Fat Bike Races
King Vasa Fat Bike Races, Saturday, February 8, 2020
Short's Grand Fat - 42km
Short's and Fat - 13km
The King Vasa Fat Bike Race is back once again this year as race number three in the Short’s Fat Bike Series. The King Vasa is one of two distance-based races along with the Fat & Flurrious. The time-based races include Fat Chance, The Dogman Challenge and The Beard of Zeus.
For 2020, racers have two distances to chose from: A 1-lap, 13K and a 2-lap, 42K race. Each race will run in the counter-clockwise direction. Whether they are riding the short or long version, racers can expect nearly 2.5 kilometers of two-track rollout pleasure before hammering into the singletrack. Long racers should be prepared for the infamous climb out of Rachel’s Valley before they hit the new Strombolis Loop and The Skyline Trail. Finally, it wouldn’t be King Vasa without the heart pumping Yeti’s Revenge section which will ever so smoothly dump the long racers out on to the Red Line and finally down Loggers Run. Oh, and don’t worry, short racers, you will get a taste of Yeti’s Revenge as well before entering Intermingling and then on to Logger’s Run to the finish line at Timber Ridge.
Both races feature some of the best NMMBA trails on the map along with plenty of Short’s brew at the after party and awards ceremony in the Event Tent.
