Will Ross crosses the finish line, in victory, at the US Fat-Bike National Championship at the Fat Bike Birkie!

Sven and I sat down with, US Fat-Bike National Champion, Will Ross, earlier this month to talk about his championship ride at the Birkie. During Will’s visit to our spartan industrial suite, Sven shot some studio photos for all of you out there in fat-bike land to drool over! One of the many really cool aspects of fat-bikes is that you can go out and purchase an exact duplicate of Will’s championship race rail. If we could only bottle the human strength, skill and energy that defines Will’s motor, then we could all ride (fly) like champions! You can listen to the fat-bike-radio interview with Will here – Will Ross Interview.
