Team Starr


The Brain Tumor Ride is a fun and inspirational day where the brain tumor community unites to inspire hope and take action in the fight against brain tumors. 

Progress in this fight starts one team, one rider, and one dollar at a time. Like the National Brain Tumor Society, we are fiercely committed to finding a cure.

Meet Team Starr:

Captain - Sandy Starr - A veteran rider. He loves to ride in the rain but prefers to ski powder. His bike is named "Dark Starr" and is very fast! He was new knees and is better than ever. 

Patti Goldberger is a veteran of many Brain Tumor rides. She got a new bike last year, she calls it "White Lighting". It is very fast but is prone to flat tires. We miss the basket she had on her old bike.

Emma Starr - There is a rumor that this former Team Starr rider will be riding again this year. We hope so.

Tyler Starr, rookie of the year two years ago, will not be riding this year. He is has exams and would rather study than ride.

Julie Starr Duker is a very good rider and former hockey player but can't ride this year as she will be Abu Dubai skiing inside.

Andy Gillies - The team doctor. He is very busy and we hope that he gets in some training rides before the event. 

David "le Poulet Noir" Elan is now an excellent skier. Le Poulet can't ride this year, he is going to be in Bangkok probably not riding his bike. 

Dianne Hurley - Team Starr hasn't heard from this former ice hockey player yet. There is a rumor that she is biking up from New York City the day before the ride to get some training in before the ride on Sunday.

The Dashe Family - Team Starr hopes that John, Ben, John and William are riding this year. Team Starr loves families who ride. 

Sue Bear - Is this powerful rider joining Team Starr this year? Who knows, only time will tell.

Jo-Anne Haney Tilton -  Jo-Anne seems to be saying that she isn't going to ride this year but Team Starr's captain is having lunch with Jo-Anne next week and Team Starr hopes she will change her mind. Jo-Anne taught Team Starr an important lesson last year, that one can bike ride and shop at the same time! 

Jennifer Silver is an excellent rider. She will always be on Team Starr even if she dosen't ride.

Webmaster and Ground Control Raine Figueroa.

Spiritual Leaders Jason Starr and Jake Duker.

Sponsorship - Bear Duker is trying to get Team Starr sponsored. I wish he would because Team Starr needs some swag. Also, Bear is trying to get Draft Kings to do a fantasy event for the ride.

Team Accountant - Starr Finer Starr LLP.

Team Pet - Algernon (he is a transgender cat now)

Team Beverage - Magic Hat 9 and/or Rolling Rock.
