On May 3, 2019 28 Brutes, friends and family headed out for the 18 Hours of Fruita race. Despite some last minute roster changes, the Brute Squad filled out 6 four-person co-ed teams and 1 four-man team. All told, the 7 teams completed 178 laps, which comes to about 1300 miles of riding in 18 hours. For some, this was their first mountain bike race ever, for others it was the first time riding at night.
