45NRTH Announces Title Sponsorship of the Great Lakes Fat Bike Series

For the second year in a row, 45NRTH has signed on to be the title sponsor of the Great Lakes Fat Bike Series.

With fat biking on the rise and showing no signs of slowing across the country, 45NRTH has been doing their part to help grow the sport.

“45North exists to help more people have fun riding bicycles in the winter,” says 45NRTH brand manager, David Gabrys. “Our partnership with the Great Lakes Fat Bike Series helps us achieve this, while also showcasing some of the best groomed single track in the country, as the sport of winter fat biking is experiencing explosive growth. This kind of XC-style riding and racing on groomed courses will play a critical role in the future of the sport.”

The 45NRTH Great Lakes Fat Bike Series is now in its third year and is comprised of eight events spread throughout the winter. From the months of December to March, racers from all over the Midwest will earn series points in the eight events taking place in three different states. The 2015 series begins on December 20 with the Solstice Chase in St. Croix Falls, WI.
