The Solstice Chase Fat Bike Race is a celebration of Winter, a community festival, and yes a BIG TIME BICYCLE RACE! As this is a big scale bike race drawing riders of all abilities from across the country, and the first event of this year's Great Lakes Fat Bike Series, we're excited to be welcoming a bunch pro racers to this year's event! Many of these pro & elite racers will be in pursuit of the HUGE CASH PRIZE for the fastest male and fastest female in the 42k event!
The first pro racer that we'll announce will be racing at this year's Solstice Chase - with more to come is.... JEFF HALL! Jeff Hall has won more mountain bike races across the US, and internationally than you can shake a stick at! He is one of the gentlemen of the racing world, a family man, works full time at bike industry supplier QBP (where I used to work), and still manages to crush it on his bike! We are thrilled to have Jeff competing at the 2015 Solstice Chase, as returning champion - welcome Jeff!
I recently asked Jeff how he was feeling about the coming event, and following are his thoughts:
"I am very excited for the Solstice Chase, being it is the first winter race of the year for me this year. I'll be out on my new LaMere fat bike for the first time and really testing the legs for the first time since winning the 2015 Chequamegon 40. I really like the wide open fast course, it reminds me of the 40 with hopefully some snow. My preparations are still just riding a lot of miles back and forth to work. Being it is my second year of fat bike racing I know how hard these races are and what to expect with the different weather and tire selections. Having such a cool location and the big barn, most likely I will have my wife and kids with me."
