What a great day yesterday! Thanks again to everyone who braved the frigid temps while racing, volunteering, or spectating!


Will you be grabbing hardware today???

Best of luck to all racers!


Online registration for Fat & Flurrious 2022 is now closed, but we will be offering day-of registration at North Country Cycle from 8 am to 9 am tomorrow before the race starts at 10.

Stiggs Brewery & Kitchen has again generously offered their brewhouse space and restrooms to be used pre-race for changing. Stiggs' 5 Year Anniversary party is tomorrow, so we encourage all racers to enjoy great food and brews after the 1 pm awards ceremony in the Stiggs parking lot.

North Country Cycle has been a huge help throughout the last few months as race prep has been ongoing, and they've handled all grooming and course prep. If you need any bike parts or accessories, Mike and crew will take care of you!

Thank you to the entire Boyne City community and our dedicated volunteers. This race wouldn't be possible without our incredible local support!


Online registration ends at 9 am tomorrow (Friday)! We'll also have day-of registration from 8 am to 9 am at North Country Cycle.

The course at Avalanche Mountain is firm and fast.

The forecast is calling for crisp air and sunny skies.

It's shaping up to be an excellent Saturday for racing!



We're just days away from Fat & Flurrious 2022!

The forecast looks cold and crisp, and the course at Avalanche Preserve should be firm and fast.

It takes a village to put on a bike race! We're still in need of volunteers to help out this Saturday (1/15) during Fat & Flurrious 2022 in Boyne City.

If you're interested in lending a hand, comment on this post, message our page, or email Lynn at [email protected].

Thanks to all of our volunteers, both those who have assisted with prep and those who will be helping on race day!


Avalanche Preserve in Boyne City is currently a winter wonderland - just what we were hoping to see less than a week out from Fat & Flurrious 2022!

Who's ready to race?!?

More typical winter weather has finally returned to Northern Michigan! We've gotten some fresh lake effect this week, and temps are chilly.

With continued cold weather in the forecast, conditions should be great for race day next Saturday (1/15)!

If you've been waiting to register, take the plunge now: https://fatandflurrious.com/register


Each year, Fat & Flurrious race proceeds are put toward new trail development in the Top Of Michigan Mountain Bike Association core region of Charlevoix and Emmet counties.

Proceeds from the upcoming race will be put toward planned jump lines and downhill trails at the Boyne Forest trail system. Flowtrack Mountain Bike Trails did an incredible job with the Double Dog trail that opened last summer, and TOMMBA has contracted with Flowtrack for the new trails that will be built on the same property.

Just another reason to sign up for Fat & Flurrious 2022!


Can you believe that race day is four weeks from tomorrow?!?

If you haven't registered for Fat & Flurrious 2022, check it off your list here: www.fatandflurrious.com

More race updates! One of the final permissions came in today and we are optimistic about the last one 🙌 🙌 We also sent out an email. Missed it? Click below 👇👇


Fat & Flurrious race update!! There are still some pending permissions for the event, however we are working hard to have a virtual race this year!
There will be a date range when you can complete the predesignated and self supported loops per your class. The exact courses and dates are TBD! However, if all goes through, there will be some cool new features this year that a virtual event has granted us. Also, this year ALL proceeds go towards TOMMBA for new trail development! Thank you for your patience and feel free to message us with any questions.


Soft opening announcement... more details soon!

Yes the Series is on rain, snow, freeze, thaw or pandemic.

There will be five events. Currently, Fat Chance and Dogman will be in person. Fat & Flurrious, A special Vasa replacement event and Huma Loopa Licious will be virtual.

Rather than scoring points and awarding cash prizes for the top finishers this year, each racer that registers for all five races will be sent a prize.

Fat & Flurrious 2020 01/22/2020

Thanks everyone for a great race!


Race photos to come soon! In the meantime, results can be found on the link below. Also, the winner of the big air comp was Josh Farmer!



Just got done grooming and taping the course. The trail is going to be like riding on a sidewalk tomorrow!
Points of consideration:
1. We forgot to take a picture today so this one is from last year
2. If we get a ton of snow, everything will be groomed again at 3 am. If that is the case, please buy Ron a beer.
3. The road right after the pavement will be icy.
4. Be sure to thank the crew at Short's Brewing Fat Bike Series SBFBS!
5. In your packet, there is one very important piece of paper, PLEASE read it!
6. Brakes slow you down, so go easy on them. Have fun tomorrow!


Weather update:
1. Yes, we are getting some warm weather from now until tomorrow afternoon.
2. It will dip below freezing Friday evening. The course will become very firm and fast for Saturday!
Short's Brewing Fat Bike Series’ first stop will be a rocket ship 🚀🚀🚀


2 more days until the first race of Short's Brewing Fat Bike Series SBFBS!!
Registration and packet pick up - 7:45 am
Race start - 10 am


Grooming out your runway to the great view at Avalanche!! Stoked to be the first stop on Short's Brewing Fat Bike Series SBFBS this Saturday!

Items of interest:
1. Stiggs Brewery & Kitchen is pitching in for some awesome prizes for podium finishers!
2. There will be a Top Of Michigan Mountain Bike Association beer on tap. If you partake, proceeds go right to building trails!
3. Just like all previous years, the race is used as a fundraiser to build more trails!
See you Saturday!
