The Chugach Fat Bike Bash in Valdez, Alaska

This March, Levitation 49 brings us a new twist on fat bike racing, along with an event packed festival.  Think steep big mountain skiing meets mountain biking on super fat 5″ tires.  The marquis event over the March 1-5, 2017 festival is the Fat Free Ride Worlds Final on Thompson Pass.  It is the snowiest place in Alaska, recording 551.5 inches of snow per year on average.


Not only will there be an adrenaline packed Free Ride Final, but plenty of other events for all of the family to enjoy including the Ursa Major Northern Lights Criterium, street party with costumes, a cross country fat bike race along with a Hoodoo Brewery sponsored Rodeo.
