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 7:30 pm.

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.Location: Peoria River Front Association
