Untamed New England 3 day Adventure Race

Berlin Bike/Eastern Mountain Sports marks the marriage of two of New England’s powerhouse teams. Berlin Bike, winners of the USARA National Point Series Championships in 2007 and currently battling for the 2009 top spot, features team captain Ben Moore, Ernie Lawas and Fritz Palmeijer of Connecticut. Berlin Bike is consistently one of the “Teams to Watch” whenever they appear at the start line, always finishing in the top ranks.

Joining us for the first time is Jen Shultis, Captain of Team Eastern Mountain Sports, whose titles include 2005 USARA National Champions, 2006 & 2007 USARA National Masters Champions, and who won the 2005 Appalachian Extreme in the same territory that is host to the 2009 Untamed New England. This was the last ARWC qualifier held in the United States.
While it’s their first time racing together, all four have spent ample time together racing against each other on course and enjoying beer together off course. They are looking forward to finally racing together and not against each other!

You can follow us at Untamed New Englands web site:
The race will start at noon Thursday July 9th.

Thank you to Berlin Bike and Eastern Mountain Sports for all of your support!
