Congratulations to our firefighting CFM members on the TUFF Challenge!

On September 29th several of our CrossFit Mayhem members competed in the Tennessee Ultimate Fire Fighter (TUFF) Challenge. Brandon Lee, Kurt Craig, and Travis Fansler competed in the team event along with their fellow firefighter Jon Dukes in a five-person team event. As you can see by the number of people, they competed with only four on their team and placed 3rd in the competition. One of their members, Travis Fansler, also competed in the individual competition and placed 4th prior to the team competition. Nice job guys!

All the proceeds of the TUFF Challenge benefit the Tennessee Fallen FireFighter Memorial.



Dalton Cross – First place in Can-Am GNCC Racing Series in OH

Going into Round 11 of the 2012 Can-Am GNCC Racing series this past weekend in St Clairsville, OH,
Dalton Cross had his work cut out for him. With the current points lead in his possession and working his
way towards the 2012 National Championship in the 4 Stroke B Lites class, Dalton knew that he would
have to bring his “A” game to the starting line as he would be lining up against some of the fastest
amateur off road racers in the country. With rain in the forecast for the weekend, the track conditions
were better than expected but the wet weather still produced several nasty mud holes along with other
obstacles that would take their toll on both men and machines as the day went on.

Jumping out to an early lead in the 3 hour long race, Dalton set the pace as he sprinted out ahead of
the rest of his class while working his way through a maze of other racers from classes that had started
previous to him. Keeping pace with fast, consistent lap times while covering the technical 10 mile course
for a total of 6 laps, Dalton was able to bring home the win with a 2 minute lead over the rest of the pack
and move himself one step closer to the National Championship. Dalton’s fitness played a key role in his
race, allowing him to stay strong and mentally focused from start to finish.

Dalton credits a large part of his success and accomplishments in off road racing this season to
the level of fitness that Rich has helped him to achieve. For Dalton, Rich has been both, trainer and
mentor…leading by example and bringing to reality what hard work and dedication can produce.

Congratulations Dalton!
