    Team Sherpa is united by their shared aptitude for mountain biking, but Jean Paul Desrosiers, the team captain, thinks the strength they’ll rely on most is the “ability to maintain high morale when forward progress is most difficult.” “When choosing our team for PER,” Desrosiers wrote, “I knew every one of us could answer YES to this question: ‘Can you remain happy while suffering for 10 days?’”

    Desrosiers and his teammates have ample experience staying positive in the face of physical suffering. Andrew Pemberton has completed 3 ironmen and 6 half ironmen, as well as competing for four years as a college football player. Adam Pemberton has participated in a 4-man bicycle relay race across the United States, as well as completing the storied Leadville 100 mountain bike race. Elizabeth Moore has been adventure racing since 1999, tackling events like Lake Tahoe’s 450+ mile Primal Quest. Desrosiers, at the helm, brings his experience in the Marines and as a semi-pro cyclist.

    Team Sherpa looks promising, and has the confidence to back it up. “We’re planning on a strong finish,” said Desrosiers.
