The richest Fat Tire criterium in U.S. over $7500 in prize money


The Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival is proud to announce the Ride Sun Valley Fat Tire Criterium Thursday, July 14 from 6-9 p.m., as part of its week of cycling events. With over $7500 in cash up for grabs, it is being touted as the richest fat tire criterium in the country. Music, beer, food, and some of the best mountain bike pros in the country will all be on tap competing on the short, tight course in downtown Ketchum. Starting in front of the Ketchum Town Square Plaza on Sun Valley Road, riders will rip around a two-block course jumping curbs, rallying through tight corners and sprinting for cash primes through the night.

Be sure to catch a number of your local celebrities as they compete in the 4 person relay. One mountain bike, four people and some interesting hand offs, make for some great entertainment. Sun Valley Brewing will be hosting the beer garden and a number of restaurants will have curbside concessions. As a bonus, the Thursday night concert series will be playing before and after the event to keep the crowd energized. Be sure to  put it on your schedule! Don’t miss any of the action.
