​Congratulations to Team Macho for a fantastic 2015


In the beginning of 2015, Christine Bannon-Rodrigues suggested that we bring back Team Macho. It has been years since Macho had a team out on the circuit. With an exceptional amount of help from Bannon, Team Macho was formed. We kept it small and quiet and only enlisted three athletes for our first year.
