Thanks to my recent addition of a fat bike to my fleet of bikes, I had my first race of the season on January 3rd at the Überwinterin Fat bike event held in the Stowe Vermont. Uberwinterin is part of a series of fat bike events called “Le Grand Fat Tour”. The Le Grand Fat Tour is a fat bike series held at various spots in Vermont and Canada that are designed to promote the sport of fat biking. They usually feature a race, fat bike demos, group ride, fire pits, food, beer and fun. Uberwinterin’s race was called the uberscramble and was my first Fat Bike only race.

What once was considered a cycling “fad” is now a full on organized segment of the sport. Case in point, here in the Upper Midwest we are sitting on two fat bike racing series: The Great Lakes Fat Bike Series and the Wisconsin Fat Bike Series. I picked up a Salsa Mukluk 2 during early spring so I had limited time on a fat bike in the snow and after a summer/fall recovering from injury and no racing (not even CX) I was eager to get racing again.
