X-Treme International Ice Racing Returns to the PCC on 1/17!

Walters Brothers Harley-Davidson Presents

X-treme International Ice Racing

At the Peoria Civic Center

Wednesday, January 17th at 7:30pm!

 

PEORIA- Walters Brothers Harley-Davidson is proud to bring Peoria’s newest obsession to the Peoria Civic Center Arena! The date is set for X-treme International Ice Racing to play in the Peoria Civic Center Arena on Wednesday, January 17th at 7:30pm. It’s one of the fastest growing winter sports, and fans around the globe are going wild for it.

Tickets are $6, $10, $15, $20 and $25. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 27th at 10am at Ticketmaster.com, The Toyota Box Office at the Peoria Civic Center or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Starting Wednesday, November 1st tickets will also be available for purchase at Walters Brothers Harley-Davidson located at 615 Maxwell Rd, Peoria IL.  Visit http://www.waltersbroshd.com/ for directions and hours.

 

XiiR has two professional classes: The Speedway Bike class and the Quad class. Speedway bikes and quads are modified to compete in an indoor ice arena. There are over 2000 metal studs added to the tires, and the most extreme part…there are NO BRAKES! Its engine is equivalent to a 1200cc crotch rocket engine in a mountain bike frame, 4-stroke, 4-valve engine that runs on nitro methanol. Four laps on a speedway bike compares to 10 minutes on a motocross bike. Each rider gears his bike differently with 60 to 80 toothed sprockets, which are nearly the size of the wheel itself.  This event will also feature dirt track bikes and local flat track riders Robbie “Bugs” Pearson, Andrew Hobson and Shane Vance.

 

But don’t take our word for it- see it for yourself! Don’t miss the chance to see up to 25 races on the ice by elite riders from all over the world.
