Discovering the Joy of Endurance with Ronald Tortola | LotDR Episode 050

Welcome to the Legend of the Death Race Podcast, where you’ll hear the legends of past Death Racers, new and old.

Ronald Tortola hails from Texas and was a life long athlete who came across endurance racing during the brief period of Death Race’s absence. Participating in Hurricane Heats and Agoge, he thought he was prepared for the challenge of the Death Race. As he would soon discover, there is no race like The Death Race. Listen as Roland talks about the training, the tricks he learned from past death racers; and how, no matter what year you race in, that nothing quite prepares anyone for the adventure that becomes a legend.
