OGDEN, Utah (February 27, 2016) — USA Cycling’s Fat Bike Nationals were held at Powder Mountain on a tough but non-technical course. Utah riders fared well with perennial powerhouse Alex Grant (Salt Lake City, Cannondale 360 Fly p/b Sugoi) taking the Pro Men’s win and Emma Maaranen (Bend, Oregon, Rolf Prima) taking the Pro Women’s. Maaranen is a former Utah resident.

Alex Grant and Rob Squire left the field behind at the Fat Bike National Championships at Powder Mountain on February 27, 2016. Grant went on to take the win.

Grant and Utah road pro rider Robbie Squire dropped the field early on and built a large gap. The two stayed together until the finish when Grant led out the sprint. Squire came around him and looked ready to take the win, but his front wheel slid out with 20 feet to go. Grant crossed the line for his first national championship.

Emma Maaranen won the women's Pro category at the Fat Bike National Championships at Powder Mountain on February 27, 2016.

Maaranen went out fast and early and soloed the women’s race to take her first national championship.
