Due to a number of circumstances both in and out of our control, and an admittedly late start in getting organized this year we're going to take a break from the Singletrack Showdown this year. Sorry for the folks that were looking forward to the event. See you in 2020. We are however, more organized for the Big M Firetower Fat Tire bike race on March 14, 2020. We expect registration to be open soon for that race.Cleck here for details on that race.

Thanks to Doug M. for the 2013 video, he called the race, "stupid fun," we think that's quite appropriate.. We got 13" of snow that second year and it was really before fat bikes, and grooming were a thing. We're ready for anything now. Except ice...
