Years from now, an elite group of eight adventurous snow bike racers will be able to claim “I was at the 1st annual Togwotee Winter Classic…and you should have been there!”
I want to thank all of the racers who ignored the snowy race-day forecast and decided to join us at Togwotee Lodge for an epic adventure in less-than-ideal snow biking conditions. Despite the tough conditions, everyone finished and everyone was smiling. No racers attempted the 100-mile route this year.
I especially want to thank the generous sponsors who believed in and supported this first-year event:
RU Outside – snow bikers should absolutely check out their Tundra Boot
Fitzgerald’s Bicycles – quickly becoming, if not already, the largest snow bike dealer in the lower 48
Togwotee Lodge – not only a snowmobile resort; bring your bike and your skis too
Lastly, I want to personally thank Rick LaBelle, owner of RU Outside, and Andy Damman for their help on race day. Both of them went above and beyond to help me out with the aid station and patrolling the course.
