Fatbike Frozen Forty – all results for all finishers

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the 3 short days since the Fatbike Frozen Forty (Triple F), we’ve been extremely busy reviewing and responding to all the positive comments on Facebook, Twitter, the MORC forum, and email.  It sounds like the consensus is that this event should definitely occur next year.  Be sure to tell your friends to check out the photos and race recap while it’s still fresh, so they remember your enthusiasm from this year when registration starts next year.

In the meantime, we’ve had several racers request that we post the full race results.  Remember, this is a grass-roots effort that had tremendous turnout, and we don’t have dedicated staff or updating gremlins that get all the pictures sorted, recaps written, etc.  All the post-race wrap-up requires time.

With that in mind, here are the results for all racers who finished the 40-mile open class at Fatbike Frozen Forty 2012.  We had over 45 racers, including teams.  There were a total of 17 racers who finished all 40 miles in the 40-mile open solo class.  2 teams finished all 40 miles in the 40-mile team class.  The singletrack mountain bike trails at Elm Creek Park Reserve could not have been more perfect – snow-covered and nicely packed; it made for a fast and perfect fatbike race course.

In order, here are the 40-mile open solo class results from the February 25, 2012 Fatbike Frozen Forty at Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove, MN:

  1. Jeff Colbert =   3hr, 52min, 5 sec  (Winner of the Frozen 40 open class!)
  2. Dave Hoglund = 3hr, 54min, 23sec
  3. CJ Smith = 3hr, 56min, 54sec
  4. Jeff Young = 4hr, 38 sec
  5. Mat Moore = 4hr, 7min, 15sec
  6. Jacque Poquette = 4hr, 7min, 51sec
  7. John Reinan = 4hr, 11min, 57 sec
  8. John Hartland = 4hr, 21 min, 57 sec
  9. Gary Ingle = 4hr, 25min, 19 sec
  10. John Smith = 4hr, 29min, 9sec
  11. Mick Lovin = 4hr, 31min, 36sec
  12. Don Weber = 4hr, 31min, 56sec
  13. Greg Gleason = 4hr, 44min, 13sec
  14. Joe Stiller = 4hr, 49min, 15sec
  15. Steve Schneider = 5hr, 17min, 14sec
  16. Craig Brown = 5hr, 32min, 15sec
  17. Ted Clausen = 5hr, 32min, 16sec
The twist in our race format for the 2012 Fatbike Frozen Forty was our “King of the Triple F” event.  The racer who logged the most laps in 6 hours was awarded “King of the Triple F”.  The prize for the King of the Triple F was a pair of Husker Du tires, donated by Triple F sponsor 45Nrth.  The 2012 King of the Triple F is CJ Smith (3rd place finisher in the 40-mile open class).

Here are the 2012 Fatbike Frozen Forty Team results:

  1. Straight River Studs; 3-person team (Tony Schwichtenberg, David Chabot, Cutis Tesch) = 5hr, 9min, 5sec
  2. Easy Riders; 2-person team (Curtis Gacek, Stephen Eisenmenger) = 5hr, 10min, 10sec

There are some great photos and write-ups by some of the photographers and bloggers who attended the Triple F.  In one of our next posts, we will provide some of these links.  If you’d like everyone to see your Fatbike Frozen Forty photos or race recap, please leave a comment here or Contact Us so we can include yours.

Again, a huge thank you goes out to all participants, sponsors and volunteers.  Twenty2 Cycles, from Vail, Colorado was the primary/headline sponsor of the 2012 Fatbike Frozen Forty and was invaluable in supporting this event from the beginning.  Ben and Todd travelled from Colorado to display and demo their custom-designed and handmade-in-the-USA fatbikes, and helped with race planning, supporting racers on the day of the event, and being an advocate of this grass-roots race when it was only a concept.  Twenty2 Cycles, thank you!

    • Great recap Pete! It’s awesome to see what other racers/riders have to say about the Triple F. The goal of the event was to create a fun winter fatbike specific endurance-oriented race, with enough event options, spectator activity, sponsor involvement, prizes and swag, and post-race festivity that it’s fun for everyone. From the various reports we’ve received, it sounds like we got it right! Thanks for the great write-up.

  1. If you want to view or purchase a picture of yourself kicking ass on your phat fat bike from the FFF check them out at the link below. Once you download your pic you can do whatever you want with it….Facebook, blog, print it, share with your Grandma…and trust me, I’m hardly making a profit. I just took the pictures because I know hard to take a pic of yourself on your own bike.
