About the Fat bike world Championships
The Borealis Fat Bike World Championships is in its sixth year, and we are excited to announce the race is NOT cancelled, it will be held in amazing Pinedale, Wyoming and the Wind River Brewing Company (here in Pinedale) will be fueling the party all weekend! We have also added a new event for the kickoff party on Friday night (Jan. 15). We will be playing Fat Bike Cornhole near WRBC! On Saturday, Jan. 16, we head up for the annual throwdown of fatties in the Winds. Yeah, it’s a race, and some serious athletes show up to race for the title of World Champion! Plenty of people, however, also wear costumes, shoot whiskey, and eat bacon of course, check out the vendors, drink some WRBC brews, and watch people slay laps on some killer trails at the base of the Wind River Mountain Range. It’s for all types of riders, from the racer to the first timer, with categories and laps for each. More than anything, Fat Bike Worlds is about riding fatties and chilling at 7200′ with a group of awesome people! You gotta get up to get down, so come on up!
World Championship Race
The World Championship race is the big kahuna of our races. 3 laps, 24 miles, the title, the glory, this race has it all!
The Sport category is still a race, it's still competitive, it's just a little shorter. 2 laps totaling 16 miles gets you to the finish on this one. It's replacing the Clydesdale race from previous years which was for folks over 200 pounds. We just removed the weight restriction to let more people join in the fun. If 5 laps feels too far, this is your race!
The Vanhelga is in honor of our sponsor 45NRTH and their awesome tires! This is a for fun kind of race. Participants will ride 1 8 mile lap in whatever getup they like. Crazy costumes are not required, but they are sure as hell encouraged!
This one's for the kids. We don't want to leave them out of the fun... well, not all of it. We know there are a lot of teams out there and this is their chance to compete in the Worlds. It will be 2 laps or 16 miles for the young-un's to complete their category.
All of the adult categories will cost $150 until December 31st, 2020 and then the price will go up to $175 on January 1, 2021. Be sure to register early to avoid the increase, and keep an eye on our social media sites for discount codes!
We know that teens don't always have a lot of dough and we want them to become biking enthusiasts for their whole lives so the cost of the High School categories is $50 until December 31st, 2020 and then the price will go up to $175 on January 1, 2021. And just like with the adults be sure to register early to avoid the increase, and keep an eye on our social media sites for discount codes!
Make sure you read up on the Racer Handbook before you ride. We want everyone to be safe and have fun!
