For the past 4 winters, fat bike riders have traveled to Island Park, Idaho to challenge themselves in the most difficult winter fat bike ultra in the lower 48; JayP’s Fat Pursuit.
We’re pleased to introduce, “The Pursuit: Lessons in Winter Fat Bike Wisdom and Personal Growth.” Jay Petervary’s Backyard Fat Pursuit is a 200km or 200-mile winter bike ultra in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. There’s more climbing than most winter ultras, enough snow to swallow you whole if you veer off the edges of the trails, and temps that can (and have) reached -40 on race weekend. But riders who venture to Island Park, Idaho for the event will tell you the setting presents a classroom like no other.
“Ultra’ means something different to everyone and I understand my perspective is very skewed. An ultra in my book is also when you take the body to its physical limit but then rely on your mental game to finish. There comes the point where ultras are only physical for so long, and I truly believe that whatever you tell your mind, the body will follow.” – Jay Petervary
We hope you enjoy the “The Pursuit,” and feel inspired to seek out learning opportunities that aren’t always easy. The results can positively impact you for the rest of your life.
