***EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER & TRAIL CONDITIONS***


Ultimate Fat Bike Challenge


The Ultimate Fat Bike Challenge will be a 40ish minute (estimated) time trial using a multi-lap format on groomed trails. Fat Bike riders will compete to log the fastest total time to ride a predetermined number of laps on a closed course.

Each lap will be approximately 1.5 miles in length. NOTE: As weather and snow/trail conditions can have a dramatic impact, race coordinators will estimate the suitable number of laps based on a 40 minute race length for the A(Expert) Level riders. Level B (Sport) & C (Beginner) riders will ride less laps accordingly. The actual number of laps will be announced on Thursday, February 23rd.

No bike, no problem! Velo City Cycles will have demo bikes available. Just let us know during registration that you will need a bike.

Categories:
We will offer three race categories for both men and women ranging from A (expert), B (sport), to C (beginner). No Tandem category.

Registration: Pre-Registration is required.
$20 Registration fee until 11:59pm on Friday, February 24th.
$25 Day of event registration fee

NOTE: Registration will close at 10:30am on Saturday, February 25.

Don't wait to get in on the action!

When:
Time trial format racing will take place between 12:00-3:00pm on Saturday, February 25th.

NOTE: The race course will also be open from 9:00-11:30am on Saturday, February 25th for pre-riding/warm-up.

Where:
The race will start and finish at Ridge Point Community Church. This will be the same location (just outside) as the Ultimate Cycle Challenge, an indoor team fundraising event taking place the same day. If you are not already planning to participate in both events, be sure to come in and check out what the Ultimate Cycle Challenge is all about.

This race is for anyone who wants to find out what the new fat bike craze is all about as well as for those who already know and just want to challenge themselves and friends for bragging rights. Riders will range from elite road, cycle-cross, and mountain bike racers to those of you just looking for a fun new challenge.

Timing: We will be utilizing RFID overhead chip timing services.
