Topeak-Ergon Racing Team Take Dude CF to the Top
The Dude CF has been on a serious winning streak this winter! The recently-married pair, Jeff Kerkove and Karen Jarchow of the Topeak Ergon Racing Team, have left their mark in the snow with two big wins mounted atop the Canyon fat bike. Over the weekend of January 28th, Karen took the win at the Fat Bike World Championships in Crested Butte, Colorado, riding 5 laps of the 6-mile track in a blistering 2:04:02, to win by a margin of over 10 minutes.
Just a few weeks earlier, outside of Yellowstone National Park, Jeff rode the Dude to victory in the Fat Pursuit 200k race. Riding for a grueling 19 hours through wind, snow and temperatures between -34 and -6 degrees C, Jeff put himself and the bike through the wringer to take the top spot on the podium.
You know what they say. The family that does extreme fat bike racing together, stays together.
