BRIAN DAVIS, PA-C at Shasta Orthopaedics, had the opportunity to be the assistant crew chief of Team Enduring Hope in the Race Across America 2015. This two man racing team was filmed in a documentary called Godspeed, which follows the story behind Brad Cooper and Jerry Schemmel, two men in their 50s. Jerry has an artificial knee and Brad raced with a broken collarbone, a broken pelvis, four broken ribs and lacerations sustained during a training ride six weeks prior to the race.
This movie documents why The Race Across America is called the “World’s Toughest Bike Race”.
