Windchill was -25 here this morning. Not getting cold yet. Ive had frostbite on my face a few times last year. Riding 120km/h in -40C isnt recommended. Especially when your glasses fog up and you have to ride without goggles. 6 months for red marks to go away.

My brother got it bad but not black. His skin peeled and was sore for 3 weeks. He got a beak for his goggles and a different face mask.

I got frost bit on my nose last Sunday, up in ganch's country, riding with my cousin Brett. All the skin came off and it got all red and pusey. It isn't bad now and it never stoped me from riding this week.
