We had our share of challenges at this race. First getting the truck ready in 4 months or less, next getting the truck to Germany in time for the race, then preparing the final fixes at camp before the start, logistical and team communication and interpersonal challenges, misc. mechanical challenges, navigation challenges, language challenges..we had no shortage. But what could have been the final blow for this team was on day 4 when the $23,000 axle was bent during a long 15 hour day. After much deliberation and logistical problem solving we had a refurbished axle freighted in from Germany. We spent the entire day handling the logistics of finding the axle and arranging for delivery, the entire night was removing the old axle, discovering other problems to be fixed and waiting for the new axle to be delivered. We had come this far, we were determined to finish. Super props to team mechanics Josh Valentine and Alois Schleibinger who not only completed the task at hand, but did it with determination to get Bam Bam fixed up on on the road to a strong finish.
