Beach Breaker fat bike race

 This was my first ever ride on a fat bike and i was keen to see how the Blizzard would go. Thanks to sponsor Rocky Mountain for bringing me a bike to the race i was able to give the first ever Beach Breaker event a crack. The track was rolling and rainy conditions made the race fun but hard.
We got a good start and hit the first single track section in the front group, But passing was hard going and i waited a bit longer than i should on some parts and near the end of lap 1 i had fellow Rocky rider Mudgey for company, I tore up the next tech section and got a gap of about 15 seconds and after that i paced my race and was happy to keep the gap, We rolled in 3rd overall and 1st vet. Great event and my first ever fat bike race done and with a win to add to 2 top 10 crit road races, first home in a 100+ mile sportive, 4th in bikefest 12 hour solo and 7th in the pro/am off camber xc series its been a fun year. Next up 24-12 next weekend in a team of 4 for rocky mountain.
