Team BOR (Balls Out Racing) is an Adventure Racing
team focused on crazy fun and finishing strong...well just finishing. The team is
composed of like minded crazy individuals that mesh well together. Each of us
have strengths that help the team and each has their weaknesses that make us
Paul Frisbee (The Manimal) of Rolla Missouri is the Godfather and originator of the team. He is
mostly animal hence the name The Manimal. His
job is to push the team harder and farther. His strengths are leaping over tall
mountains in a single bound. His weakness is the rest of the team can't. His
steed is Candy.
Dave Cortivo (Beast Mode) of St. Louis Missouri is the recruiter of the team
and official story teller hence the ability to sell this craziness to others.
His job is back up navigator. His strengths are pedaling like a mad man after
everyone else has died out. His weakness is knowing what a pace is. He hasn't
named his bike yet but its always protected so it should be named
Scott Shaw (Captain Ahab) of Crestwood Missouri is the organizer of the team or the
one who is telling everyone what to do even though no one listens. His job is
time strategy and bike maintenance. His strength is moving through pain, which
is good because his weakness is he gets injured the most. His injuries are 10%
road, 50% running, 40% crashing Samantha.
Kevin Minton (Grannyless) of Kirkwood Missouri is
the southern gentleman of the team who always calls out "on your left darlin"
even though most people take that as a competitive attack. His job is Check
Point Charlie and nutrition. His strengths are pedaling up hills like a mad
man, but his weakness is his stubbornness not to have a granny ring on Esmeralda
and knowing which way is north.
Neil Dickhaus (Human Compass)of Eureka Missouri has the
natural ability to bushwack quickly and normally accurately. His job is primary
navigator unless shiny new metallic magnetic objects are near by. His strength
is signing up for races quickly and his weakness is wishing he hadn't. He has
the oldest running horse around named Gretchen, but he just bought a new 29er.
John Naas (Redline) of Sparta Illinois can spin his legs faster than anyone in granny gear hence redline. We have named his new bike Phantom. He is against it, but we don't care. John is training hard for triathlons and one day the Ironman.
