Good Luck at Iceman!
October 30, 2017, 12:00 am

We are getting pretty darn excited for the biggest races of the year! This Saturday, thousands of mountain bikers from all over the country and even the world will be in TC for the Iceman Cometh Challenge! 

It's the biggest one day race in North America, and it couldn't be a bigger deal for local cyclists and enthusiasts. For many racers, the season's exclamation point comes on the first Saturday of November every year, the traditional day of the big race. Over 5,000 racers make the pilgrimage from Kalkaska to Timber Ridge, located on the very eastern side of Traverse City. 

Get your bike in for a tweak or a tune, grab all the cold weather gear you'll need, and don't forget a snack or to for the big day. We'll be at the shop all week, as well as at the Ice Cycle Expo this Friday from noon until 10pm, so make sure you swing by the tent and say hello! 

The weather for race day is looking pretty solid; a high of 46 degrees will make your post-race reminiscences much more enjoyable, and there's no rain in the forecast! While plenty of people like a cold and soggy Iceman, it's certainly more fun to be warm and dry on the biggest day of the year. 

With dry weather, we're sticking with our Schwalbe Thunder Burts or Continental Race Kings for the race. If it does rain, or the course somehow stays very wet late into the week, Continental Mountain Kings and Schwable Rocket Rons are usually good for a little additional bite in the mud. 

It's been a great fall for training, and even a little rain this week won't change how we're feeling heading into Iceman. We hope you're feeling prepared and excited for what is truly the largest party of the year, with a bike race thrown in for fun. 

Good luck, have fun, and we'll see you at Timber Ridge!
