Whenever someone is way ahead of the curve, we always look back saying “why didn’t I think of that?” I don’t know if this idea is ahead of the curve, or simply off the curve and into the weeds.
How about this…Ice Speedway in Florida.
This crazy sport seems to be very popular in Europe and Russia. Why not? The guys who do it are very skilled, half crazy and the bikes haul ass.
Check out that picture: they are not wrecking, they are cornering. The bike tires are filled with enormous spikes to get a bite in the ice, and as a result, are super dangerous.
An ice racing show consists of a whole bunch of heats (20?) where the riders accumulate points. It is fast-paced and exciting; those guys can ride and are super aggressive.
Why wouldn’t this work on the ice of a hockey stadium during the hockey off-season? Three races in 5 days, held in towns like Tampa and Miami where they have hockey arenas. Do it during the speedway off-season too, so the competitors could enjoy some time in sunny Florida.
Alas, I do not have a pile of money to risk on this. Who knows if it would work…
