Cold Weather Doesn't Stop Snowmobile Racers

The below zero temperatures aren't keeping some sports enthusiasts indoors this weekend in Grand Forks.

The below zero temperatures aren't keeping some sports enthusiasts indoors this weekend in Grand Forks.

The 2011 Grand Cities 100 Race is going on with snowmobile racers from all over the country.

Racers say they even use duck tape on their faces to stop from getting frostbite in below zero temperatures.

One man from Gillette, Wyoming says this weather is quite a change.

"Well it's not as much fun as if it was 15 but part of it's just being out here and you have a comradery with the other guys as far as it's cold and everybody goes through the same thing." snowmobiler Justin Wnkler said.

More than 350 people took part in the races.
