Einstein Cycles has been extremely fortunate to partner with Timber Ridge Resort and RV Park, and it has allowed us to put together a top-tier fat bike race right in our own backyard! Three of this season's four races will take place at Timber Ridge. Combine those three races and our weekly Friday Night Lights Ride, Timber Ridge is going to be the place to be for fat bikes.
That's where it will all kick off on December 21. Celebrate the Winter Solstice at Thirst Mutilator Rampage Fat Bike Race, a lap race that will take on some of the best trails at Timber Ridge. Choose from one and two hour divisions, with Solo, Duo and Master's classes available for both men and women.
The second event is the big enchilada, Fat Chance! at Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa. This is not only the second race of the Northern Michigan Fat Bike Series, but also the second leg of the Great Lakes Fat Bike Series as well! Some of the best fat bike racers in the WORLD will be on-hand, as well as all the local heroes and weekend warriors. There's a class for everyone, divided by 25km or 50km distances, with Master's and Duo class available in the 50km!
It's just under a month until race number three, The ERMAHGERDNESS Attack and Hustle Fat Bike Race. Plan on a unique course at Timber Ridge and all the same good fun. Fireside lounging, great trails and a lot of fun. Save February 1 on your calendars, tell your friends, tell your in-laws, tell everyone you know.
The Grand Finale is March 7 with Beard of Zeus Bunny Hop Fat Bike Race! Just like in 2014, this event will be run at the same time as Suds'n'Snow at Timber Ridge, offering a built-in mass of enthused spectators all along the course. We'll bring back what was our best received course ever, including the epic ascent of Mount Von-Poo that shredded the group last year. Fun, wild fans, great people and a microbrew festival? We wouldn't change a darn thing.
