Jill was named the Women's Big Fat winner in the 45NRTH Fat Bike Birkie -- the world’s largest fat bike race held on the American Birkebeiner Trailhead just east of Cable, Wisconsin. Participating in the Big Fat (47K), Jill raced to the finish line in 2:03:06, a two-minute lead over the second place finisher.
Approximately 800 riders from 16 states and two countries tested their fat bike skills on the legendary hills of the Birkie Trail. The field was comprised of first time Fat Bike Birkie riders, as well as seasoned racers making their sixth appearance at the event.
The 2018 45NRTH Fat Bike Birkie included the Big Fat (47K) and the Chico (21K) races.
Also participating in the race were several members of our Synergy team and Now Bikes' friends: Brian Cheslog, Dani Cheslog, Pat Lynch, Bay Shock, Lori Shock, Brian Rogers, Kalen Graham, Davey Plourde, Chris Kane, Frank Rowe, Paula Volk, and Cory Hedin. Congrats to all racers!
