    Team Golite/Balance Bar, USA

    From the USA web site:


    Ian Adamson (Captain)
    Danelle Ballengee
    Michael Tobin
    Michael Kloser

    Team GoLite's dramatic come-from-behind victory in New Zealand ignited a bitter rivalry with New Zealand's Team Seagate.com. This year, they're hoping for an unprecedented third-straight win, and master strategist Ian Adamson is looking forward to a true expedition-style race. But will this new brand of adventure racing and their latest foray into unknown territory stump even one of the greatest navigators in the world?

    I think this was the team that Harald Zundel (Alpha squad, Combat Missions) was on last year in the Balance Bar 24- hour competition.

    Damn! Too bad he's still not on that team!

    Ian is still displaying his amazing navigating skills, but the previews showed they will start making mistakes. Hope this doesn't cost them to start falling behind.

    Wolf, looks like every team is going to find this one hard to complete. The hint that even Ian has some mistakes down the road is a bit surprising, for as strong of a navigator that he and some of the others are.

    Whoever their navigator is is really screwing these guys over. Ian jumped in that one time, though.
