Growing up climbing mountains with his family, Rick frequently was finding more creative ways to traverse the outdoors. He was excited to discover the challenge of adventure races years ago and has since completed events up to 48 hours, raced mountain bikes overseas, and fallen into frozen lakes while "training". His least favorite discipline is dragging kayaks for miles down shallow rivers.
Eric entered adventure racing several years ago after leaving a history of cross-country, track & field, and crew competition during college. In addition to adventure races ranging from 12-48 hours, he has completed several ultramarathons up to 100 miles as well as a few sufferfests like the Spartan Death Race. He learned at Untamed last summer that a comfortable bike seat is of utmost importance.
