

The 1st Part of the Video video you will See The 2008 & 2009 Champions of Modified Sidecars Race , Drive Scott Coonfer, son Matt Coonfer. These guys are one hell of a team, they do not let off, and I have been in it hard with this team all year!

The modified Class was brought to life by the Racing team MRSI, pioneered by Monty Brown & son Mitch Brown (myself) We were watching traditional sidecars one day and we somehow thought we could do better. With some research & design, we brought to life our Leaning Sidecars.

I myself am on the MRSI 2008 Winning Rig a 2007 Honda XR650, A Baja winning Bike, This thing is heavy, it charges hard, and oh man does it throw the power down! My driver multiple Single Bike Champion Jim Titmus and I the monkey are fighting to take the Championship This year From our Prior Teammates Coonfer.

The MRSI Team owner, Monty Brown has a Husaberg 650 sidecar rig, after a bad crash last year he is taking up the rear on the podium.

This video is a VERY Controversial one in that it shows myself in a position that a monkey is rarely seen in, on the seat & sidecar. I always wish to follow the rules of all my racing and race fair. I admit that what I had done was an advantage to other teams, however in my eyes it was well within the rules stated and not an UNFAIR advantage to other teams, more so our new sister team, Coonfer.

Our Ice Racing brings hundreds of racers across Alberta & some from BC & surrounding provinces, we have had racers come from Washington state as well.

With our ice racing this year we have http://www.easystems.ca coordinating all our announcing & sound systems to bring the announcing straight to our spectators vehicles with our FM transmitters & big sound systems. Truly bringing our amateur sport above the rest.

Spectators can literally feel the snow roost coming off the bikes around the corners, walk through the pits & be 1 on 1 with National Canadian Champions of Ice Racing. Your $5 gate fee gets you an experience that no supercross ticket can get you!

The ContourHD camera was mounted on our New Rival Team’s Monkey for Sidecar Ice Racing.
Normally I use a goggle strap & some gorilla tape to stabilize the mount however i just had a circular mount and i used gorilla tape on that mount to the helmet and it worked perfect.
