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.

We’re switching up our race this year and holding it on a new, fun course located at the new Cross-Country center near our summer driving range! The course will offer 360 degrees viewing for spectators. The 90-minute race will have single sections to break up the pack and add some excitement to the race!  Helmets are required for rider safety.

All races start at 10 am.


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

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