Do you ever find yourself up late at night texting, or sitting at the bar with friends, beer in hand, coming up with hair brained ideas that you never actually follow through with? See, that’s kind of the problem with the guys on Team Granite. If you tell your idea to the right person it’s like planting a seed that grows and will one day eventually produce. For the most part, those ideas have turned into experiences I’ll never forget. DH fatbiking with a broken hand, biking the White Mountains (including Mt. Washington), and helping Tucker finish out his last 5 or 6 laps of his Everesting at Highland are just a few examples from the past year.

So there we were with another idea; to be the first to hit many of Highland’s bigger features on fatbikes. But not just with fatbikes, as that would not be a first. I mean, I’ve personally seen people hit the Pinkbike drop in the fall with full on cruiser bikes at Send’r bash, for crying out loud. No, this was being the first to hit them on fatbikes, in the winter, in the snow. At least I think it’s a first; I could be wrong. Either way, the seed was planted, and we proudly followed through.

Highland is gracious in supporting Team Granite and gave us special permission to make it happen. After all, we were filming the above video to get people stoked for the upcoming lift-served fatbike event; Winter Woolly this weekend (15th). But, it’s never that simple with us. We are always pushing each other, and I kinda like it that way.
