From the start, athletes will head south across the parkland and hop onto the trail system that takes you below Saskatchewan Drive.  The trail climbs up next to 76ave where you will follow the paved trail down Keillor Road.  Near the bottom of the road, you will turn right and follow the lower trail westbound to the open bowl at Whitemud Creek Ravine.  Following the ravine, you will ride to the open bowl by Whitemud Creek and make a left turn followinng the paved/snow packed trail back up to Saskatchewan Drive.  Return to the finish/lap point the same way you started.  

Enjoy the snow, descents...and climbs!

START ORDER

All riders are expected to be in position in the start area before 12:45pm.

The ride starts at 1:00pm sharp.

Riders are asked to self-select an appropriate starting position within the start area.  Finding the right spot that best matches your fitness level, riding confidence and anticipated finish time is important for a smooth start for everyone.  Chat with the rider next to you to see where you fit.  Fastest riders to the front of the pack.

Remember, your official ride time only starts when you cross the start line so it doesn’t matter how far back you are!

________________________________

CHIP TIMING

All riders will receive an electronic timing chip. At the end of the ride, you’ll have information about your overall riding time. Results will be posted on our website by midnight on event day.  Results will also be emailed out to you.

Please note, improperly mounted timing chips could result in errors with your time. 
Ask our timing team at the registration for a demonstration of how to properly mount your chip.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Ride:  Only true fat bikes are allowed in the event (no mountain bikes as the tire width damages the snowpacked trails in the winter). 

I don't have a FatBike?: For those without a ride, a limited number of demo bikes may be available through our partners. Come to the event site early and check out our partners!

Age: You must be at least 14 years of age to participate. Riders under the age of 18 must have their registration application signed by a parent or guardian.
