Sports Rack is a full service bike and Nordic ski shop specializing in Fatbikes, endurance racing, and bikepacking. We carry a full line of gravel, mountain, allroad, and Fatbikes. We also love outfitting riders for those long days in the saddle. It takes a great selection of bags and specific gear to help you get out there and back, and thatʼs what we offer.

At Sports Rack, we sell what we ride and use; we have the experience in many types of riding and racing to share with anyone. Stop by and see us if you need anything preparing for Polar Roll.

Sports Rack is located on Washington St. in Marquette just a couple blocks from the Polar Start Line.

*Polar Roll racers take 10% off nutrition and soft goods in the week leading up to the race*

When you sign up for the Polar Roll mailing list

It’s all about community.

We asked you to #adapt in 2020, and you did. Now we’re asking you to join us and #forge ahead. 2021 is about doing what you do best, making the most of what you have, and getting better every day.

While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:

Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $141,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT. We also support youth adventure programs in three communities and have plans for that number to grow in the near future.

In 2021 we’re building a learning management system to train 150+ volunteer Adventure Leaders, and have our eyes on the future: planning to grow from 500 youth served to thousands. Together with your continued support and a network of dedicated partners, we will connect kids with each other, their communities, and give them a healthy alternative to time spent on devices.
