Golf and bicycling, probably two of the last things you would guess coming together in the middle of winter in Michigan. This past weekend, the USA Cycling Fat Bike National Championships descended upon Grand Rapids, Michigan at Indian Trails Golf Course. Although the preceding week's weather was unseasonably warm, the ground finally froze in time for racing on Saturday. The pro race featured some of the top fat bike talent in the country, with competitive races throughout the weekend. By Sunday, the weather finally started to act like Michigan in January and a couple inches of snow come through, making for a more typical fat bike scene. Slime & Genuine Innovations were there to assist with seating pesky tire beads on the rim, topping off tires with sealant, and showing our new exciting product going into spring. To see for yourself, catch me at the CABDA Expo February 1-2, as well as the Santos Fat Tire Expo in Ocala, FL March 10-12!
