Beau Petersen of Beau Petersen Photography and Video Productions, Superior Travel Planning joined us for the 7th Annual Fat Bike Worlds in New Richmond, WI last month. For those who may not know, Beau grew up in New Richmond, WI, and spent several years during his youth working at the @New Richmond Golf Club. So, to have this New Richmond native back on his home turf doing what he loves was pretty epic.
If you want to see what Fat Bike Worlds is all about, take a look at the video he and his staff produced! Beau captured the fun, competitive spirit, live music, ice bar, bourbon, bacon, costumes and community…all with the purpose of bringing back the flavor of grassroots bike festivals of old. Thank you Beau Petersen, Alan Ebbert for the awesome drone footage, and all of our 2022 sponsors who made this event possible. We are so excited to do it all again in 2023!

Fat Bike Worlds founder Dave Ochs was a guest on Minnesota Live Friday, January 28 to kick of the 3-day Fat Bike Worlds 2022 weekend in New Richmond, WI.  FBW 2022 was a huge success and will be returning to Wisconsin for 2023.  Stay tuned for dates and more information.

Race Director Chris Stevens recently joined the Radio podcast to talk all things Fat Bike Worlds.  Hear all about what is in store this January in New Richmond, WI

Leaving the Mountain West for New Richmond, Wis., this year checks several boxes for the Fat Bike World Championships, used to rolling in the shadow of the Rockies.

David Ochs, executive director of Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association, created the event and said as a “world” event it’s meant to move around — to celebrate fatbiking. The first was in 2016 in Crested Butte, Colo. Last year, the event happened on a private ranch in Wyoming with organizers mindful of COVID-19 and getting the first taste of a new location.

Now, it jumps to a part of the country where fatbiking, with its oversized, snow-eating tires, has moved to the center from the fringes as a winter activity and brought the masses with it. Witness the weekend calendars across Wisconsin — and Minnesota and Michigan — saturated with races and rides, and trail systems to support them.
