Gary Crandall, founder and director of the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, reminded me this morning that the deadline for the 50 ways to an entry contest is coming up fast: July 1.
Crandall judges essays, songs, poems, photos and films submitted by mountain bikers shut out in the race's lottery for entries. This year, about 600 registrations were sent back, setting the field for the competitive essay contest. Check out the rules and regulations here.
The 29th running of the Fat Tire races, on Sept. 17, will include 1,850 riders in the Fat Tire 40 and 900 in the Short & Fat, making up one of the largest mountain bike events in North America.
With this essay submission, Shaun and Julie Meehan went after the Fat Man where it counts.
