Fat Tire Festival

Yesterday, Adam and I went to Copper Harbor for a change of scenery, and easy run, and to spectate at the annual Fat Tire Festival mountain bike races. As usual for Fat Tire, the weather was awesome, the crowds were huge, and the competition was fierce! A few of our friends (Chelsea, Jon, and Michigan Tech’s Oskar and Zac) finished well, and the rest had a great time.

Here are some videos from the day. Warning, the “Faceplant into Tree” might make you cringe, so take the title seriously, and don’t watch it if you don’t want to see carnage. There isn’t any blood, though…

  1. DAMN! That faceplant is no joke. Did he walk away alright?

  2. He actually got back on his bike and continued racing! Tough kid
