Xtreme International Ice Racing

When: Sat., Jan. 9, 7:30 p.m. 2016

The adrenaline-averse already know that motorcycles are risky. For starters, you have to balance on two wheels and hold on while you steer, and there's also that whole wind-in-your-face thing. Sure, that's exhilarating, but bugs! Other wheeled things! The elements! The riders from Xtreme International Ice Racing live for all of the aforementioned, but even that's not enough for them. They ride — nay, race — on ice without brakes and with metal studs on their tires! For. Real. To hold onto your seat as you witness twenty-plus fast-paced races whip around a frozen tundra, head to the Family Arena (2002 Arena Parkway, St. Charles; www.familyarena.com) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $5 to $25 — the adrenaline rush is included, but parking is $10 extra.
