January 23 – 27, 2019
The premiere bike event of the winter in Crested Butte is hands-down the Fat Bike World Championships. (It may actually be the only bike event of the year in CB, but still!) Arguably, it is the premiere winter bike event in the country! Fat Bike Worlds is so much more than a race. It’s 4 days of riding, sunshine, laughter, friends, and parties.
It kicks off on Wednesday, January 23 with a welcome party at the Brick Oven Pizzeria. Check in and enjoy FREE BEER!
Thursday, January 24 is the North Village Classic on the North Village trails, groomed by your very own CBMBA. This race is 10 miles long (8 laps on a 1.25-mile loop) and is for individuals or teams of 2 or 4. Surrounded by snowy peaks and epic vistas, this is truly one of The Most Scenic Fat Bike Rides in the country. Seriously. Look at this video!
Friday, January 25 is the on-snow Demo Day, also featuring the North Village Trails. Come and test ride some of the latest and greatest fat bikes on the market! Come out and try a fat bike for the first time or just throw your leg over a brand new 2019 fat bike.
Saturday, January 26: The Main Event. The Big Cheese. The Whole Honcho. (We know, we know . . . that’s not quite it.) The. Borealis. Fat. Bike. World. CHAMPIONSHIPS! The best trails. The best riders. The best party. This is what makes it The Best Day. Join us for a Fun 18 mile course (3 laps on a 6-mile loop) or the Championship Race, 30 miles (5 laps on a 6-mile loop).
Sunday, January 27: Finally, wrap up your weekend with a brand new event: the CB Winter Town Crit. This unique event will feature 45 minutes of racing on a loop through historic downtown Crested Butte. Pro Heat and Fun Heat available!
