Friday, January 31: 6:00 – 7:30 pm
The Trailhead, 1221 Theodore Wirth Pkwy

An awesome spectacle, our Fat Tire Team Sprints are a blast of fast fat biking fun! Grab a friend and join us in a fun night of racing at The Trailhead!

Teams of two riders will race alternating laps on a 1 to 1.5k trail. The race is primarily on the skate deck, with some forays onto the single track. The course will be partially lit and there is always ambient light, and as such bike lights and/or headlamps are optional.

The format will be a standard ABAB race, so one rider will race laps 1 and 3, and the other will race laps 2 and 4. The Fat Tire Sprints have no qualification round; competitors go immediately into seeded heats of four to six teams. The top riders from each heat advance to the next heat, culminating in the finals. All racers will be guaranteed a minimum of two heats, as those who don’t make the main draw cut in the first round compete in the consolation bracket.
