We are 4 brothers competing in the 2018 Mongol Derby.
Aside from the personal and collective challenges that the derby throws at you, we are doing it for our father and uncle, Rob Bell. Rob suffers from Primary Progressive MS and is wheelchair bound. When Rob was younger, he was a fine horseman and an excellent rider. He dreamt of doing a safari on horseback, or another similar horsebound adventure. He is no longer able to fulfill this dream.
Every day, Rob struggles with the simplest of tasks. Driving is impossible, brushing his teeth is a chore. Despite this his remains incredibly positive and his determination and positivity are truly astounding.
We'll be riding across a country we've never been to, competing in an event that very few people have even heard of, let alone can comprehend, to help Rob fulfill a life’s dream.
It's a challenge worthy of our uncle, our dad.
We're riding for him.
