Record high temps greeted racers for this year's running of Farmer's Fat Bike Race.  The winter temps disappeared the friday prior, taking with it almost all of our snow.  What it left for us, though, was plenty of bare trail we don't normally get to ride in the dead of winter.

We once again awarded our famous shovel trophies, cash purse and a huge pile of sponsor prizes from 616 Bicycles, Twin Six, Ergon, Optic Nerve, Salsa, Soigneur.  The race could never have happened this year without the support of Ada Bike Shop.  Keep in mind that the trails at Cannonsburg are open to ride all winter!

Results from the race can be found at 42-85.com.  Jack Kunnen has a huge stash of photos available on his website jhkunnenphoto.com.  There's an amazing video and write up of the event at xxcmag.com

Thanks to all of you who came out on Saturday to help make this the biggest fatbike event in Michigan!  We're already working on next year's race and we can't wait to have you back.


  1. You guys are really enjoying biking. I would also do this during my free time in the afternoon. Thanks for sharing this.
