First Snow Epic Fat Bike Race in Switzerland
Just as the first Ritchey Commando fat bikes are shipping to bike shops across Europe, two Commandos will be participating in the first ever Snow Epic Stage Race, a five-day event around the mountains of Engelberg, Switzerland taking place between January 14th-17th.
Italian Giuseppe Ribolzi and Canadian Jean Francois Clermont from Assos Werksteam will take these bikes to the limit. With years of global experience in road and mountain bike stage races, like the famous Cape Epic in South Africa, this will be the first time the Swiss and Canadian members of Assos Werksteam will race on fat bikes in the snow.

We are longtime friends and this is exiting for both of us first time fat bike racing in the snow. We like to challenge ourselves and the product we ride with in this case it will be the Assos clothing and the Ritchey Commando fat bikes, Ribolzi said. The main challenge for both riders is having to prepare on separate continents and the current lack of snow in Europe.
Ritchey is excited to partner with the Assos Werksteam on this first time experience, where Ribolzi and Clermont will push Ritchey Commandos at race level.
