2019 Results: Mountain State Fat Bike Champs



Sunday February 3rd 2019, on a surprisingly warm and sunny winter morning, 82 fat bikes took the line at the 3rd annual Mountain State Fat Bike Champs in Canaan Valley, WV at the Whitegrass Ski Touring Center. The center piece of a season of fat bike fun, this race is an xc style lap race on groomed cross country ski trails. Conditions held firm despite the warm temps, and the result was a perfect course. With a moto style start, racers funnel into the first trail and our across the mountain to find rolling terrain on a 2.2 mile lap. Early leads were established by race favorites Rob May and Chris Hays of Dred.not Racing in the XXC race and in the Mens XC 2 time winner Zach Bittinger of CTC Racing took a strong early lead as well. The Womens XC field was strongly contested with tight margins between racers. Laura Hamm of the highly revered Moon Stompers taking a strong lead. For more information, visit www.wvfat.com
