Huge congrats to John Phelps who persevered despite immense adversity to win the Fat Pursuit 200k race this year!
The Fat Pursuit 200k is no ordinary fat tire race. Organized in the midst of winter, this event pushes participants to their limits, demanding resilience, skill, and an unyielding spirit. The race is set against the backdrop of the stunning yet unforgiving terrain of Idaho. Competitors race through 200k of snow-covered trails and face extreme cold. This year temperatures hit a low -35f!
Despite these grueling conditions, John Phelps rose to the occasion with unwavering determination, finishing an impressive 15hours ahead of the next competitor.
His journey through the Fat Pursuit 200k was not just a physical feat but a testament to his mental fortitude and commitment to pushing boundaries. The relentless pursuit of victory in the harsh winter conditions showcased not only his skill as an athlete but also his ability to overcome challenges with grace.
Thank you John for allowing us to play a small part in your victory by helping to keep your nose and cheek protected as you pedaled through the night in such severe temperatures.
