I will be sending out a race update to registered riders tomorrow. I'll update everyone on weather conditions at that point.

I've had a lot of questions about EZ up tents (deer blinds, ice shanties, etc). We didn't want people setting them up because we have a limited amount of space to put them. But with the weather getting nasty we think we can make room for a few. So we will offer space for tents, but it will be limited, first come first serve.

Homebrew fat bikes with skinny rear tires will be considered fat bikes for this race.

when we put the race together we were afraid that we might not get that many people registering, so we allowed homebrew fat bikes and we offered a skinny bike division. As of today we only have 3 people in the skinny bike division.

I was planning on being there to roll out the two new Quiring fatbike frames, however, some things stood in the way.

Scott and I are penciling in the MMBA Annual Meeting for the Quiring fatbike rollout.

Looks like snow was in abundance for the get together!

Man, I wish I could of been there!!

Thanks.
There were many people taking pictures with real cameras in all different places on the course. I hope we see these somewhere someday. I don't like posting too many of mine and filling up the forum since they tend to be poor-quality cell phone pics and I don't have a good eye for proper photography.

Ok, I have to admit, that was a lot more than I expected. The Farm Team did a great job putting on the race. Check out how the race went:
