    Only a 25K race for the advanced section? I'm not sure what that is since in America we use miles instead of kilometers, but it doesn't sound like much of a race.

    You take the width of your rim, 100 mm (have you ever seen it listed in inches?) and put 250,000 of them side by side and that's how far it is.

    No thanks is necessary.

    Crash, you're the man.

    In America, why not just say it's 15.5 miles?

    wildmedvt, yes, I did the longer version of the Steamboat Coureur last year and I would sign up for the Summit race in a heartbeat but I won't be doing any fat bike race where I have to wear a helmet. I won't get on my road bike without one, but I don't do a helmet on the fatty.

    Most races are in kilometers- the Standard Unit of Measure (SI Units). Even in 'Merica.

    I don't think that head injuries care if you get them on a fat bike or a road bike or even a big wheel. YMMV

    Gizzard, many of the fat bike races are actually stated in miles like Arrowhead, the Iditarod, ITI, Tuscobia, Big D, etc. As it should be. I think it's mostly the small races that want to sound big that use kilometers.


    That's funny. I don't see XC skiers wearing helmets. I don't see runners wearing helmets. I don't see snowshoers wearing helmets.

    Those are the speeds of fat bikes in this race.

    There is one up Ogden Canyon by Pineview Reservoir. I think it's USFS.

    Not sure? If you stayed at Pineview though, you'd be right by the Wheeler TH and miles of riding
