Numb Bum Track Update - Feb. 14
Feb. 13, we had 20 plus riders who came to practice at Sandy Beach, a
1.2km section was plowed in the early morning. (with a 14000 lbs
tractor) Everything went really well with no problems and very little
water (only got 2" under the old snow bank )
New Class at Numb Bum for the 6 hour teams!
Due to the cancellation of several 6hr races, the PDRA will introduce a new class for those that do not have lights and the setup to run a full 24 hour race. "THE RED EYE CLASS" will ride from the start till dusk, then the marshals will pull them out at the same time (lap). Then in the morning when the sun comes up, they will enter the race again till the end of the 24 hour race! The entry fee will be $80.00 which is the same as 2x 6hrs. The competing teams will still need a transponder and a CMRC license. (as they did for the 6hrs) These teams will get a free t-shirt and finishing plaque. AME MAGAZINE will be sponsoring trophies for the top 3 teams as well. Please Note, this Red Eye Class is not for points in the AEIRA series, this is just an opportunity for those who want to race but were unable due to the cancellation of Buck Lake and Telford Lake. It is mandatory that any team competing in this class do not have a light or lighting mounts so that it is easy for the marshals to distinguish which teams must be pulled off at night. As mentioned in the rules, any rider who participates in more than one class must pay for both classes or all the teams the person is racing with will be disqualified from the class/machine that rider has entered.

February 13 Buck Lake Cancelled.
The February 13th Buck Lake ice race has been cancelled due to thin ice. Please spread the word to whom this may concern. Ice holes had been drilled throughout the week to ensure ice thickness, but on Saturday a Bobcat broke through the ice near the lap count area.
At this time, the Numb Bum is still a go! Ice tests will be done on Monday and reports will be available on aeira.com
Track Conditions for Numb Bum 2005
Everything is looking very good for the Numb Bum as you can see by these photos. The parking area, pits, start area, lap count and the practice track have all had their initial plow. The thickness of the ice was 20" - 24" as February 4, 2005. Very little or no water found when plowing the ice!! Please note that the posts that were used in the past two year will not be used this year for safety reasons. The PDRA wishes every participant good luck !!!
