Team Mind Over Body (M.O.B.) is made up of four friends who live and play together in the Canadian Rockies. The teammates have diverse outdoor and competitive experiences: Captain Francois Charest is a marathon / ultra-marathon runner and adventure racer, who has also competed in numerous ironmans. Sandra Baribeau has competed in triathlons and ironmans. Triathlons fed her love of testing limits, and ever since that first race she’s pushed herself further and further into the wilderness. Michal Dorocicz cites “pushing limits” as his motivation for adventure racing, too. He spends his weekends scaling frozen waterfalls and climbing headwalls. Finally, David Lebrun, the team’s fourth member, saw his whole life changed in January, 2011. After an avalanche interrupted a backcountry ski trip, he found himself alone and half-buried, his legs trapped against a tree. Miraculously he was rescued, and since then he has resumed his adventuring with a new respect for mother nature.

Despite the diversity of their personal histories, reading about the team members of M.O.B. one comes away impressed by the similarity of their perspectives. Each teammate thrives on challenge. Charest explained that the Patagonian Expedition Race “appeals to our need for adventure, wilderness, and adrenaline.” The 2016 race should bring challenge and adrenaline aplenty.
