This race was race 4of 5 in the new Fat-Bike race Series in WI.
The one coming up on March 3rd is called the Sweaty Yeti. We'll be doing that as well as some winter camping after the race....and some beer drinking, I suspect.

I teamed up with a couple guys around my age after I got there.
We finished in the middle of the pack.
Blake started out:
Duff went out 2nd. We all got 3 laps. I did a warmup lap before the race and Blake tried to get his 4th in time but was5-6 minutes late for it to count. Blake was doing a lap in 17-20 min. I was about the same, Duff was 28-30 minutes...maybe. It really didn't matter.
Bear Paw is on the Wolf River, a big canoe/kayak spot in the summer. A few years ago a tornado came through here and wiped the resort out. The lone large White Pine was all that was left of the forest and the building. They rebuilt.
Wolfman was out and about....yours truly...
