The ICEMAN™ event has been canceled for 2017 due to low registration numbers. Click this link If you registered and did not get the refund/ transfer email.
The ICEMAN™ Fat Tire Bike Race will follow a multi-lap format, utilizing the Granite City Speedway and the multifaceted landscape that surrounds it. Fat Bike riders get their choice between a 4 or an 8 lap race on a 3 mile closed course that will take them on a loop consisting of double track, single track, and weather permitting, lots of snow! Post race awards will be held on site at the race where you can enjoy your beverage of choice inside or outside around a warm bonfire.
We will offer race categories for Solo Men, Solo Women, as well as Duo teams. If you don’t own a Fat Bike, rent one or find a friend who does and enter the Duo Category! The two of you can share a bike. This is a Fat Bike Only event, so riders will only be allowed on the race course on bikes with 3.7″ wide (or wider) tires. This event will be chip timed by Pickle Events.
This year’s rider cap will be 200 riders. We will be offering an early bird registration fee of $25 through November. After 12/1 that the entry fee will increase to $30. Race day registration will be $35. Online registration will close on January 24. Don’t wait to get in on the action!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer refunds and/or transfers?
Unfortunately we are not able to issue refunds or offer entry transfers under any circumstances. If you can’t make it and you would like someone to pick up your race bag and t-shirt on race day, please do. Due to the extra expense, we are not able to ship bags or shirts. Finisher medals will only be given to Icemen and Icewomen who cross the finish line.
Be sure to bring an I.D.
You will need a photo I.D. to get your race bag and timing chip. You will also need an I.D. if you plan to have a beer or two before or after the race, so make sure you don’t leave it at home or in your car. You will be able to check it into the secure Key Drop tent during the race if you need to.
Will there be race day registration?
Yes! If you or someone you know didn’t preregister it’s not too late. YOU MAY NOT GET A RACE SHIRT! If you would like to stick around until after the last wave starts we may have extras available. If that is irritating to you, preregister next year! If you plan to register on race day bring your wallet, your legal guardian if you are under 18, and a change of clothes. Anyone under 18 will not be allowed to race without signed permission from their legal guardian. We will put you in the next available heat or with the group of friends that you came with.
Is there going to be food available?
Yes. There will be all sorts of outdoor cookout type food and will have your favorite cold beverage to enjoy as you soak up the experience.
When Should I arrive?
You should plan to arrive and check in at least 1 hour before your heat is scheduled to start. Please leave plenty of time to park and pick up your shirt and packet.
What do I do with my Stuff when I am racing?
We will have a complimentary key/bag drop tent available for you to check in your keys, small items, and backpacks. You will also be close enough to your vehicles to leave your stuff in your car.
Parking and Directions?
On site parking will be $10.00 per car. Please bring cash! Unlike some races, there will be plenty of parking right at the race site, so no need for shuttles. .
How will I warm up after the race?
Don’t worry, there is a large heated indoor area at the raceway where everyone will be before and after they race. We will have great warming and changing areas so you can warm up, change clothes if you wish, and feel a little more comfortable while you hang out, enjoy the party, and exchange war stories with your fellow Iceman.
What If I get hurt?
No worries. Hopefully you will make it through the course safely, but if you need help we will have medical staff there to take great care of you.
There is no fee if you want to come and watch other than for parking. Spectators will be able to get to most of the obstacles to watch so long as they don’t interfere with the participants.
