XiiR Extreme International Ice Racing Returns 

to the David S. Palmer Arena in Danville, IL!

This year's Motocross On Ice Event is shaping up to be the BEST yet! 

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.

The average car has a maximum 5,000 RPM's where as an ice speedway bike has a maximum 14,000 RPM's. It has 1600 razor-sharp steel studs on its tires added for traction and if that's not enough - there aren't any brakes.

Each rider gears his bike differently with 60 to 80 toothed sprockets, which are nearly the size of the wheel itself. Just wait until you see these machines in action!



George Carden Circus International has been bringing entertainment to children of all ages in every corner of the U.S. for years and now it is coming your way. We want you to come and join us and see why we are North America’s most loved family attraction.
