Frosty Hog 2015 was Fun! Join us this year for a great time!
We were blessed by the bountifulness of snow, then by the graces of nice weather on Saturday, February 7th. The event took place behind the Kelly Senior Center in beautiful Warnimont Park, which gathered snowshoers and fatbikers for the day's action.
Two races took place, a relay race & solo race consisting of 94 riders total and approximately 30 more spectators to cheer on and ring the bells that created the momentum and comraderie to keep the riders rolling.
A huge thank you goes out to Bob Dumke for creating our one-of-a-kind scoreboard and keeping us in check and to our scorekeepers, Steve's dad, Russ & stepmother Lisa Whitford, Kevin & Ashley Karbowski, and Kate Valerius for yelling out team numbers. Chef Greg for making over 100 sausages and 15 lbs. of potatoes for fuel. Our route marshals, Dan Sawyer, Carla Losin, Brian, & Tim for directing riders and ensuring the safety throughout the course.
We appreciate all those who participated in the event! It was so great to see so many riders and so many fat bikes in attendance. We do this for the love of the ride and the beauty it holds with every outing. We look forward to giving you another wonderful event next year.
