Members of Makerspace competed in the Gambler 24 Hours of Le Mini’s, the world’s first 24-hour, off-road race for Gambler mini-bikes in Jacksonville, Florida. The S&T team placed sixth out of 40 teams.

The students built and upgraded their bikes at the Makerspace at Missouri S&T. The team completed over 1,100 laps during the 24-hour event. Though S&T didn’t win the competition, our team was one of the few groups to finish all 24 hours. S&T’s team ran into a few difficulties but learned a lot and look forward to competing again next year.

S&T received the spirit award for being extremely polite, always cheering on each other, having the most volunteers to help at the event, and always being willing to help their competitors.
