The Solstice Chase Fat Bike Race is a celebration of Winter, a community festival, and yes a BICYCLE RACE! As this is a big scale bike race drawing people from across the country, and the first event of this year's Great Lakes Fat Bike Series, we're excited to be welcoming a number of elite/pro racers to this year's event!
I've really enjoyed getting to know Alicia, her husband Matt, and their children since opening Cyclova XC here in St. Croix Falls! Matt and Alicia are at the core of the Woolly Bike Club - and making both World Class mountain biking and fat biking happen in St. Croix Falls. In addition to giving much to the community and raising a family, Alicia somehow manages to train and race mountain bike at an elite level. This year, she was 2nd in the ladies Elite/Pro Minnesota Mountain Bike Race Series - with many top finishes throughout the season! Alicia is certainly a racer to watch when ever she is on the start line!
I recently spoke with Alicia about the Solstice Chase, and her fat biking season. Following is what she had to say about the event:
"Excited to be racing fat bike this year and even more excited that hometown Solstice Chase is the first in the GLFBS! I'm also pumped that the GLFBS will include several races in the Twin Cities area and hoping to catch the Fat Bike Birkie."

Remember, the Solstice Chase welcome fat bikers of all stripes - from first timers to pro's. This year's course will be more rider friendly, with more fat bike specific single track (more "flowly" and less steep than last year), and course conditions look to be pointing toward very fast times on the course.
Not interested in riding? Be a part of it all by volunteering, spectating, ringing a cowbell, chatting with the many bike vendors (45NRTH, Twin Six, HED, Locally Geared, and Salsa Cycles) on hand, or have amazing food or drink from Cafe Wren & A Wandering Fire!
