Think Roman Gladiator chariots, meets chuckwagon racing meets dog sled racing! As part of the Flying Canoe Festival, MADE is hosting a call for entries for the first ever "Winterus Maximus" event: 2 Fat-bikes pulling a custom-designed Chariot and pilot in races against other chariots!. The race will be held on a course on the Flying Canoe Festival grounds in the Mill Creek area on February 6th, 2016. Teams will be responsible for designing the Chariots and the harnesses connecting to the fat-bikes.
Successful entrants can either enter a team of 3 together: (one sled pilot and two riders, each on a fat-bike) or, a Chariot team will be paired with a 2-person Fat-bike team to race for glory and prizes.
The Entry Fee is $30/team payable on Eventbrite. There will be an opportunity for teams to test out their sleds and teams at the Byzantine Winter Festival on January 9th & 10th.
This brand new winter event is made possible with support from the City of Edmonton's WinterCity Office.
