Russ was co-creator of the Cross Crusade. His riddles have proved many times over the years that the pen is mightier than the sword- and can cut even deeper. You will see him at almost every Crusade race, leading the field and laying down the pain. Often he taunts lesser mortals as the Black Knight. Russ's primary Crusade duty takes him to Sesame Donuts, where he collects some of the most critical items to the success of each day's race: coffee and donuts. Without his dedicated diligence, Brad and Brian would most likely be 10-20 pounds lighter than you see them today.
