June 27-28th. Work and Race Free
June 27th-28th mark our first official volunteer work day for the 2013 Fatty Fest. We will be dialing in the Super D and Downhill Courses and starting our sweep of the XC course. Also some work on the new Observed Trials Sections will take place. Remember 6 hours of work gets you free entry into the event of your choice. Knock out 12 hours and we will double the offer. Lunch and beverages provided both days. Check the Non-competitive events links on the web site for all of the details. See you there.
Super D course Open and Navigable
The new Eureka Springs Fatty Fest Super D Course is now open. The line has bee brushed and partially swept. Maps are online under the competitive events links. The road bed has not been swept, so rubble and nasty ledges still litter the course. Proceed with caution. June 27th and 28th mark our first publicized work days. So come be a part of making this new trail pimped for the fest.
