"This is going to be a short day" said Dominic "PlatinumRig Dom" Maurice the founder of Platinum Rig as we left his house, outside of Montreal, Canada, at 7am to head to the Platinum Rig headquarters for what would turn into a thirteen plus hour workday.

Since it's beginnings in 2011 Platinum Rig is a name that has become famous in the obstacle racing world has been non-stop for it’s founder. For five days I got to live and work along side Dom.
BattleFrog Series is nothing if not ambitious; scaling an event from 3-6 events is a big deal, and moving into a new state is fraught with difficulty on levels of magnitude to putting on an event in your home market - ask any race company in (or out) of business now. What BFS did is beyond definition, and beyond reckless for any other event to even attempt. The sport is littered with the carcasses of races that tried, yet this is not a homage to their failures, it's a nod to the audacity of BattleFrog's ownership and executive management; they have a plan of action that would make any CPA tremble.

If it's raining, this must be Atlanta! For the third Atlanta race in a row, there was rain on Friday night into Saturday. And for the second race in a row, it was on top of already rain saturated ground. But there was a difference...for me anyway...the rain and humidity during the week caused my tent to feel like a soggy pretzel with not-cleaned-yet t-shirts tossed in the corners...soaking up pools of condensed water. This was actually making the idea of sloshing through extreme amounts of mud and water at the BattleFrog race seem quite attractive!
