April 20 & 21, 2013
The Fat Tire Revolution Series will once again kick off under the sunny skies of Ephrata, WA. Round 1 will be the Lions Short Track race on Saturday afternoon followed by Round 2 on Sunday: the infamous Beezley Burn cross country mountain bike race. This will be one wicked weekend of racing you don’t want to miss!
Update 4-14: The course has been groomed and is 100% rock free. Well, maybe not quite, but it’s in great shape and ready for action. We will have it all marked and ready for your pre-riding pleasure on Friday.

The Lions Short Track course will be a good mix of grass, gravel, and a little single track thrown in for good measure. It’s tons of fun, spectator friendly, and in a City park so bring the family. We’ll have a free kids race right before the pros and a bbq to follow.
The Beezley Burn course will be very similar to last year with one little new section to keep everyone on their toes. The course is 8 miles with 900′ of elevation gain per lap. It starts on a gravel canal rd, then makes it’s way up onto Beezley Hill with lots of rough, rocky terrain and short punchy climbs. Usually dry and sunny (knock on wood) with plenty of spring wildflowers abloom for some color.
