Getting Ready for the Climb

Tracy Fawns

Jean Michael Monot, 45, from France, is racing strong and comfortable in his rookie year at Badwater. After taking 10 years off from competing as a triathlete, Jean Michael is back on his legs and proving that he has what it takes to complete this course. Utilizing a 3-member crew, one is assigned to driving the vehicle only and the other 2 are in charge of all other aspects of his race. Heading to the summit of Townes Pass, he says that he has had no problems and that he is having a stellar race thus far.
