Tour of Fairbanks

The Tour of Fairbanks is traditionally a 5-Stage Road Race held in June. But as we know 2020 is a bizarro year and so Race Director Christopher Knott decided to make things interesting by making TOF a summer long virtual series with a mountain and gravel bike component this year.

Race Objectives

  • To keep Alaskan athletes motivated to train and race
  • Help local small businesses recover from the affects of COVID-19

Race Dates

  • Road Racing: June 4 -7
  • MTB Racing: July 16-19
  • Gravel Racing: August 27-30

Each race will be over 4 days and will have five routes. All times will be recorded on Strava, so you will need a Strava account and a GPS watch, cycling computer, or the ability to use your phone with the Strava app. Each race series is $40 plus FCC membership (to cover insurance costs). We offer annual individual and family memberships or day memberships. If you select the day membership, you must purchase one for each day you are competing.

All riders MUST ride by themselves. If there are other people on the course, YOU ARE NOT TO RIDE TOGETHER NOR BE WITHIN 20 FEET OF EACH OTHER and there is ABSOLUTELY NO DRAFTING. 

Information about routes, links to the infamous Race Bible, and prizes will be added to the page soon. Questions about the race can be sent to Christopher Knott.
