December 23, 2019 Update & Results
What a success this years’ 5+ Hours of Light Fat Bike Festival was!
Great conditions, awesome people, huge efforts and big smiles.
In total, there were 78 riders.
214 laps, which is 1,926 kms total.
We want to thank our sponsors who helped make this event what it was.
Icycle, Cadence and Arctic Star printers.
There were so many awesome prizes up for grabs.
For the Men:
Francois Pigeon, Steven Ball, and Crispin Struder all had 8 laps and they finished in that order.
For the Women:
Maren ???? (please contacts us for your prize) and Jenn Baardseth both had 6 laps.
That’s pretty impressive.
For the Teams:
James Mitchell and Adam Mcdougal (team Jadam) made 8 laps. No small feat.
Bryan Unrah and Joselyn Pow Smasher had 8 laps as well but came in slightly after the sunset. Still pretty impressive.
There were no reported injuries.
We are so appreciative of the Ski Patrol’s keenness and engagement to be there and jump into action if required.
Thank you Ruth and your partner.
Next time you see a Yukon Parks employee, thank them for the hard work they put into taking care of our gems like Wolf Creek Campground.
HUGE THANK YOU to Jim Hawkins for setting, grooming, tree clearing, tweaking, and pre-ride inspecting the course for us over the many weeks prior to the event.
Gold star CMBC Membership for Jim.
Aaron Foos also put in many hours flagging and pre-smashing the fresh snow on the course on race day and officiated on the course during the meaty part of the day. Thank you Aaron.
Both Jim and Aaron welcomed us into their back yard and liaisoned with their communities so that local users weren’t squished by our fat tires.
Again, Thank you both.

Thank you to all of you hardcore fat bikers.
Many new faces with a lot of energy and spirit.
We feel fortunate to be able to put these events on with so many willing participants.
Thank you for coming out…and bringing lots of great food.
Phew! Nobody starved but Dan sure wanted a coffee by days end.
That wraps up 2019 folks.
Thanks for coming to this and all of our events this year.
We feel 2019 was VERY successful and we aim to make 2020 a good start to the next decade.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from CMBC!
