Cliff White, one of the members of Strong Machine Adventure Racing, participated in the 2017 Raid Gallaecia. His second experience racing in the Adventure Racing World Series (after the 2016 ITERA - Ireland), he teamed up with Eric Wyler and Rick Keilty of Chaos Raid, and Melody Hazi, forming a hybrid team of Chaos Machine. The team elected to short-course early in the race due to an injury to Melody's ankle, but rallied to finish 14th overall. Here's Cliff's report from the race:
