Only the best come north, and the best are built tough.

What originally began as a dream workout, changed to working out a dream when Minot Airmen had the idea for the ultimate CrossFit challenge: Flipping an 800-pound tire 11 miles to raise money for wounded veterans.

"My goal was to flip the tire downtown," said Staff Sgt. Cody Lytle, 5th Operations Support Squadron. "Everyone thought it was silly. But I thought, why not?"

The idea for the tire-flip started with Lytle, a CrossFit enthusiast, looking for a more challenging workout.

While this full contact women's sport is a growing one in the Dakotas, it is one that some may have not had the opportunity to witness.

In the city of Minot, the Nodak Knockouts, part of the Mouse River Roller League, are a local roller derby team well on its way to popularity.
