Team Frutas Y Furioso are from a tight knit community in Eagle Rock, CA. Frutas Y Furioso is a homage to Los Angeles and its diversity. “I was having a cold beverage in Eagle Rock and the idea came up because there are at least 5-6 fruit carts within a mile radius of where we live,” said Stephen Melnick. Their fruit cart soapbox will be their first creation as no one on their team has any experience building something like this. “We love competition and love working with our hands. We want to win, but we are mostly there to have fun and at least make it down the hill,” said Stephen.
