Big congratulations to Train Out Pain athlete and new Fat Tire World Champion, Danielle Musto. This past weekend, she travelled up to Marquette, MI to take on the 25k course. If you haven't seen these bikes around, you will. These monster 4" tires are part of the new craze that is sweeping the Midwest. I did get a chance to ride one this summer and was surprised at how well it actually handled.
Danielle has been training hard since winning the 24 hour single speed National Championship this past fall. The goals we outlined for her in building her training program was building up more upper body strength (as evidenced by being able to do unassisted chin ups now) and also increasing power output in the hips.
You can read Danielle's race report on her blog. World Champion has a pretty cool ring to it.
