Name:
Hometown:
Bike set up:
Arrival date (Sat/Sun)
Camping: Y or N

Rules:
1. The FAT game is rapidly changing with innovations abound, so with that in mind, you will be allowed to participate if you have at least one 3.0" tire on your bike. Real FAT bike? Yes! Krampus? IN! "Reverse Mullet" style Fat Front only? Why not?

2.This event is unsanctioned and underground and will occur on open trails and ways that may contain vehicle traffic, off road vehicles, other cyclists, hikers, runners, dog walkers, hobos...etc.

3. OR2P will provide beer and food/snacks at base camp as well as some trail beers, but you are on your own at all Food/Beer stops on the course. Bring some food to share for Saturday evening/Sun afternoon if you would like (electricity/some heating implements will be provided for food)

4. The golden rule: Don't be a douche. This is all about having fun with like minded individuals.

*If space permits, a limited amount of conventional MTB's may be allowed at organizers discretion, so if you have a less wheel endowed or FATcurious friend that desperately wants to be a part of the action, please note that on your registration email for consideration. Any Non-Fats will be allowed to ride at the back of the pack and have as much fun as is possible on a "normal" bike but will only be recognized as Fattwahnabees unable to score points.


Format: 2 days of enduro style racing/riding on the finest FAT friendly singletrack, double track, gravel, moto cross, quad trails, deer trails, railroad beds, rail trails, ghost roads, hobo camps, and urban backcountry that the city of Pittsburgh has to offer. Race for points and prizes or just enjoy the ride. Everyone will re-group between stages with neutral riding in between, so there is something for everyone. Bar stops and hidden beer caches will be found along the way to keep you rolling all day.
