Just wondering why we don't get more Canadian riders up to Alaska for our 350/1100 mile winter race on the Iditarod Trail. Just got word and we are happy that Chloe Lanthier and her husband Jeff will be back with us this year but we would like to see more of our nearest neighbors at the starting line. For more race info check out www.alaskaultrasport.com

ps. Come up early for the race and we will take you out for a little Alaskan Slickrock riding!!

That is awesome! Quick Question: do the suspension forks still work in the cold?

Suspension in the cold

The suspension forks work fair as long as it is above 0 F but get very stiff or loose air after that. When we race most of us use stiff forks to save weight and you don't really need suspension in the snow.
