Cold Day's

With blackhawk's forecast being cold, What can you do to stay warm out on the track?

I purchased the liner to wear under the helmet for the neck/head and that helped a ton on Saturday at RA when it was cold.

I'm more worried about the hands/body though. I think some long johns are in order Gonna have to bring a sweater to wear over the leathers I think.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

UnderArmour ColdGear or other similar thermals should keep you warm and dry.

+1 on the Cold Gear. Silk glove and sock liners as well.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

Smear yourself in cooking grease and then a layer of seran wrap, you'll be fine.

What they said.

I usually wear ski socks, the thicker version of under armour, an extra long sleeve t-shirt or two, a fleece over the leathers, and a neck sock. I have ridden in the low 30s and had to take layers off I was so warm.

Of course, looking outside at the 2 inches of snow right now, you might also want to bring an MX bike or an ATV unless it melts first.

I am thinking about putting ice screws in a set of take offs. I will rule the track.

Get some thin gloves to put under your leather gloves. This is what gets the coldest on me and then my hands start to cramp. This is not good when you have to grab the brakes fast and hard.

I use silk liners for ski gloves, thin, and provide that extra layer.

I have some thin poly long john bottom, under armor cold gear top, and fleece neck gator. this stuff had me sweating in 40 degree riding temps at Freddie Spencer in January. The neck thing is the bomb and was like $12 REI.

I've also used a trash bag as a windblocker. I cut holes for my arms & head and wore it as a wife beater under my leathers. It really keeps the wind out and doesn't flap all over like wearing it on the outside of the leathers.

+2. I wore 2 layers of cold gear under my leathers ice riding in 15 degree temps and was just fine. Actually had to take the top layer off at one point. Good stuff.
