Equinox Fatbike Challenge

Welcome to the Equinox !!!

Bicyclists, skiers and runners compete at the 2012 Equinox Challege in West Yellowstone, Montana.

The 2nd Equinox Fatbike Challenge was held in the Gallatin National Forest on March 22nd and 23rd.

Riders can participate in 3 Hour, 6 Hour, 12 Hour or 24 Hour divisions as a relay team or soloist.

The start/finish is at the Rendezvous Ski Trails trailhead in West Yellowstone, MT.  This event will be held at the same time as the Equinox Ski Challenge, sharing a start/finish area and timing set up.  Also shared are the potluck, costumes, raffles, beverages, bonfire, cheers, food drive and all night awesomeness!

The course will include some sections of snowmobile packed trail and also smaller singletrack.  There will be no skiers or snowmobiles or runners on the course, just fat bikes!  It will be an out and back format with some one way side singletrack each way to spice it up.

All riders must be on tires 3.5 inches or wider.

All riders must swear to have fun!  Hah.

Please note, the Rendezvous Ski Trails are never open to fat bikes and all other winter trails in the Gallatin National Forest are also “closed to wheeled vehicles” which technically includes fat bikes.  Fat bike use on winter trails is by special event permit only.
