9th Annual Iron Fish Distillery Fat Chance Fat Tire Bike Race
9th Annual Iron Fish Distillery Fat Chance Fat Tire Bike Race

Iron Fish Distillery Fat Chance is the staple of fat biking in Northern Michigan, and is back again for another legendary race at Crystal Mountain with new and familiar faces.

The race will be held on the Otter Trail loop and this year we'll be racing clockwise! The new 90 Minute Category Trail Loop course is 3 miles of high speed wide trail and a new single track section. The 45 Minute Category Trail Loop will be wide open beginner friendly trails, perfect for the fat bike enthusiast just getting into racing. Each lap in will add its own new fat tire challenges. Helmets are required for rider safety.

All races start at 10am. 

All registration includes chip timing, race bib, and a coupon for a post-ride beverage and chili or soup.

Early Bird Registration (November 12 - 27): $40 per rider.
Cost goes up to $50 beginning November 28, 2021. Day-of registration is not available.

Online registration will close at Noon on Friday, January 28, 2022.

Packet pick-up will be held beginning Friday, January 28 at the Crystal Center. Racers are asked to park in Lot L at the entrance to the resort to reduce congestion in our skier parking lots. Thank you! 

If the race is cancelled for any reasons related to COVID-19 restrictions, your registration fee will be deferred to 2023. No refunds.

A cash prize and medal will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in each 90-minute category. The top 3 finishers from each category of the 90-minute race will win a cash prize!  Plus there will be plenty of swag from Crystal Mountain, Iron Fish, Up Bike TC, KOLO TC and Kona Bikes.
