25 Years of the Fat Tire!


Old school TEAM NITC
Originally uploaded by North Iowa SPIN
A twenty five year anniversary only comes around once and quicker than a 1983 blink here comes the Chequamegon's silver celebration. The race headquarters is a frantic display of multi-tasking as all areas of event planning are coming together for the September 14-16 weekends.

Greg LeMond is coming to the twenty-fifth. Gary Fisher is coming to the twenty-fifth. Travis Brown is coming to the twenty-fifth. You are coming to the twenty-fifth. It can't get any better than that. Now if Floyd and Lance would come we could really see some mud slinging!

Myslef and Steve Younker have been attending the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival for 12 years and we've been able to introduce Cheqwammy Fat to a long list of other bike enthusiast. Lately it's become more about the pre and post activities then the race itself. But the Cheqwammy 40 keeps us coming back for more.

North Iowa Racers this year include:
Fat Tire 40
Tim Putnam
Steve Younker
Eric Rust
Dwight Beaver
Robert Polking
Barry Trump
Short and Fat 16
Steve Schurtz

Here's to another 12 years of racing Cheqwammy

I hear he is ready to make a TdF comeback! I'll give it my all! Sounds like we will have a wet and muddy course.

Sad to see the former great road racer, Eric Rust, now riding a mountain bike. Tim looks lean, Dave posing like a GQ model and Barry as handsome as ever.
