10th Place, M1 Season 1. 14th Place, Marble League 2020.
One of the most storied teams in the Marble League, Mellow Yellow gets less respect than teams like the Speeders or O’rangers due to their lackluster 2018 and 2020 seasons. That said, these racers were dominant in ML’s off-course races and they took that expertise to the more technical M1 courses. While they have a good sense of racing lines over difficult turns and able to make quick sprints, their middling Season 1 can be explained by lower top speed over the whole race compared to the field.
12th place, M1 Season 1 Racer Championship. 1 M1 Bronze.
It must be some intentional irony that Yellup is the only team member to have never won an individual gold medal in any tournament. Even more so when Yellup’s silvers came from losing some of the greatest showdowns in the Marble League, like the photo-finish in 2016 Hurdles or the battle to win the Marble Marathon. Should they pull it together better in the clutch, Yellup is the team’s great hope for the future, due to their careful attention to racing lines that shine on tracks like Hivedrive or Greenstone.
Team Captain. 25th place, M1 Season 1 Racer Championship.
Even with the caliber of captains in the Marble League, Yellow stands out for their integral role: they have raced indoors and outdoors, on rail or dirt, dry land or water. After 11 race appearances over the last five years, Yellow is best known for their consecutive gold medals in the 5m Sprint. But ML2020 had the captain’s most uneven performances yet, culminating in a first round elimination in the Sprint. This season of Marbula One could answer if this old veteran needs to move on for the next generation.
