Unseasonably warm temperatures welcomed fat-bike racers Sunday to Woodbury's Carver Lake Park.

More than 100 racers took to the snowy hills and frozen lake that comprised the race course for the Cold Catfish Cup Bike Race. Racers rode oversized -- or "fat" -- bikes, complete with oversized tires that make trail riding easier in the snow.

Full results from the race can be accessed here.

The top three male finishers in the three-lap race were Dominic Tolerrico, Brendan Bellow and Heath Weisbrod. The top two women finishers were April Morgan and Sveta Kovalchuk.
