Borealis Fat Bike World Championships

New Richmond, WI


The 7th annual BOREALIS Fat Bike World Championships p/b Pure Fuel moves to the midwest this year to New Richmond, WI.  This is the original festival of fat bikes that originated in Crested Butte, CO and  celebrates fat bikes and the people who ride them… in the winter! Whether you are a professional racer looking to defend your title, or a novice who pedals minimally and parties maximally, this event is for YOU!
