Welcoming back an “OG” duo today who were the first recipients of the Rebelle Rally Team Spirit Award in 2016, and together placed in the Top 5 of the 4×4 class in 2016 and 2017. (Re)introducing in today’s Team Tuesday, Team #202 Melissa Fischer and Cora Jokinen!
If you know these two, you know off-roading, trail running, and recreational vehicles goes hand-in-hand with their lives. When they’re not out on the trail or exploring places like Moab, Melissa is an operating room nurse by trade and Cora is President of Torq-Masters Industries.
Something new for them this year? The X-Cross™ class! Melissa and Cora will be piloting a 2021 Ford Bronco Sport – and they’re beyond excited to take on the new challenge. To find out more about this very dynamic duo, read on.
Stoked to see these two back in the dirt with us soon!
Cora: Littleton, MA/Rochester NY.
Something only your best friend knows about you:
Cora: I love spreadsheets.
Favorite place ever:
Cora: A dirt road or trail I’ve never traveled on.
Why did you pick the vehicle you’re competing in?
Cora: We received the awesome opportunity from Ford to drive the 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands edition in the Cross over class. We are super excited to compete in this class, the other two times Melissa and I competed in the Rebelle Rally, 2016 and 2018, we competed in the 4×4 class in a Jeep.
Why the Rebelle?
