Fat Drafting

On the way to work today, I was headed down SR73 on my fat bike, and some lady passed me riding a bike she probably bought at Epic Biking.

After she passed I wondered to myself, "if I draft off of her will I be able to keep up with her skinny 23c tires with my fat 5 inch tires?" So I put a little sprint in and jumped into her slipstream. 

OK, we all know that drafting works, but I was actually surprised that I could coast along as she pedaled down the hill.
