oskar-blues-logoBack to where it all began, the team amassed the largest showing at this annual Terra Firma event to date.  Two 3-4 person co-ed teams, one 2-man 12 hour team, one 4 man team, one 6 hour solo, and two 12 hour SS solo made for the largest team at the event. Period.

The forecast the entire week was well, rain.  Fortunately, the rain held off until the afternoon, and the pit tent was active with the best support a team can have!  Hot soup, snacks, and food and water throughout the day made our racers feel invincible.

Solo Superman!

The two man team of Jonathan Braddick and Marcus Gillespie already won their category the second the race started, because know one else signed up for that category.  That didn’t change anything, as they end up with 11 laps due to weather.

The two co-ed teams battled for the top spot all day together, along with another team.  One was a three person team, Brad Wendling, Melissa Dalton, and Mike D’Aurelio end up in third behind Judge Rucker, Kate Castro, Micheal Shannon, and Corey Fawcett who ended up in second place.

The solo troopers were the big highlight of this 12 hour endurance race!  Jesse Bernal (12 hr SS, Nick Castro (12 hr SS) and Brad McDaniel (6 hr) all did an amazing job.  Nick completed 5 laps on a broken bicycle and is first solo 12 hour, Brad also completed his first solo endurance race, and Jesse was the superman on the team for the weekend.  He completed 10 solo single speed laps, and finished in 2nd place overall!
