I am planning to ride Monday day session since I have the day off work. I'm hoping that the slightly warmer temps will make that ice sheet a bit more tolerable.

I have not been to Alpine Valley yet this year so may head out that way. Anyone else in the area send me a PM if you're heading out during the day session.

I rode Pine Knob on Saturday evening didn't make it up there until about 730pm and rode until about 1040p. It was very icy, not so much the ice cubes effect but there were definitely sheets of ice where I almost ate it because I was bombing and trying to lay in to a skid (thx muscle memory!) and what surprised me was a number of posthole boot holes scattered randomly near the rollers. I kept watching, figured I'd see someone catch a tip and eat it but everyone successfully avoided them.
