The First Annual Fat Fish Forty was a success.

Blessed with beautiful May weather after a colder than normal April, ninety riders attacked a course that was a combination of snow mobile/ATV trails, tarmac, logging roads and single track.  Ages of the riders ranged from youth development team members to seasoned masters category racers. The young riders that raced were exceptional in managing a difficult course. Many of the riders raced on fat bikes and the non-fat category riders used a range of tire selections though found that cx and gravel tires were not ideal for the more technical terrain two-thirds of the way into the 40 mile course.

A one day Wisconsin trail pass was included in this year's registration this allowed riders to use the Gandy Dancer which is an essential part of the Fat Fish Forty experience. Next year we will have an option to buy the day pass for the race for an additional cost as many of our riders buy a yearly Wisconsin trail pass.
