So what the heck is Fatty Cross?

The Fatty Cross Race Series is a three-event winter adventure race series held at the Haddam Neck Fairgrounds. The timed races will be held on a cyclocross-style course, with A, B, and junior race categories, followed by a fat-bikes only race at the end of the day. Weather happens, and these races will be rain or shine or snow, so choose your bike and clothing carefully!

Our intent is to host a FUN event to bridge the downtime between CX and MTB seasons, get people off their trainers, and hopefully have people show up at the 10AM start of the day and stay through the end, yet still be back in the cars headed home by 2PM. We’ll have warming tents, hot beverages available, a big honking bonfire, and a fun course where hand-ups and malarkey are welcomed. We are drawing heavily upon all the favorite races in New England, and aiming to have that sort of bike party… thanks to the fine folks behind Ice Weasels, Secret Squirrel, and other great local races for the ideas and inspiration!
