    YES! And Fatties could be in BOTH summer and winter olympics. Sand and Snow and all permutations of length and courses and obstacles, adventure races,downhill, uphill, tracks, Ice, whatever. Face it the possibilities are endless.

    I would go so far as to say that the only bikes that should be allowed in any olympic event are Fat Bikes. There I said it.

    Long studs on the tire, use the down hill or slope style course, of course.

    Bike stuff is all in the summer olympics .. you will have to go with wads of money to the Olympic committee

    and then you may stand a chance of them hearing your suggestion..


    London Olympics added a BMX race series.
