Pullers pedal as hard as they can
Longtime friends Jaden Becker and Cole Consbruck are competitive by nature.
They met while fishing, and have gone head-to-head in a variety of sports and outdoor pursuits since their first competitive encounter.
Their friendly rivalry was illustrated in their tounges-out, legs-pumping, muscles-straining efforts at the Kids Pedal Tractor Pull competition Sunday at the Adams County FairFest.
The friendly but rowdy event attracted 71 competitors Sunday, 56 of which were 4-12 year-olds. The competition was divided by age and gender.
"I've been lifting weights and riding my bike to prepare for this," Jaden said.
