Claiming it! ... "it" being solidly middle of the pack.

The 2021 Fat Bike Loppet was run like an ITT. Riders where spaced out with seeded starting times, and released at 10 second intervals. It was a very well run event!

The course was mostly groomed ski trails, and made the drop-bar Pusgley an advantage, but we had two laps of single-track trails that left me swearing. The course was close to 2,000 ft of climbing (correction: nearly 1,500 ft climbing that felt like over 2,000 ft) ... oof! Also some fast descents, getting up to 30 mph on snow is nerve-wrecking! I ended up finishing the 29k course in 1:29:44 for 47th of 95 riders.

BTW - this Toad rode to/from the race for a total of 30 miles
