Robert Nagle,  Eco-Challenge Multi-Winner: “Teamwork and Communication, Some Major Keys to Wins
By D.R. Richards

I recently met Robert Nagle at a Professional Ski Instructors of America Telemark Spring Rally, and when he mentioned that a particular piece of clothing he was wearing was great for “desert runs”, it got my attention. “Desert runs?” I asked,

“Yeah,” he responded, “I was a professional competitor for a number of years, and did a Sahara Desert Run, where we had to carry everything on our back, except water.”

“What?” I replied. I’d never heard of such a race.  He added, “Yes, I also used to compete in the EcoChallenge,” adding humbly, “We won it a number of times.”

Below, Robert shares what was were keys to his team’s success.
