THE COURSES

The PreFat provides the perfect warm-up for the Chequamegon Fat Tire races. The race course starts and ends in the new Kortelopet Start Area at the Hwy 00 Birkie trailhead and goes north using both forest roads for fast speeds, and CAMBA single track to test your riding skills. This year’s courses are very similar to the 2019 course. All three courses will use the Birkie bridge crossing over highway OO near the end of each race.

Much of these courses are used for the Chequamegon Fat Tire races. All courses include sections of CAMBA single track. The 25 mile Expert Course is approximately 50% single track. The 17 mile Sport and Fat Bike Course is 40-50%, and the 10 mile Citizen Course is about 30-40% single track. More detailed information on each of the courses is provided below.

Citizen Race Line Up

TheCitizen” Course uses gravel roads, forest roads and three sections of single track. The single track includes a portion of the Seeley Pass trail between Fire Tower Fire Lane and Boedecker Road, followed by a short section of Boedecker and Janet roads, and then returns to the Seeley Pass trail, crossing Janet road onto a short, somewhat more difficult section of the trail near the end of the race between Janet Road and the “OO” trailhead parking lot. The course then crosses “OO” on the Birkie bridge before the final 1.5 miles using a ski trail, a short section of Makwa single track with a final flat and fast section on a ski trail to the finish.

Fat Bikers

The “Sport” and “Fat Bike” Courses use gravel and forest roads and three sections of single track. The first section of single track starts at the Camp 38 Road CAMBA trailhead and uses portions of the Flow Mama trail, including the “38 Special’ and “Gravity Cavity” features. This section continues on the “Flow Mama” trail to Boedecker Road. The course follows a short section of Boedecker and Janet roads, and then returns to the Seeley Pass trail, crossing Janet road onto a short, somewhat more difficult section of the trail near the end of the race between Janet Road and the “OO” trailhead parking lot.

The “Expert” Course follows gravel and forest roads to the Camp 38 Road CAMBA trailhead and uses portions of the Flow Mama trail, including the “38 Special’ and “Gravity Cavity” features.
