    Domnarski Farm race

    I was thinking of doing the Domnarski Farm race in Warre on June 7th. Anyone done this race before? Is it worth doing? Technical, hilly, muddy? I would race sport which I believe is one 10 mile lap. Or I may choose to race in the fat bike category...can't decide. Thanks for sharing whatever you know.

    It's a great race in beautiful forests. This year it's dry, so I bet the trails will be in fantastic shape. It's bit more well rounded than many races in the region since it includes a mix of double track and singletrack and has some lengthy climbs. It's a 10 mile loop and starts with a good climb. It would be great on a fat bike since there are some long loose double track climbs. As a singlespeeder, I find it a difficult race to gear for and find myself walking a couple of short sections.

    Super bonus is that they pay cash to podium finishers in lower than pro categories.. only negative is that it takes forever to do the podiums.

    Bring a change of clothes and take a dip in the pond after

    Fat bike would be fun....my other bike though is a fully rigid 1x11 29er. Definitely faster. Biggest question for me is what tires to run....less or more aggressive?

    not a race that tire choice will make or break it. I run RacingRalphs, but something more aggresive like NobbyNic or Ardents would be fine. You should go fat!

    Thinking of riding my full rigid bike. Is it the type of course where I'll be missing having suspension?

    Great idea - I'll be on a rigid singlespeed . Great course for it
