Welcome to the Second Annual Chugach Fat Bike Bash featuring a little something for everyone from fun-loving fatties to cross-country specialists, and downhill adrenaline junkies, the Bash is a family- and spectator-friendly fat bike rodeo and the debut of the Fat Freeride World Championships.
This is not your standard issue long-distance sufferfest. We just want to have fun. New this year! Under-18 Junior Divisions for all events.
Friday and Saturday's events are designed to be exuberant and welcome a diversity of ages, skills and tire widths. We've chosen race routes and venues for their scenic value as much as their challenge, so plan on taking lots of photos and vids. Bring friends, family, silly costumes, good sportsmanship and the ability to laugh at yourself. There will be rules but rules sticklers who can't lighten up may be ushered to a time-out room.
The Big Deal is the debut of the Fat Freeride World Championship on Thompson Pass. We're pushing the envelope from fat bike's reputation for endurance to adrenaline. Just asValdez gave birth to big mountain skiing, we hope to inspire fat biking to roll in brave, new directions. It should be quite a ride!
Please join us for a weekend of merriment and wow moments.
