Paul Romero & Karen Lungren Finish Ecomotion Adventure Race

Big Bear, Ca, April 17, 2011, 12:00pm – Sore feet, aching bones, and a sense of accomplishment surround Big Bear Locals Paul Romero, Karen Lundgren and their Brazilian teammates Rafael Campos and Mateus Ferraz Gil when they finished 4th in the Ecomotion/Pro Adventure Race.  Through Mud, rain, scorching sun, and even more rain the team trekked, biked, climbed, and paddled their way for just over 4 days in the jungles of Brazil .  The adventure racing team stayed consistently in the top four during the four – five day competition, staying in first for the majority of day one and two.  Feet issues began on day two with Paul and Karen both getting bad blisters due to the constant trekking, and wet feet due to the rain.  The team pushed on, to then have Paul’s bike brake in the middle of one of the bike portions pushing the team back.  The race ended with a 56-kilometer bike ride, into a 54-kilometer paddle and finishing with a 1.1 k trek.  In a video shown on their blog teamsole.com the team finished at night with Mateus and Rafael carrying Karen.  For the last few feet she and the rest of the team walked their way into the finish, tired and happy to be done with the endurance race.  The race started with 36 professional 4-person adventure racing teams competing.  During the...

Team Sole Represents USA In Patagonia Adventure Race And Wins!

Big Bear, Ca, March 24, 2011, 12:00pm – On a special invitation from The North Face and the new national park of Tantuaco on the southern tip of Chile’s Island of Patagonia, Team Sole comprised of Big Bear local Paul Romero and Slater Fletcher, competed in a four day adventure race representing the United States.  The four day race pushed teams to the limit, having them cross 250 miles of terrain by way of bicycle, kayak, and by foot trekking through thick bush that on average took teams one hour to get through one kilometer of terrain.  On the first day of the race, team navigator Romero made a navigation error that put the team into 8th place at the end of the first stage by over 5 hours, what at the time seemed to be “a nearly insurmountable deficit in this format of racing.”  After four days of navigation, running, bushwhacking, kayaking and mountain biking, Team Sole was able to push all the way to 1st place overall, winning with a 2 hour lead over the entire field.  For more on Team Sole’s adventures visit TeamSole.com....
