2020 version of the 45NRTH/Cannondale Fat Bike Series, race #2 at Georgian Nordic.

A refinement on last year's loop. Conditions as of race week are currently superb. Plenty of fast and firm packed and groomed trail, a balanced mix of double-track (75%) and exciting single-track (25%). A few challenging climbs, including on Long Otter, Fisher, and Grizzly. Lots of smiles on the flowy sweeping turns and roller-coasters on Bear and Bear Cub.

Current hardpack conditions make studded tires unnecessary, but could still be helpful. Expected lap times 30-35min depending on fitness and skill. All of the course is rideable by intermediate riders and above, but you'l be using your lower gears in a few spots
