Greetings and welcome to the Breck Fat Bike Finals. We have adjusted the start time to 4:30 and, as a result, LIGHTING SYSTEM is required. Voyager Made will be on hand with 15 light set-ups for Free Demo Use during the race
Big thanks to Breckenridge Ski Resort (Dave Little of Competition Department) for working with us. We are excited for this First Ever Fat BIke Event at Breck Ski Resort!
PRE-RIDING and WARM-UP
This will sound kinda funny coming from us but pre-riding will NOT BE AN OPTION.
This event is a special use authorization from the Breck Ski Resort. Please respect their wishes. The course will have a repeated loop section so you’ll get to see that on lap 1. For all sections that you hit only once it’s an even playing field for everyone! Don’t worry, there’s nothing gnarly out there!
Warm-up will be available on the Camel Back Teaching area and Lower Lehman Trail. Lower Lehman is directly across the ski slope from Beaver Run SuperChair. To get there, go slightly uphill of the entrance to the Burro Trail and hit the relatively flat groomed run immediately adjacent to Lower Silverthorne. This trail will part of the finishing descent for the actual race course so you’ll at least get to see that section. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
