Finn von Schmeling

Finn von Schmeling

Finn von Schmeling

Age: 21

Location: Hamburg, Germany (but in New Zealand until the race)

Ability/fitness level: 3-4, having finished the Cape to Cape in the top 20% and the Whaka100 a week later. Not the fastest on technical single track, but I make up for it when it‘s flat or uphill and not too technical. Also currently in training for a full distance Ironman, so looking to be feeling good when race week comes. 

Goals for the event: Having fun, enjoying the experience and getting through it safely, but also pushing hard and trying to finish as good as possible. Also open for mixed team.

Joe Tegerdine

Joe Tegerdine

Age: 44

Location: Texas, USA

Ability/fitness level: I completed my first stage race last summer in Colombia (La Leyenda Del Dorado). It was brutal, but my teammate and I survived after we both got food poisoning and actually finished pretty good. First time puking from a bike and running off trail for mid race relief! My teammate was from Brazil so we didn't meet until the race, but we used Strava to train and encourage each other. I've done a bit of X-Country racing, won X-TERRA region for my age group in 2017. I'm about a 3-4 experience level, definitely not a pro, but I win most CAT2 races I've entered.

Goals for the event: I really want to have a good time, enjoy the beautiful country and see how fast I can finish. I am competitive, but not crazy... too old for crazy!
