Team FARA Blog

Team FARA members are running, walking, biking and swimming for FA research around the world.

While they are geographically dispersed, Team FARA is united with the same goal: to draw attention to FA through acts of physical endurance and to support the advancement of FA research towards treatments and a cure for FA.

In Memory of Nick Olson

Team FARA is riding today in memory of Nick Olson, a courageous young man, whose battle with FA ended June 10th.

Kyle Bryant "The Team has learned that Nick passed away and we would like to dedicate today's ride to Nick. We are all thinking of him, his sister, Aubrey, and his family as we work our way through the desert and begin our big climb later today to Flagstaff. This is what this ride is about... feeling the pain and loss and working to bring attention to this disease so that others know about it and can help us all work towards treatment and a cure."

In the mountains

The team just reached Prescott Arizona. Sean and mike are on a gnarly
climb right now and are pulling strong in memory of nick.

We will switch teams in about 25 miles and RV support will not be
allowed for 95 miles.

The team is getting a little warn down and having a little trouble
figuring out how to choose the right food that will agree with our
bodies and keep us fueled but we know what needs to be done...

    Maybe it just me, but I like the 'ICE' better, but looks like your 'ready' to take off!

    You look great, Kyle. Keep at it. We are so proud of the four of you, bringing FA to the mountains, the desert, the plains...

Night 2 begins



A Note From The Crew. . .

First, we are so proud of our Team FARA cyclists for such a strong start. Mary & I last saw Sean and Mike at an exchange near Time station #2 in Brawley, CA. They should be tucked into bed for some well deserved rest by now, and Kyle and John pedaling away on 78 on their way to Blythe, CA.

They are accompanied by Crew Chief- Mike Bryant (Kyle's Dad), Phil Vickers (Sean's Brother), Blake Andrews (Kyle's friend), and Mike Gore (Sam Bridgman's friend). The crew makes sure the riders are protected from traffic, that their path is well lit, that they know which direction to travel, are well fed and hydrated, and that the transitions between riders is safe and within the rules.
