Adventure Racing

Team Rolex was the first US team to participate in The Corsica Raid Adventure's nine year history.  The other 33 teams were from Corsica, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium and Germany.

This race was 8 days and 28 stages.  The events included mountain biking, sea kayaking, canyoneering, running, rappelling, rope circuits, and orienteering (not getting lost).

Chris Minick, and Russ Eddy.

Jimmy McEroy suffered an ankle injury and Russ Eddy the cook and photographer took his place.  Jimmy took over the cooking duties, and did a great job.
