Four Durango racers make US Cycling Fat Bike National Championship podium. Ned Overend won the Pro Class and Travis Brown was third in the Pro’s. Martha Iverson won her age group and Richard Bagienski was fourth in his age category. The championships were held at Powder Mountain Ski Resort outside Ogden Utah, on February 14th.
The Pro’s did three laps on the six mile loop, while the age groupers did two laps. The course was packed snow and started with a fast downhill section at speeds of 25+ mph. The middle section had high speed flat turns, and some sharp turns with berms, interspersed with many undulations. The final section climbed 600 feet to the finish.
