We are a group of people who love adventures and to reach new goals in our lives. We spent a lot of time in the past practicing a lot o different sports and finally all together landed in this sport discipline where we are focused right now.
Because our captain felt in love with RIF in 2012 when he took part in the race with a Colombian team. After that, every year we tried to participate to RIF, without success. In 2016, RIF will be very close to our home and racing across some mountains we love. These are the ideal conditions to take part in RIF again.
Our ambition is to complete the race in the full race ranking. We know this is a very ambitious goal, but we will push hard to be there. Whatever is going to happen during the race, our main goal will be to enjoy every step in our progression and enjoy every moment all together.
We are a team that normally races in the Spanish and Catalan National Cups, where we won the general ranking twice in the last two years. Every year, the team planned to be in an AR World Series event, so we have several participations in the last 5 years in international AR races. Also RIF 2012, the World Championship across the Alps was enjoyed by one of our members.
We think that during these long races, the best anecdotes are during the nights, when everything is dark and team members are sleepy. In some races in the past, we saw different wild animals walking with us in the mountains, we planned the shopping list to go to the supermarket as soon as we could or we had to stop in a food truck strategically located in the race travel. We remembered all these special moments with a big smile in our faces.
