Icycle 2014: photo recap
Photos by Vic Gedris
This was the 13th year for Icycle, the annual ice bike race at Dufferin Grove rink in downtown Toronto's west end. The event is organized by The Bike Joint's Derek Chadbourne and the after party is held at Bike Pirates.
Held on February 22 this year, the event raised $1,300 for the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund.
Dandy contributing photographer Vic Gedris took some fab photos for you to enjoy!
Men's final (above). We see the "Ice Stud" (flapping cape) trying to pass the "Ice Emperor" (left) on the inside.

Winner of the men's final, Justin Soares.
Two 'serious' contenders.
Last minute preparations for the chariot race.
Chariot race. The fellow in front is wearing a mask displaying the face of one of last year's competitors (who had worn a leopord-print leotard onesie.) This year was unseasonably warm - lucky for him! The Ice Emperor is wearing the Centurion-style helmet with the red plume.
Winner of the women's race, Linda Shin, taking the corner smoothly.
Jesse Demb givin'er.
Women's final winner, Linda Shin, with winning attire (and a go-pro helmet cam.)
Good to see some young people getting into the action.
Elite Rubber Class Race is always a crowd pleaser. Tommy (above left) has some interesting modifications on his front fork.

"Make some noise." The crowd always obliges.
Organizer, Derek Chadbourne ... and the many studs that made the event possible:
