Last Saturday the Lakeland Area Mountain Biking Organization (LAMBO) hosted its 3rd annual Fat Bike Biathlon at Shannon Lake Trail in St. Germain. The event includes a 10-mile course specifically groomed for smooth winter fat biking, along with a Cornhole Toss that reduced overall time by one minute per successful toss. This Biathlon is truly one of a kind and drew participants in from surrounding areas and as far as Tennessee. “I’d drive anywhere for a fat bike race,” said a participant who drove in from Green Bay that morning. Registrations doubled in size from last year and an impressive 30% were women. Ages ranged from under 19 to over 60.

“Excellent set up for the course and the best grooming, which was no easy task with our lack of snow in the Northwoods!” declared the overall male winner, Scott Golomski from Rhinelander. Local resident Terri Howard, a winner at last year’s Fat Bike Birkie and familiar face on the fat bike race circuit, was the overall female winner.

This event promotes winter fat biking in the Lakeland area and raises funds for LAMBO to build, maintain and groom bike trails in the local community. “The weather was fantastic, the course held up well and there was positive feedback from both racers and fans alike. And it will only get better in 2022!”, said event director Mike Olkowski.

Enclosed are the category results for the 2021 Fatathlon. The time shown is your ride time adjusted with a 1 minute time reduction for each bag you holed.
