Fat (video) Tuesday ♦ Fat Tom K’s Birkie Vid

Fat Tom K, from Manitoba, captured this year’s Fat Bike Birkie in four minutes! Tom also shared some thoughts about this year’s race.

Could this year’s race be BIGGER and BETTER?! Well, the 2016 version was all that and more than the great race I have enjoyed the last two years! It wasn’t just that it has grown to over 1000 racers … the whole weekend experience was enhanced by the new Start/Finish location and venue right in the heart of Cable, Wisconsin, USA. The locale created a fun ‘carnival’ atmosphere, allowed for more sponsors space (wow – do they have a ton of sponsors – Fat Biking continues to explode!), access to local businesses and a seriously long straight racers line-up and roll out onto 44+ Kms of sweet groomed track! Thank you to the awesome organizers and volunteers of the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation, who made the whole weekend experience terrific and worthy of a long drive from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada … every year! smile emoticon

Thanks for sharing your video and your thoughts amigo!

    Hola Gomez, thanks for the share amigo! Once again, the Birkie delivered tons of fun and sweet trail conditions (over 58 kph/36 mph carving corners – yikes)! 🙂
