The Frisco Nordic Center will host the 7th Annual Frisco Freeze Fat Bike Race on Saturday, February 18, 2023. The race will start at 3:00 pm outside the Nordic Center lodge and will offer the only chance this season to ride a fat bike on the Frisco Nordic Center trails. Like in 2022, the course will avoid soft singletrack, and racers will complete two laps of groomed Nordic ski trails for a total distance of 14k. Juniors will complete one lap for a total distance of 7k. The racecourse will be open from 2:00 – 3:00 pm on race day to offer registered racers a chance to pre-ride.
Racers can register for one of six categories: open men, open women, masters men 45+, masters women 45+, junior boys 17 & under, and junior girls 17 & under. Awards will be given to the top three racers in each category. The awards ceremony and post-race party will take place immediately following the race at the Frisco Nordic Center, where pizza, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.
Registration fees are $45 for adults and $35 for youth 17 & under, and will include a commemorative gift. Pre-registration will close at 12:00 pm on Friday, February 17, 2023, and day-of registration will be available from 1:30 pm-2:45 pm outside of the Frisco Nordic Center.
