The Fat Fish Bike Race

The smell of the pines, the rustic feel of the terrain. The clean snap of the air. Now let us bring that experience right to you, the cycling community, the camaraderie of The Fat Fish Bike Race.  

The Fat Fish 40 or Fenton 100 has a fat bike specific category, open class, self supported with prizes for best overall male and female riders. The race will include a neutral roll out with a total mileage of forty two miles. Each category can win $500 for best overall. Additional podium prizes will be offered based on participation.

The race is now open to individuals who want to register and race on a bike other than fat. “Non-fat” category is defined as tires less than 3.8 inches. This would include MTB, CX and gravel bikes. We will offer $250 for best overall in male and female rider categories.

Registration is $40.00 per individual.

Included in the registration fee, a meal ticket for a beer and a brat “Wisconsin Style” after the race for each individual rider.
